Crockpot Southwestern Corn Soup
Let me tell you something- this recipe far surpassed all of my expectations. I threw everything in the crockpot in the morning and all day I was thinking the soup would be pretty "meh." I'm not sure what made me doubt this recipe but I just wasn't holding out too much hope. Imagine my surprise when I lifted the lid from the crockpot, stuck my finger in (yes- finger- don't judge... I washed it, and it's my soup!), and realized that my soup wasn't "meh," rather it was delicious! John ate it hours after me and he too was obsessed. He even brought it up a couple days later. That is a good sign people, a very good sign. This was perfect when paired with a simple cheese quesadilla... I'm already planning on making this dinner again next week!
