I know the official start of spring is (finally) right around the corner, but I have one more soup recipe to share with y’all.  This is a delicious and easy slow cooker recipe from My Kitchen Addiction that I have made multiple times already.  This soup is easy to adapt to your favorite ingredients and flavors. Try it and I think you will love it as much as I do.

Slow Cooker Vegetable Soup

1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

1/2 sweet onion, diced

4 cloves garlic, minced

32 oz. low sodium vegetable stock or broth

28 oz. diced tomatoes with juice

16 oz. frozen mixed vegetables

1 1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning

1 tsp. Kosher salt

1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

1/2 cup small pasta (I used elbow.)


In a skillet over medium heat, warm the olive oil and add the chopped onion and minced garlic.  Cook for 6 to 8 minutes or until the onion/garlic mixture is soft and tender.  Transfer this to a slow cooker and add the remaining ingredients except the pasta.

Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or on high for 3 to 4 hours. About 45 minutes before you are ready to serve the soup, add the pasta and cover.  Continue to cook on low until the pasta is cooked.  I served this with a side of cornbread and it made a wonderful meal.

C & I were invited to a Super Bowl party back in February so I went looking for a new dip recipe to try.  Of course, I found this on Pinterest from the blog My Kitchen Addiction.  This is the link to the original recipe.  I tweaked it a little to suit my taste and the ingredients I had and it turned out great.  There were no leftovers at all to bring back so I know it was a success.

1 pound lean ground beef

1/2 white onion, diced

1 tsp. dried minced garlic

8 ounces light cream cheese, softened

1/2 cup light ranch dressing

2 tbsp. taco seasoning

4 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded 

Tortilla chips


Preheat oven to 400 degrees and spray a pie pan (or rectangle baking pan) with nonstick spray.  The pan I used is about 6×8”.  In a skillet over medium heat, cook the ground beef, onion and minced garlic until the beef is cooked through.


In a bowl, combine the cream cheese, ranch dressing, chili powder, and ground cumin.  Add the beef mixture and half of the shredded cheese.  Stir to combine.  Pour that mixture into the prepared baking dish and top with the remaining cheese. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the cheese is golden and bubbly.  Serve with tortilla chips or corn chips.
