Creamy Tomato Soup

Recipe Details:

I created this recipe for demos during the cold winter months. It is a quick and easy crockpot recipe that takes minutes to prepare and then cooks overnight. You may make a vegan version by using vegetable stock. Be warned this makes an entire crockpot of soup. So it’s great if you want a soup that can sit on warm though out the day and let folks eat it as they are hungry. If you want a smaller sized version, the reduced ingredient list may be found on the pdf version below.

Albondigas al Chipotle Soup

Albondigas al Chipotle

Recipe Details:

This soup is both a main dish and a side. It’s a wonderfully warm soup filled with meatballs. For a Mexican themed dinner it will be the star attraction. We suggest weighing each meat ball so they are the same size and cook in the sauce for the same amount of time. So is it a meatball soup or is it meatballs in a delicious sauce? However you look at it, you must try this fabulous meal.
