I am ready for shorts and flip flops already. We haven’t really even had much snow, but I’m sick of the cold. If I have to endure these cold winter months I love to warm up with a hearty soup. This one is basically a chili with Southwestern flavors and it really hits the spot. I usually make this on the stove top, but you can also prepare it in a slow cooker. Just add the browned beef along with the other ingredients and cook on low for about 6 hours. Stir in the thawed corn about an hour before serving. It makes a nice sized batch. I can feed my family of 6 with leftovers for a couple of lunches during the week.
