Slow Cooker Taco Soup -Day 5 of 30 Days of Soups, Stews, and Chilis

This is one of those soups that whole family enjoys because it can be customized by toppings.  It’s also a crock pot soup so it makes for an easy dinner.  I even prep my toppings in the morning while the meat is browning and put them in the fridge.  That way, at dinner time, everyone is eating in less than 10 minutes!

crock pot taco soupIt starts with browning some ground beef, then adding onions.  Beyond that you dump in a bunch of canned goods from the pantry and you’re set!

A note – I use my own ranch seasoning in this recipe.  I like the recipe for the dry mix from The Crafty Blog Stalker.  I make my actual ranch dressing from this mix slightly different than her version.  The dry mix, though, is something I’ve now used a couple of years.

I love all things food related! Though I try to eat food that naturally occurs in our world, I occasionally indulge in regular fare with just as much fondness. This website is where I journal my culinary adventures. I am a writer by nature. I write curriculum to feed the teacher in my soul from a former career. I write fiction because I like to escape. And I write about food, because I never get tired of cooking.
