I have a fantastic slow cooker recipe for you today!

This soup turned out wonderful!! It has a little bit of heat, but I served sour cream on the side, and a little of that with each bite was fantastic! If you're not a fan of a little spiciness, you can use the mild can of diced tomatoes rather than the spicy. The veggies were a perfect addition, along with the rice! I love that this soup is meatless, but you could always add some chicken or ground beef and let it cook along with everything else! It's so perfect topped of with a bunch of shredded cheddar. This will be a new fall and winter favorite, especially since most of the ingredients come right from the pantry!

Add this and all ingredients to a 4 quart slow cooker except the cilantro and lime juice. Cook on high for 3-4 hours, or low for 6-8 hours, until rice is tender. Stir in cilantro and lime juice, then serve topped with sour cream and cheddar.
