I’m still exploring the crock pot and with the seasonal chill in the air I decided on a Salsa Chicken and Black Bean soup. It’s a reader favorite from the A Year of Slow Cooking site and understandably so.
It’s mild though flavorful and could please most palettes, though personally I was glad to have some chipotle Tabasco on hand to spice things up.
I made the mistake of skipping the step of rinsing my canned beans. It meant a “soupier” soup rather than the slightly thickened one I was expecting. Still a great easy recipe that will please a wide variety of people raised on Tex Mex (Americans).
