One-Pot Spicy Cannellini Soup


One Pot Spicy Cannellini Soup- Blissful and Domestic www.blissfulanddomestic.com
When I ordered my basket  this week, I requested a Mexican themed veggie add on. I had a few new recipes I wanted to try out. I was able to get beautiful green tomatillos, cilantro, chiles, and peppers. Pretty much a rock star bunch for the recipes I had in mind this week. I decided to go with a soup first, since we were all craving the warmth soup offers on a chilly, windy day. We paired our soup with some whole wheat bread sticks. You can find the recipe in this weeks menu plan . The soup turned out great and those red heads of mine enjoyed it as well. It is always a plus when the littles gobble it up:)

So make some soup today, snuggle up with those littles, and stay warm.



One-Pot Spicy Cannellini Soup

1 medium onion chopped
1 cup cannellini white kidney beans*
1 cup pinto beans (cooked)*
1 cup red kidney beans (cooked)*
2 tbl cilantro
4 potatoes, washed and diced
4 cups beef broth**
2 Chile peppers, washed and diced
1 packet of taco seasoning

* if you do not make your own beans, then substitute 1 can of beans for each cup of cooked beans. - see how I make beans here)
** I used beef bouillon cubes and water

Place all ingredients in your crock-pot. Cook on high 5-6 hours
I do this first thing in the morning, so I have it hot and ready for lunch:)

  2. Hello! I just read your Yahoo story and I had to look you up. It was just what I needed this morning. My family has a similar story, our income is the same, we bought an old fixer upper farmhouse on 2 acres 6 years ago with no mortgage, garden, sew, vintage shop, whatever we can do to get by. I have 3 boys, 14, 8, and 3. We live extremely well for people in the poverty level, but sometimes I get discouraged, anyway, and I was feeling it this morning. I know I have a good life, but sometimes I think things like, "I will never get to go anywhere on a vacation again!" There are places I would like to see in my life, but at 42 with 3 kids, it's not looking likely! But anyway, it's great to meet you and know I'm not the only one living the frugal life. I will be reading! Have a super day!

  6. Just found your blog and I am checking everything out and I love it!! I was just wondering when you go to costco and buy in bulk what do you use to store everything in, like flour, beans, rice etc.? Do you have some large bins, bowls or what?

    1. Hi there! I use 5 gallon food storage tubs I get at Lowes and Home Depot. I go to Costco once a month and stock up on all my pantry staples.

  13. Just saw your Yahoo article. Thanks for sharing your wonderful ideas. With this upcoming sequestration, we will loose 20% of our income until September (fingers still crossed Congress will figure something out by tomorrow night), so any tips I find on better budgeting are great! Thanks, again.

  16. I read your story on yahoo, then looked up your blog....and here I am. Your story is inspirational I have to say. I'm already taking some of your ideas....I'm now looking for a bread maker too!

  17. I discovered your amazing site today and I have a question. You state that you grocery shop once a month. How do you do this when a grocery store changes it sales ads once a week? How do you take advantage of the bogo's or really good sales? I am really impressed and can't wait to start doing this. I have even convinced my husband to sit down with me and help. We already do a budget together and that has helped us tremendously.

  18. I also read your story on Yahoo! and found it simply awe-inspiring. There are a lot of people who take for granted for what they have and complain about what they do/don't have, but you have managed to make it all work and seem greatful for it all. I have a couple of blogs that I read on a daily basis and you are now one of them. I can't wait to try some of your recipes--especially your homemade bread recipes. I'm looking forward to everything else this blog has to offer!!!
