May the Fourth Be With You! Create your own Star Wars Parody songs, like Weird Al Yankovic's "Yoda" or "Hello (from the Dark Side)!"
If you were getting ready to fight the ultimate battle between good and evil, which Star Wars character would you want as your sidekick?
Our friends at the Zen of Slow Cooking shared this recipe for a slow cooker friendly Vegetable Tortilla Soup! It’s easy to make and also budget-friendly, so it’s a perfect addition to any family dinner menu. If you don’t have a slow cooker, directions are included for making this soup in a pressure cooker or on the stovetop.
The original recipe on the Zen site calls for their Southwest Fiesta spice blend. We’ve adapted the recipe below to use pantry ingredients you may already have on hand.
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup (1 small) onion, diced
1 cup (1 small) red bell pepper, diced
1 tablespoon chili powder
2 teaspoons cumin
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon black pepper
