This crock pot made simple taco Soup will save your life... well, not literally. As a working mother of two teenagers and I am working full time, easy cooking is just essential to keep my sanity; so this is how this taco soup came about. It has only three ingredients that were all left over in the pantry . It is the type of taco soup that is light and it did not fail to please my little ones. Enjoy it with crackers and it will lightly satisfy your soup cravings.
Normally, Taco Soup should have corn,beans,celery and all the other ingredients that a Taco soup typically has,but I am in the bind. I do not have any time to go grocery shopping and I am too tired to do so, so I pulled together what is in my fridge and made this Taco Soup today. Exhausted from the busy shift the night before, I listlessly gathered all the Taco Soup ingredients together: the left-over roasted chicken, a can of beans and I threw all the ingredients together in the crock pot; and I had it do its work while I took a nap. When I woke up and when the kids are home,we munch on this Taco Soup that is really tasty and delightful.
