Looks like it’s time to post again! It’s been a while but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been in the kitchen!
I got this recipe from my friend Laura, who got it from her mom. Laura saw my Smoky Stuffed Peppers and thought I would enjoy this soup, which I did. Instead of simmering for an hour, I threw all the ingredients in the crock pot before I left for work one morning. I thought it worked good and according to Laura, the texture was the same as if it was simmered for an hour. Instead of buying chili sauce, I decided to make my own, which made the soup a bit too sweet. I would advise going out and buying Heinz Chili Sauce (should be next to the ketchup) instead of finding a recipe for it on-line and substituting that.
I would definitly make this soup again, and it feezes really well for a quick lunch or supper on these chilly days we’ve been getting lately.
