Part of the fun of being a food blogger is meeting other food bloggers, either in person or virtually, online.
I met fun-loving Jamie Harrington online when she featured my Chicken Cacciatore  in her roundup of 33 Three-Ingredient Slow Cooker Recipes . Man is that a good list, because really, who wants to use 15 ingredients when you’re throwing together a slow cooker meal? Isn’t the purpose of the appliance to make it easy?
So as I was poking around that article, she mentioned her favorite recipe, a Slow Cooker Taco Soup . Of course I had to make it!
This is her photo of her soup, and it looked delectable to me. So I borrowed her recipe and tweaked around with it a bit. You know I like to tweak.
I used my favorite bean — black-eyed peas — because we might as well keep the good luck going, even if it is past New Year’s Day. My theory is they deliver good luck all year long; that’s my story and I’m sticking to it. I used steamed black-eyed peas in a convenient package, and a tube of taco seasoning that is so convenient and delicious. You’ll find both in the refrigerated produce section.
Thanks, Jamie, for a great and easy dinner! And the house smelled wonderful as it was cooking.
