Slow Cooker Taco Soup
There are times I am so grateful for my pantry. Having a supply of canned goods, pastas, rice, beans, and even potatoes and onions, means I will always be able to throw together a home cooked meal for the family. This Slow Cooker Taco Soup recipe is one of my pantry favorites!
Slow Cooker Taco Soup couldn't be much easier. All you need to do is toss the ingredients together and cook it. I love busting out my Crock Pot on a hot day and letting it do all the work! No need to turn on the stove (unless you need to brown the meat).
I always have some cooked ground beef or shredded chicken in my freezer, so it's just a dump and push start Taco Soup.
You can use what you have. If you don't have kidney beans, maybe use white beans or garbanzo beans. Don't feel like having meat? Double up on the beans and serve this over rice for a protein packed meal!
The toppings are so versatile for Slow Cooker Taco Soup. I always go all out if I have the stuff. Avocado, cheese, jalapeños, corn tortillas, sour cream, cilantro, or whatever else sounds good or is in the fridge or pantry.
This Taco Soup is a good one to freeze. I use quart sized freezer bags, fill them ¾ of the way full and lay them flat in the freezer. They freeze like that and take up less room!
