My mom, Cary Taylor passed away last week. She would have been 103 in December. Even though we had her much longer than most we are never ready to say goodbye. No more trips to Blue Earth for visits, or to pick her up and bring her to my home for family gatherings. Like most of us, she didn’t like the idea of going to a nursing home. Now she won’t have to. She lived in assisted living, but lately she had periods of confusion so it was time for a move. She will be missed.
Today my recipe comes from the Pioneer Woman, Lee Drummond. I thought it was too easy to be good, but I made it yesterday and we both liked it. A good cold weather soup, hope that you like it too!
7 Can Soup:
1 can chili without beans
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can Rotel tomatoes with green chilies
(I used mild)
1 can pinto beans, undrained
1 can kidney beans, undrained
1 can black beans, undrained
1 can corn, undrained
1 small pkg. Velveeta cheese (8 oz.)
1/2 pkg. taco seasoning
1/2 pkg. dry ranch seasoning, salad dressing mix
Do not drain any of the ingredients. Just dump them all into a crock pot and heat. I added the cheese after the soup was hot and heated until it was melted. I did add some onion and served it with a dollop of sour cream and corn bread on the side.
Have a great week!
