I originally got this soup recipe from Bridget of Tales of Me and the Husband (one of my favorite blogs for years now), but I had to adapt it to my vegetarian needs. Let me tell you guys, this recipe is a favorite around here. When Scott walks in the door and smells that delicious taco smell of hot peppers, smoked paprika and simmering vegetables he tells me immediately “My day just got better”. It makes my day better, too because it is an easy healthy meal I can prepare in around 15 minutes (yep!) and leave in the crock pot to cook while I surf, write, return emails and hop around town wrangling kids. I’ve included both canned and fresh options for some of the ingredients. The version I make depends on how much time I have.
Add toppings such as cilantro, avocados, cheese and sour cream to your liking.
