This is one of my most popular soup recipes. Everyone who makes it absolutely loves it. If you like thai food, this soup is for you. And who doesn’t love a good slow cooker recipe?
This soup is packed with flavor. If you would prefer it less spicy, cut down on the curry paste. You can control the spiciness of this soup. It’s perfect those cold winter nights. And my goodness it’s been such a cold winter…
