Marc and I have a favorite soup in our household -- Navajo Soup.
This recipe is actually from our friend, Lisa. I most definitely want to give Lisa complete and total credit for this recipe, and I'm hoping that Lisa doesn't mind that I'm sharing this recipe with the world :)
I actually first made this soup back in October for Community Life Leaders' Luncheon at our church. Then, recently, I made it at a Christmas party at Allen and Debby's -- the Saturday before Christmas.
This Christmas party was with the Tuesday morning Young Moms/Wives Accountability Group/Bible Study....I neglected to take photos at this party. But, I know Debby and Jess did plenty of photographing :)
So, I'll quit blabbing and move on with the recipe. Here goes....
* 1 lb. hamburger, browned with onion and garlic salt -- drained (I also used pepper, of course)
* 1 can corn
* 1 can petite diced tomatoes
* 1 can Ro-Tel tomatoes
* 1 can white beans
* 1 jar Cheese Whiz (not the small one)
Mix all together in crock-pot, and let simmer several hours. Serve with Fritos on top.
That's all there is to is...so easy and oh so good!
You know -- I can't make a post without photos. So, here are a few....
The meat browning with onion, garlic salt, and pepper....
I actually had mixed this soup the night before in a big bowl. Then, I put it in the crock-pot the next day -- the day of the party. So, here are the ingredients in a big bowl....
I actually completely forgot to take a photo when I put the soup in the crock-pot. I only managed to get a photo of the soup almost gone -- it was well liked so much that this is what I ended up with....And yes, even though this soup is very good, it does leave a mess in the crock-pot. However, it's nothing that a good overnight soaking can't handle :)
And, almost all of this soup was eaten at the party -- I had even made a double-batch. But, there was just enough for Marc to have some leftovers the next day. So, here's his bowl -- with the Fritos on top.
And, for your daily dose of what I'm personally thankful for....
Today -- #632 -- getting a smile from a baby....
Now, I'm extremely biased to Luke's smile. I absolutely LOVE his smile. Lately, he's been VERY smiley here at home with us. In fact, we've been calling it his "perpetual smile."
But, here's another favorite photo of mine. This photo is the first smile photo of Luke that I have. I will treasure it forever. He was probably around 7 weeks old or so with this smile.
Luke's smile is most definitely something I'm thankful for....
A trip back in time
