Original Taco Soup Crockpot Recipe

This is really similar to my Taco Mac recipe except this doesn't have macaroni. I got this recipe from the Crockpot Lady. We had it tonight, and it made a lot. It was very yummy, and I will definitely make it again. I had added a little cheese and stirred it in before I remembered to take the picture. Good news going on here is that we found out that we took Daniel to the allergist and he does not have a milk allergy! Yeah! He does have an egg allergy, a peanut allergy, and a soy allergy. But.... I found out that means he can not have the soy and peanut proteins, so he can have peanut or soybean oil or soy lecithin, so that opens up a WHOLE lot more options for him to eat! We are very excited about that! Unfortunately, he is very allergic to cats and dogs, so we are having to get rid of our 3 dogs. :-( I am very thankful for the food news though!

  1. Hey! I found your website through Tiffany Cunningham. I absolutely loved this recipe. And it lasted a long time for just me and my husband. We have decided to take up cooking instead of eating out for the summer. I'll be frequenting your website! I also tried the rotisserie chicken and that was awesome too. Keep up the good work and thanks for the great website.

  2. Mary, thank you so much! I'm so thrilled that you are trying some of my recipes and even happier you are enjoying them! :-) Thank you so much for your sweet encouragement!
