Chili Verde Soup

This week I went to my favorite local Mexican restaurant with my family and had the most amazing chili verde soup. I craved the soup the rest of the week and had to try and make it for myself! This soup is incredibly easy and so flavorful! It has a lot of canned items in it so it makes it cost effective by utilizing some non-perishable items.

I also made some pork in the crockpot while I was at class to add to the soup. The pork ended up being so tender! The crockpot is my new favorite cooking method for this season in life. It’s so old school and I love it! My working mom utilized the crockpot the entire time I was in elementary school and it was so nice to come home to a warm house with the smell of food that has been cooking all day!
