Kathleen, I made your Slow Cooker Chili Soup the other night for dinner. It
received an immediate promotion to the "Keeper" file! I followed your
advice and reduce the crumbles (I used Yves brand Smart Ground). I did have
to make some variations because I hadn't read the recipe properly before I
went to the supermarket (it would help if I learned to read! :) ) so I had
to substitute an extra can of beans and an extra can of tomatoes for two of
the cans of soup. I adjusted the chili powder for family tastes, and
reduced the amount of water because of the extra liquid my substitutions had
made. No matter, it was delicious that way and will be even better when I
actually follow the recipe! Thanks for a good post.
And, since someone always asks for the recipe when we praise one, here is

D.H. thought that this was great. I thought that it was too meaty and will
reduce the amount of Crumbles next time, to 8 ounces. I bought the
Minestrone at Whole Foods, and the Chili Hot Beans were on sale at my local
grocery at 3/99 cents yesterday, which helped balance the $1.89 for each
can of soup.
