Dinner In the Kitchen Special Diets

Recipe of the Month- Salsa Bean Soup

This recipe is one of our family favorites.  It is great timing for this one with the cooler weather approaching.  It is a great alternative to chilli.  Seriously, this is the easiest recipe to dump in the crockpot in the morning and let it cook on low all day.  Great for a day that you have a lot to cover with the kids, or a field trip and you won’t be home all day.  I am really finding that my crockpot is my best friend these days.  It is a total lifesaver!  It is almost embarrassing that this recipe only has 2 ingredients, but is packed full of flavor.  It is also a great meal on a budget!  The beans and salsa at Aldi would cost less than $5.00.  Love it!  Let me know what you think.  For all of you who eat gluten free, this is completely gluten free!
