  1. I make a very similar version of this where you just dump everything in the crockpot and it’s delish!

    I just don’t get the point of using the crockpot or calling it a ‘crockpot’ recipe, when you have to do stuff in a pan first, to me that defeats the whole purpose of crockpot cooking! But to each his own! Crock on!!

      Hey Holly! By sauteing a few of the ingredients first you get a superior soup. You can totally just toss everything in and call it a day. But it really brings out some of the flavors and gives a better texture to toss it in the skillet for a minute first.

      Have a great day!
