Santa Fe Soup with Cheese
Don’t you just love throwing ingredients into a slow cooker and before you know it you have a meal in a couple of hours!  This Santa Fe Soup with Cheese is super easy and the only thing you have to do is brown the meat before everything goes into the slow cooker.  I recommend serving on top of corn chips but if you want to omit those you can dip tortillas into the soup instead.

  17. Can you substitute cheese for the Velveeta? The recipe sounds amazing.

  18. Curios . . . there’s not a lot of liquid in the recipe ingredients. How does it become soup?

    • Hi Leslie,

      The juices from the undrained cans will help but it will be a little on the creamy side for a soup. I hope you try it out and if you want more liquid just add a little bit of water.

  19. I made this soup last night and my family and I loved it! I also linked to your recipe on my blog: 🙂

  20. This soup is SO good. I usually add a can of green chiles to up the flavor. I went to make it one day and my slow cooker was fried and dead forever so I made it in a regular pot and it wasn’t as good. I’m not sure why but it seems to come out best in the slow cooker. It’s snowing hard today and I’ll be making a pot of this for dinner.
