This is a tasty bowl of yum.way better than any soup from a can, and all most as easy to make as a canned soup, by using your crock pot. This recipe will make 4 good size servings, which makes the recipe fairly economic. I would how ever recommend serving the soup with ether bread, crackers or even a sandwich cause this soup I would say is more of a appetizer than meal. You'll most likely need to add extra salt as well as pepper to bring out the flavor. The ideal size of the crock pot for this recipe would be 3-quart. A word about the size of your slow cookers, try to use the size specified by the recipe to ensure proper levels of food, thorough cooking, and safe temperatures. I f you use a different-sized cooker than specified, make sure it's still between half and two-thirds full for food safety. however the cooking time may vary accordingly, larger cooker will take less time, and Smaller cooker will take longer. If your not using a plastic liner, be sure to spray the inside of your cooker with no-stick cooking spray for an easier clean up.
