Soups on!!

Well, I know the weather is supposed to be a little nicer this week but...I'm always on the look out for a good soup recipe! I found this Minestrone soup recipe over at Our Best Bites. Now the name kind of had me turn my nose up for a second but...after reading the ingredients...I think I'll give it a try! Especially since I have some Italian sausage in the freezer that I was wondering what to do with! I'll probably leave out the Zucchini too. I also like the idea that you can put it in the crock pot!

Here is a different one that I made the other day and hubby loved it!! After tweaking it just like I wanted's Definitely a keeper!!

Tamale Soup
1 lb. ground beef
1 small onion
1 clove garlic
1 small red bell pepper, chopped
1 can hominy
1 (15 oz.) can black beans
1 tsp. cumin
2 c. water
2 beef broth bouillon cubes
1 T. chili powder
1 small can chopped green chili's
2 cans tamales, shucked and quartered

Brown beef, draining well. Add onion, garlic, and pepper. Saute until tender. Add remaining ingredients except tamales. Simmer for 30 min. then add tamales and simmer for 15 more min.
* put in a bowl and top with cheese and sliced avocado's (optional)

For crockpot version: Do the same as above leaving out the tamales. Cook on low for 6-8 hrs. 30 min. prior to serving, add tamales and heat thoroughly.

If you have any good soup recipes you would like to share...just post in the comments! Have I told you before that I LOVE new recipes?!!
