On those busy days where you don't have time to cook, it's good to have a couple of recipes that are filling, tasty, and quick. Today I'm highlighting my quick vegetable soup. There's almost nothing to it.
Quick Veggie Soup
1 bag Pictsweet Mixed Vegetables
One piece good port tasso
One can Rotel original tomatoes and chilis.
Salt and pepper (to taste)
Cut up the tasso into 3/8th inch chunks. In a large saucepan, combine water, tasso, mixed vegetables and Rotel tomatoes. Add water. Salt and pepper to taste. Cook on a simmer for an hour or so, or until you can't stand it any longer.
Serve with saltine crackers, or a good cornbread. If you don't know how to make cornbread, this recipe is as good as any, and better than most. I think I'll ask Milady to make a cornbread when she comes home. Yeah, I can cook cornbread, but she makes a better one than I do. And, she can make a small pone, where mine always fill a big skillet.
