It's one of my favorite things about the weather becoming cooler and down right cold. SOUP. It's acceptable to make for dinner 5 out of 7 nights a week. Mike isn't so happy about soup season. He thinks I over do it. I love me some soup and the girls tend to enjoy most of them, so it is what it is! Many people make Taco Soup with ground beef. I prefer anything with chicken over ground beef so that is what I made.
|Bud Light usually isn't my choice but it's all I had...|
3 Cups Shredded Chicken
1 Can Corn
1 Can Kidney Beans
1 Can Black Beans
1 Can Tomatoes (if you can get the ones with green chili's all the better)
1/2 Can of Beer
1 Pkg. Taco Seasoning
1 Tsp. Garlic Powder
1 Tsp. Onion Powder
1/2 Onion Chopped.
2 Cups Water
Jalapeno Pepper if you dare....
Set your Crock pot out. This one is easy! First Chop up your onion!
Then chop up a Jalapeno if you want to use them. Here is the story as to why these ones are so evil. I had a bunch of them in my CSA box this week so I thought this would be a great way to use up a couple. I started to cut one up, tore out the seeds and ribs. Chopped up one half and tried a little piece to see how hot these were. My mouth was on FIRE. I wasn't happy. I washed my hands twice and went on with my day. Well, these things wouldn't leave me alone. I would touch my face and my face would be on fire. I would tough my eye and my eye was on fire. I kept washing my hands all day and nothing would get rid of it. About 8 hours later the burn really set in. My hands were on fire! I got a burn from these jalapenos! Only after cutting half of one!!!! So I cried and whined to Mike about how my hands were just hurting so bad. I did a google search and found that if you make a paste of baking soda and water and let your hands sit in it for a long time it will help. Well, it was 10pm at that point and I gave it a try for about 15 minutes. It helped but didn't get rid of the burn. I took a couple Tylenol and went to bed. I woke up this morning and I no longer have burning hands! Yay!! Back to the recipe.....
Now the fun part! Put everything into the Crock Pot! Here we go!
