If you keep some basic ingredients in the house you can throw together a filling and satisfying crock pot soup in no time. Throw all the ingredients in and forget about it until it’s time to eat.

There is no right way or wrong way to make it. You could make it 20 times a year and come up with a different recipe each time.

 As long as you have some basic ingredients on hand. And it doesn’t matter if you do not have all of these ingredients on hand. You can change your recipe simply by adding or leaving out some of the ingredients that I have listed.

I make my crock pot soup the same way I make a traditional pot of soup. The first thing I do is take a quick inventory of the pantry, freezer and refrigerator.

Canned Beans for crock pot soup

 

Sometimes I will add chicken to my soup but if I don’t have chicken on hand or just feel like making a vegetable soup I skip the chicken all together.

If I am using chicken I may use skinless boneless, bone in chicken breasts or Tyson Grilled and Ready Chicken. I made a crock pot Southwestern Chicken Chili using the Tyson Grilled and Ready Southwestern Chicken Breast Strips that turned out really good. The Tyson chicken is fully cooked so you can throw it  in the crock pot at anytime.

When I use raw chicken I will cook it separately and use the homemade chicken stock  instead of canned stock.

  1. I love a good veggie soup. Although we don’t get too many cold days here in Florida, it’s still nice to have a bowl of warm soup to enjoy after a long day’s work.
