Soup Loving Nicole

I haven't always enjoyed cooking but Allrecipes has changed that for me over the years. I now consider myself a foodie and am always up for a good challenge in the kitchen. There isn't anything I won't try at least once. Summer is my favorite time of the year and when I am not recipe hunting, menu planning, etc. I spend my time fishing gardening, and babysitting my chickens.
Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

It was a cold and rainy day and I was looking for a good comfort soup and I found it in this one. Easy ingredients that I had on hand and I'm not sure why one reviewer said this lacked in spice and added things. This WAS spicy and lacked in nothing. The beer really added that special touch. If you don't like beer then DON'T complain about the beer taste.....DUH!!!! Come on people!!! This one was easy and lacked for nothing when you need a quick and easy and pick me up for dinner.

I cooked corned beef for the very first time today and used this recipe. Go with the beer. I bought a pre-packaged thing of corned beef and the beer made it extremely tender. My hubby now has a different opinion on this particular meal. Love it...thanks!

Hot German Potato Salad

I let another reviewer talk me into using less potatoes and I shouldn't have. The flavor was good and tart. Stick to the original amounts the recipe calls for and if you don't like hot potato salad or you don't like vinegar then DON'T make it anyways and then complain. Geez I hate when people do that!!! This was very good and I will make again!

Asparagus Soup

I get so tickled at reading the reviews and this recipe is a classic example. If this entire batch of soup is too high in fat and sodium than I must be a terribly unhealthy cook. Since when is 1 cup of 1% milk and a dash of garlic salt entirely too fattening/sodium for 4 servings of soup? That is just funny to me. I made this soup tonight with some asparagus I had bought at the store that was going bad and a few sprigs from my pathetic garden and I DID use chicken broth (not by any means a vegetarian) and because I like things a little spicy I added some spices that gave it some heat (personal prerference is all). I had something else lined out for dinner (hubby hates asparagus) but I did taste this as I was putting it in my to-go container for tomorrows lunch and it was so good that I made the hubby taste a little spoonful and his reply was, "I hate aspargus and I'm not a big fan of soup but this isn't all too bad". This is a very simple,easy, and extremely fast base to work with if you like asparagus. Get creative and add things you like. And please, don't go giving it a bad review because you don't like asparagus. HELLO!

Okay, I tweaked this just a bit due to what I had on hand and my personal taste (more broth/soupy, onions, cilantro for topping etc.) but hands down this was a great recipe with good flavor, fast, and easy to make. I will be keeping this one for days when I don't have much extra time but crave a hot comforting soup. Thank you!

Hamburger Vegetable Soup

I did this in the crockpot and added my own personal touch but it is a good receipe and has endless possibilities. If you don't want to guess with the consistency then just use potatoes instead of the pasta and you know where you stand at all times. Thanks for a great way to use up some ground venison and in addition get a comfort food full of vitamins!

Shrimp Enchiladas Suizas

This tasted fine but it didn't look very appetizing on the plate. It did not look like enchiladas but more of a casserole. Again, tasted fine but was disappointing for all of the money and hard work that went into it. Also, it takes WAY longer to prepare than stated so keep that in mind if you make it.

I did this in a slow cooker and added celery and potatoes and it turned out very good. I topped it with hot peppers, cilantro, cheddar cheese, sliced black olives, and green onions.

Mexican-Style Shredded Pork

GREAT pork recipe for tacos. I stuck to the recipe except I added some extra chipolete peppers and adobe sauce but only because I used wild game and it is a bit harder to season. I will definitely make again once hubby gets us another hog. Recipe is a keeper! Thank you!

These turned out really good and were a nice change from the ordinary ones. I de-seeded the jalapeno out of fear they'd be too hot but I should have left them in as the recipe called for. Thank you for this different variety and I will definitely makes these again!
