Mexican Beef Soup

Mexican Beef Soup

The whole collection!

I received a new Cuisinart Slow Cooker for Christmas.  When I was younger and got a kitchen appliance for Christmas I said thank you and thought, “I guess you want me to cook better.”  Today I get so excited and start thinking about all the dishes I can make and share.  My older Crock Pot doesn’t cook with even heat anymore and my newer one is way too large for my normal day-to-day cooking.  This one is the perfect size (4 quarts) and it allows me to brown the meat in the same pot I’m going to cook in.   The pot does get hot enough to brown and leave all those brown bits on the bottom to make a delicious sauce or soup!  Then I can turn it to slow cook and set a timer.  It goes off at the appointed time.  If I run late getting home from work my dish won’t be overcooked!
