I wasn’t really feeling the Meatless Monday thing this week (again), but it just so happens that the meal I’ve been cooking up all day is meatless and Mexican-y.
I really want to try and make a crockpot meal at least once a week so that was my #1 goal as I put together a dinner plan for this week. I had this package of Black Bean Soup mix that Bob sent me. Okay, I don’t think Bob himself sent it, but someone from his company did.
I soaked the beans over night and this morning added the following to the crockpot:
1 package black bean soup mix (soaked overnight and drained)
1 chopped onion
1 jar salsa
2 Tb. minced garlic
2 boxes broth (use vegetable broth to make this veg)
Meanwhile I ate watermelon…
Aaand… 6 hours later the soup is done! You can let it cook for more but the beans might break down a little more. I like a good mix of half broken beans half intact.
I topped it with shredded cheese and slurped up the cheesy, beany strings.
*Please note – my phone tried to autocorrect “crockpot” to “crackpot” when I was instagraming earlier.
**Also note – “instagraming” is a legit verb.
Question: What’s for dinner?
