BooMama's Souptacular Crockpotolooza (or something like that)

Souptacular08

Surely I have spelled something wrong in that title, but mention the words "soup" and "crockpot" and I am ALL over it. Here are a couple of contributions for the event - fall & winter favorites of mine!

Corn Chowder Soup

6 slices bacon, diced
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 cups diced, peeled potatoes
2 packages (10 ounce each) frozen whole kernel corn, broken apart
1 can (16 ounce) cream style corn
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon Worchestershire sauce
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 cup water
Couple of drops of hot sauce (optional)
My own variation: Add 1 can evaporated milk at the end before serving

In skillet, fry bacon until crisp; remove & reserve. Add onion and potatoes to bacon drippings and saute for about 5 minutes; drain well. Combine all ingredients in Crock Pot; stir well. Cover and cook on LOW for 4 - 7 hours.

Mexican Soup

1 lb. ground beef
1 lg. Onion chopped
1 can refried beans
2 cans diced tomatoes
1 can chili beef soup
1 can cheddar cheese soup
2 cans Rotel tomatoes

Brown ground meat and onion. Add soups, refried beans and tomatoes. Simmer for 1 hour. This is best cooked in a slow cooker as it is easy to scorch. You may adjust the soup to your liking, adding only 1 can of tomatoes if you like it spicy or just 1 can or Rotel tomatoes if you like it mild. You may need to add a little water if it becomes to thick. I've also thrown in a can of corn, frozen corn, mexicorn - whatever - and stretch it even more.

Thanks, BooMama, for hosting!
