Crock Pot Mexican Corn and Bean Soup
This Crock Pot Mexican Corn and Bean Soup is a great way to make both of those things happen. It takes less than 15 minutes to put this hearty dish together in the crock pot and it features a rainbow of nutritious veggies your kids are sure to love.
The soup is incredibly flavorful and while the cumin and chili powder might make you think it’s spicy, the taste is actually quite mellow. I like to put out some grated cheddar or parmesan and a bowl of sour cream for my kids to sprinkle and dollop on top. I find that little touches like those make eating fun and allow little ones to make this soup their own.
