Mexican Veggie Soup

Friday, March 17, 2023

I love soup on cold March nights. This one is another cozy one to throw in the crockpot and let simmer away all day. It does take a little longer than most of my recipes to prep, but its totally worth it! 

Freezer Meal Prep Time: 7 Minutes & 50 Seconds
Serves 4: 227 calories, 42g carbs, 5g fat, 9g protein
