I just got a crock pot and I’m dying to use it. It’s cold where I live so I thought soup would be a great thing to try!
Does anyone have any good soup recipes? It would be great if we could freeze the leftovers (after it’s all been cooked).

This recipe for Olive Garden’s Zuppa Toscana is super good. DH doesn’t like soup very much, but he LOVES this soup.

I love this soup: spinach, chicken and wild rice soup. As the recipe says, works great with leftover Thanksgiving turkey too instead of chicken. It’s very filling and perfect with a salad for dinner. I usually double up the recipe and freeze the leftovers… One serving is more than enough for me so I can get several lunches/dinners out of it!

One of my favorites.
I also do veggie beef (+/- barley). Beef stock (simmer bones if desired), stew meat, diced tomatoes, green beans, carrots, onions, I like a bit of purple cabbage, potatoes, and any other veggies you like. Salt/pepper/cayenne to taste. I think it takes quite a bit of salt to taste right. I cook low/slow for many hours to make sure the meat is tender.

I have a few soup recipes. But this one I can remember by heart.
Left over grilled chicken – chunked (or any cooked chicken) about 3-4 breasts depending on size.
Chicken broth 4 cups
Jar of salsa
Can of beans (black or pinto)
frozen corn 2 cups
Serve with sour cream, cheese, and toasted flour shells. (Slice flour shells into thin strip and back until golden brown and crispy.
combine all ingredients and cook on low for two hours Or until heated through.
or if you’re using raw chicken combine all but the beans and cook on low for 4 hours. Shred the chiclen and then add the beans for 30 more minuts on low.
make sure you drain and rinse the beans.
