Slow Cooker Taco Soup Recipe

It turned chilly again today in Florida.  I'm not sure where the cold snap came from but I can tell you I'm ready to send it back. We were already enjoying the pool and the sunshine. What's better on a chilly day than soup.  This soup is really very budget friendly which makes it even better . It is also freezable which I am going to be taking full advantage of this week.I will put the leftovers into  individual containers for lunches and dinners when it is just me or to help me out during the work week.  Yes, every now and again it is just me.  Plus with my schedule these days I can use all of the extra short cuts and help available.   I received a pack of Tuttorosso tomatoes for review. We're going to use the 28 ounce diced tomatoes and puree in our soup today.  I have used Tuttorosso Tomatoes in several other recipes.  I am always pleased with the end results when I do so. They are not to sweet and not to tangy.

Slow Cooker Taco Soup

Here's what you need:

  • 2 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups of boiled shredded chicken
  • 1/4 cup of taco seasoning 
  • 1 -28 ounce can of Tuttorosso diced tomatoes
  • 1- 28 ounce can of Tuttorosso tomato puree
  • 1- 14 ounce can of black beans drained
  • 1- 14 ounce can of pinto beans drained
  • 1/8 teaspoon of red pepper (optional)
  • 1/8 teaspoon of salt 
  • 1 can of whole kernel corn drained (optional) * I leave the corn out because I don't like corn but if you want something extra this goes with it well.

What you need to do: 

Throw everything into your slow cooker giving it a good stir. Cover and cook on high 4 hours.  Serve it with cheddar cheese sprinkled on top .  I serve this with cornbread muffins.  You can also serve it with a side of Frito's or Tortilla chips.  If you want something else add a scoop of sour cream.

What did we think of the Tuttorosso tomatoes used in this recipe?  We used a 28 ounce can of Tuttorosso Puree.  Tomato puree  is really good in pasta sauces. We used it to give our soup a thicker and creamier taste. It was an excellent add in for this.  We also used the diced tomatoes in a 28 ounce can. These tomatoes are all natural and they work perfectly in soups making them just what I needed for today's Taco Soup recipe.  These tomatoes are so red when you open the cans you know that your opening a can of goodness.

 Tuttorosso also has a new line of no salt products. You can find no salt in the peeled plum tomatoes, tomato sauce and also crushed tomatoes.  I am watching my salt intake more these days. With all of the stress of life lately I have had higher blood pressure. It is important for me to keep it under control without having to take medication so I try to do what I can to manage it.  One of those things is watching my salt.  The new line from Tuttorosso makes doing this even easier.

Tuttorosso has recently changed their label also.  They use to have recipes on the back of the cans.  Personally I like to get a recipe on the back of the can. It can give me a new idea and I may have all of the other ingredients on hand. I was not sure what I thought of the new label design at first.  Now,  on the back panel of your label you will find tips and tricks to help you with your cooking.  What do you think about that?   I think it is neat that they are telling you which type of tomato works well with what type of dish.  I know sometimes when I am trying something new finding the right can to go with what the recipe needs can be confusing.  I also like that there are cooking tips. You can learn something new everyday if you want to.  What I really like about the label is the health information.  With some new health concerns recently diagnosed in our family what we are putting into our bodies is more important than ever to me. This label is so easy to read and so appreciated by this Mom!!

Earth Day Activities for Children

April 22nd is Earth Day. Earth Day is celebrate annually on April 22nd to demonstrate support of environmental protection.  In preschool we talk about ways we can help the world.  We also get crafty. One thing about preschool we know how to recycle and reuse!  Trash is some of our favorite crafting materials.  Here are a few activities we are doing this year for Earth Day.

Coffee Filter Earth's

 photo coffeefilterEarth.jpg
  • coffee filters
  • food coloring blue and green
  • 2 cups 
  • water
  • paintbrushes or droppers
Add a few drops of blue food coloring to a small amount of water in a cup.  Do the same in a second cup with the green.   Have the children use the paint brushes or droppers to add blue and green to the coffee filter to make their own version of the Earth. 
 photo coffeefilterearth2.jpg

You can also make these with water color markers. Have the children color them and then spray them with a water bottle to let the colors run.

Water Bottle Greenhouses 

  • 2 - water  bottles , or soda bottles 
  • scissors
  • soil
  • tape or glue
  • seedling or plant
1. Your going to cut 2 (2 liter) bottles in half.
2.  Take the lid from one water bottle and poke holes in it. This will be for drainage later. 
3.    Take the top half of one bottle and place it spout down into the wider base part of  one of your bottles. (see pic) You want this to be the lid that has the holes in it.
 photo WaterBottleGreenHouse3.jpg 
4.  Secure the two parts with either glue or duct tape.  I used duct tape but either works.
5.   Add your soil and seed or small plant now. We planted started squash seeds today.
6.  Now take your 2nd water bottle top. Push the sides in slightly and this will slide into the other bottle.  I took another piece of tape and secured it here just to have things nice and tight.

 photo WaterBottleGreenHouse5.png

7. Place it in a window or area it will get some sunshine.  Your seed should take off pretty quickly and since the bottle is clear you should be able to see what the roots do.  I'll post an update when ours start growing so you can see =)

We're also going to be working on our Spring Garden more outside this week weather permitting.  What Earth Day activities do you have planned?

Easy Egg Salad Recipe for those Leftover Easter Eggs

What will you do with all of those leftover Easter eggs?  My kids love to dye eggs , but not one of them likes to eat them.  We always have piles of eggs leftover after the big day.  So, what can you do?  Make egg salad for lunches the next week of course.  Here is a really easy egg salad recipe that we enjoy.  And if you have leftover ham you can add that in too.  It gives it a twist and makes it even better.  We rarely have ham leftovers though.  Everyone likes ham in this house.

Easy Egg Salad Recipe

  • 6-7 hard boiled eggs (you can do more If you'd like you just may need to add extra mayo)
  • 4-5 large tablespoons of mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons of relish
  • 1 tablespoon of spicy mustard
  • salt and pepper to taste 

 photo EasyEggSalad.png

What do you do?  I just use a fork to slice up my eggs a bit.  You can  cut them up mash them up as you can see from the photo I leave mine kind of chunky.   Then mix in all of your other ingredients.

Serve it up on toasted bread, a croissant or bun.  Today we're having ours on honey wheat toast.

 photo EggSaladRecipe.png

If you would like to add your leftover Easter ham you can do it in a couple of ways.  Dice it up and add it into the egg salad.   That is how I like it . Or add a couple of slices of ham to your bread or roll and then top it with a nice spoon of egg salad.  Anyway you do it I'm sure it will be great and you'll be using up what you have on hand.

Hope you guys have a great Easter!

 photo photo16.jpg

As a mom of three busy kids I have mountains of laundry and more mountains each week. I seriously question where it all comes from and how they go through so many clothes in a week.  Regardless the mountains are always present.  I've also had quite a few laundry mishap over the years.  Accidentally turning my sons white baseball jersey pink , not to mention socks and underwear.  It's always fun to mess up an entire load of laundry .
