Recipes from my Kitchen
I tried a new recipe for guacamole. It was so yummy! I’ve been using my standard recipe for years but was read to try something new. I found one online: http://blogs.babycenter.com/life_and_home/four-seasons-secret-guacamole-ole/ It was amazing! If you like guacamole.. then I recommend you give it a try!
Instead of the taco filling I was going to make I decided I needed a crockpot meal for the day. So I came up with this one..
Crockpot Mexican Soup
1 cup dried black beans
2 ½ to 3lbs beef pot roast, cut into chunks
4 cups chicken broth
4 cups corn, frozen or canned (drained if using canned)
1 medium onion, diced
1 red or green pepper, chopped
1 to 2 jalapeno chopped peppers, remove as many seeds as you like, the more seeds the hotter the soup
2t chili powder
Salt & pepper, to taste
Do a quick soak of the beans. To do this, put beans in a large pot and cover well with water. Bring to a boil and cook for 1 minute. Turn heat off and let beans sit for 1 hour. Drain.
After beans have been drained put in the bottom of a large crockpot. Place beef on top and add chicken broth. Add remaining ingredients. Cook on low for 10 to 12 hours.
I served this soup along with the guacamole & tortilla chips and a salad. It was a delish meal!
