Why this recipe works
If you love SPAM, you have to check out this Easy Slow Cooker SPAM Soup recipe. To make it, all you need is a well-stocked pantry and SPAM!
With cold winter weather here, scary icy roads mean staying home and making due with what’s on hand.
That’s why you should stock up on your favorite canned goods like vegetables and tomatoes to make this easy SPAM soup recipe.
This slow cooker SPAM soup is ideal when you’re too busy to go to the store, but still want to a healthy and delicious meal for your family.
With all that in mind, I’ve created this easy vegetable and SPAM soup recipe using some of my favorite canned goods like diced tomatoes with green chilies and tomatoes, okra and corn.
How to make Easy Slow Cooker SPAM Soup
Slow Cooker Vegetable & SPAM Soup is perfect to get going in the morning just after breakfast.
1. First, open all the cans. This type of can opener makes it easy, especially if you don’t want another counter top appliance.
2. Dice up a can of your favorite flavor of SPAM. (I like SPAM lite.)
3. Line your crockpot with a slow cooker liner for easy clean up.
4. Dump all the ingredients into your crock-pot, cover and turn it on to Low for 8 hours. (Or high for 4 hours if you started this later in the day.)
Come dinner time you have a hearty, healthy SPAM soup waiting for you in your slow cooker.
You can also make this SPAM soup on a gas stovetop or on your grill if the electricity is out during bad weather.
Why we love SPAM for soup recipes
After going to Hawaii a few years back, my husband and I fell in love with SPAM masubi.
It’s the Hawaiian version of a quick snack food. You can buy them at gas stations, golf courses, and the beach snack bar.
It consists of a slice of grilled SPAM on top of a block of sushi rice, which is then wrapped in nori dried seaweed. So good, I swear!
Ever since our trip, we always add SPAM lite to eggs, ramen, stir fry, or gluten free noodles.
The beauty of a well-stocked “cantry”
I find that having a well-stocked “cantry” helps me put more home-cooked meals on the table.
I rely on canned tomatoes, tomato sauce, beans, and canned pumpkin as the basis of so many of my recipes like 7 Can Taco Soup, which can be made in a slow cooker or on the stove top.
I feel good about using canned vegetables and beans. You see, the canning process locks in foods’ freshness, flavor and nutrients at the peak of ripeness right after picking.
Also, according to a University of California, Davis study, many canned fruits and vegetables have the same nutrients as their fresh or frozen counterparts. So you should feel good about using canned foods.
Keep an eye on sales at your local grocery store. Stock up on SPAM and other canned goods for your next batch of Easy Slow Cooker SPAM Soup.
