Black and Red Mexican Slow Cooker Soup

This is a staple in our house. Serve it with tortillas, quesadillas, or tortilla chips and it's dinner! I usually assemble it the night before, stash it in the fridge and plug it in before I leave for work. My husband spices it up with hot sauce, but for my daughter and I, it's good as is. It's another recipe someone shared at a school potluck lunch :) Oh, and I'm totally guessing on the servings...

We loved this soup! It was so easy and tasty without any effort. I didn't realize I was low on carrots so I used sweet potato instead and used a 24oz can of diced tomatoes and a 14.5oz can of roasted tomatoes with green chills. I also omitted the sugar and added a red bell pepper. I was very impressed with the outcome of this soup. Thank you for posting!

Great soup! I went heavy on the vegetables, and I didn't have stewed tomatoes so I used a 20oz can of diced tomatoes and drained it slightly. I didn't drain the chilies. It was delicious and even better the next day! There is an amazing amount of fiber, protein and potassium, not to mention vitamins A & C. Very healthy. Loved it! Thanks!

I made this exactly as stated with the choirzo. Very good. We did crumble tortilla chips over it as well. Thanks for the great recipe!
