Crock Pot Mexican Corn and Bean Soup recipe from Weelicious.comPin

One of the most common complaints I get from moms is that their kids won’t eat their veggies. It can be an extremely frustrating experience, especially for parents who put a great deal of effort into cooking meals that their kids won’t eat. As dorky as it sounds, making mealtime easy and inspiring kids to love eating their veggies are part of my life’s mission.

This Crock Pot Mexican Corn and Bean Soup is a great way to make both of those things happen. It takes less than 15 minutes to put this hearty dish together in the crock pot and it features a rainbow of nutritious veggies your kids are sure to love. 

The soup is incredibly flavorful and while the cumin and chili powder might make you think it’s spicy, the taste is actually quite mellow. I like to put out some grated cheddar or parmesan and a bowl of sour cream for my kids to sprinkle and dollop on top. I find that little touches like those make eating fun and allow little ones to make this soup their own.

  1. I made this last night and served it with shredded rotisserie chicken. My husband and I loved it, but unfortunately my 5 1/2 year olds twins did not…

  2. Hi! I’m making this tomorrow night. I have a diabetic kid that will be eating it. Any chance you could give me a measurement on a serving size? Maybe in ounces? His insulin has to be calculated based on the amount of carbs. I know the recipe says that it feeds 8, but wondered if that was like a 1 cup serving? Ounces? I know it’s a lot to ask so I understand if it’s too much work to figure. Thank you!
