Slow Cooker and Crockpot Soups!
I don’t know about you, but one of my favorite ways to use my slow cooker is for soups. There is something about coming home and having the house smell divine. Or even if you work from home like me, smelling it all day, just ups the anticipation.
Slow Cooker Mexican Chicken Noodle Soup
I found this Mexican Chicken Noodle Soup at Food52. The combination of cumin, coriander and turmeric sounded wonderful. I modified the recipe at bit because I did it in the slow cooker and I prefer to use bone in chicken for slow cooker soups.
This really is such an easy slow cooker recipe. You just put everything in the slow cooker except for the cilantro, pasta and lime juice. Then when it’s almost time to eat, you remove the chicken and shred it and turn the slow cooker to high and add the noodles! It all cooks in one pot!
Serve it in some cute soup bowls topped with the cilantro.
