Cherry tomatoes, cilantro, corn, and kohlrabi take the place of carrots, dill, celery, and zucchini, while the spices here are more reminiscent of Mexican tacos. You can set this soup before bed to be ready for the morning, or set before you leave for work to be ready for when you get home at night. Enjoy it with some tortilla chips and guacamole for a complete meal.

Can I do this in a small Crock-Pot (I think it’s the smallest size)

Looks delicious…but this looks to be Mexican Chicken Soup. Mexicans do speak Spanish but Mexico is not Spain.

After seeing this in the mishpacha, we made and loved this. It’s a winner!
