Texas Busy Day Soup

Victoria Wilson


Got this from my sister-in-law, who got it from someone else, etc.

Another name for it is Velveeta Chicken Tortilla Soup (minus the tortillas).

You could use any meat. I prefer the Costco Kirkland canned chicken.

Slow Cooker Crock Pot


1 lb
hamburger, browned and drained (or 3 lg cans chicken breast meat w/liquid)
1 can(s)
28 oz - diced tomatoes w/liquid
1 can(s)
15.25 oz - rotel tomatoes w/mild jalapenos or chilies w/liquid
1 can(s)
large whole kernel corn or 2 -15 oz cans, drained
1 can(s)
14 or 15 oz can pinto beans, drained
1 can(s)
14 or 15 oz can black eyed peas, drained
1 Tbsp
chili powder
1 box
(32oz) original velveeta cheese, cubed

Directions Step-By-Step

Combine first 7 ingredients and warm up. Add cubed Velveeta a little at a time, to keep it from burning, and cook on low heat until Velveeta is completely melted.
This makes a really large pot of soup. I used my crock pot on low. If you want it a little runny, use more liquids from the ingredients. If you like it a little thicker, use less liquid from the ingredients.

It also tends to be a little salty, so you can use no salt added vegetables and low fat Velveeta.
