Easy Soups = Wintertime Win


There is nothing that makes me happier than a super easy dinner that yields plenty of leftovers. Because of that, today I’m sharing recipes for super easy soups that will warm your heart and belly. Let’s celebrate National Soup Month!

Taco Soup

This first soup is so easy that I’m just going to post a picture. No recipe needed. It is delicious. It could not be easier. It yields plenty of delicious leftovers.

You can substitute chicken for the ground beef.

Cook a pound of chicken in the crock pot. Pull apart, and throw in. Done!

Crock Pot Potato Soup


One 30 oz bag of frozen diced hash browns

32 oz box of chicken broth

Can of cream of chicken soup

One package cream cheese

3 oz bacon bits

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Salt and pepper to taste


Put the hash browns in the crockpot. Add in the chicken broth, cream of chicken soup and half of the bacon bits. Add a pinch of salt and pepper to taste. Cook on low 7-8 hours or until potatoes are tender.

An hour before serving, cut the cream cheese into cubes and place in the crockpot. Mix a few times throughout the hour before serving. Once the cream cheese is completely mixed in, it’s ready to serve.

Top with cheddar cheese and some additional bacon bits!

A practicing civil litigation attorney in downtown Nashville, she may look familiar — because she was featured in a Krystal commercial with two of her friends and her face was on the Krystal cup while that commercial aired. Courtney is a huge fan of football, and when she is not traveling, she can be found checking out live music in Nashville. She currently lives in Franklin with her husband Clark, baby girl Elaine (who is the easiest/sweetest baby, and the love of their lives), and 11 year old mixed breed dog Penny.
