Slow Cooker King Ranch Chicken Soup: the lazy way to make an absolutely delicious classic casserole.

Wait. I mean the cozy way to make an absolutely delicious classic casserole!

Maybe it’s both lazy and cozy. Either way, it’s good, and you’re going to want to try it!

You chop up a few things, pour in a few cans of some things, add some seasonings, and, well, that’s about it! You’ll burn more calories eating this thing than you will making it.

I know, wouldn’t that be awesome?

This is almost the exact same recipe as my casserole, but with the soup version, you don’t use all the tortillas and cheese you typically would use to make this. (Which probably makes you wonder, “Then why would I even eat this?”, but believe me, it’s delicious and such a warm treat on a fall day!)

In case you’re ever wondering what goes on behind the scenes when I’m taking photos of these recipes, here you have it. It’s a family affair. When I say to Aaron, “Hey! I need your help taking food photos for my blog,” Gipper thinks I say, “Hey! I need your help eating food for the dog.”

Every time, Gip, every time.

And normally my 2.5-year-old isn’t sitting so sweetly and patiently – normally she’s got her nose in whatever I’ve made to ensure it smells good. She’s my Smeller in Chief. She and Gip make a great team.
