Meet Penguins, Pasta, and Polka Dots!

Hi there, new friends! My name is Halie, and I blog at Penguins, Pasta & Polka Dots. I'm so excited to be here with you today! I know not everyone likes guest posts (even though I seem to be one of the few that actually do), so I'll keep this short, sweet, and hopefully interesting - and maybe you'll come visit me at my own blog soon :)

I'm a 20-something Florida girl, just living life, and having fun documenting it all on my little bloggy-blog. And isn't the blog world so much fun? I'm loving it - meeting new people, and finding new blogs really is so much fun! I write about daily life mostly, but those things might include: food, movies, adventures with my boyfriend, recipes, my youth group at church, nail art and some crafts. But today, I'm sharing with you a super duper easy soup recipe. I mean super easy people, so get ready to pull out your crock-pot, and reap yummy rewards, without much effort.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Enchilada Soup

1 can black beans (drained and rinsed)
1 can whole kernel corn
1 can diced tomatoes (I did the ones with green chiles for some extra pizzaz)
1 can condensed cream of chicken soup
2 cans enchilada sauce (in the Ethnic food aisle)
1 diced green or red pepper
1/2 diced onion
1 1/2 cups milk
2 cans cooked chicken (if you want to put in a tad more effort, cook 2 chicken breasts, and shred them yourself)
Shredded pepper jack cheese & sour cream for topping

Throw it all in your crock pot, and cook on low all day, or approximately 8-9 hours! (Or if you want it for lunch, cook it on high.) And man this baby is so yummy. And hello? Easiest soup recipe, maybe ever. The "hardest" part is just some simple dicing of peppers and onions!

Then when you serve it, top it with pepper jack cheese if you like spice, or the Mexican blend cheese to tone it down a bit. And of course some sour cream on top doesn't hurt anything either :)

So there you have it! A quick and easy soup recipe, for anyone who is a Mexican/Tex-Mex fan! I personally loved the stuff, and am already planning on making it again next week. Yum! I hope you all come and visit me at my blog, because I really do like making new friends! So stop by and say hi, and let me know how you found me today! :)
