Sunday Slow Cooker:  Spicy Corn and Kale Soup

Originally I never intended to share today’s recipe on the blog. I have been on a mission lately to clean out my pantry. The result is almost always some type of soup and although good, none have been special enough to photograph and share. However this soup was different. I was surprised by how much I loved the simple combination of tomatoes, spice, and corn. I added some kale because I had it on hand, but you could add any veggies, beans, or protein to mix things up.

    I’m so happy to have found this recipe today! A friend gave me some kale,jalapenos and cilantro yesterday that needed to be used pretty soon. I was kind of at a loss as how to best use them all. Then I saw this;) I’m going to varnish with cilantro or maybe make a cilantro lime cream. Not sure yet. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe, I love to make, what we call Thursday Night soup, which means cleaning out the pantry plus any leftovers from the week. It’s never been the same way twice but its always good.

    I’m planning this soup for busy day tomorrow. Did you cook it on a high or low temp?
