Cinco de Mayo is today!

Normally I would do a round up of recipes on the blog for this, however, we are still building up our Mexican recipes here at the house.

It’s been a very long time since I have shared a slow cooker recipe with all of you hasn’t it?  Well…that’s about to change.

On a side note, how awesome are slow cookers? They have quickly become my preferred appliance in the kitchen (besides our oven/stove).  I seriously cannot think of an easier way to make our weeknight dinners.

The first time I made this Slow Cooker Taco Soup we all went back for seconds! When our family does this, I know the recipe is a winner.

Our daughter described it as a burrito-like meal, except in soup form.  With two types of beans, taco seasoning, ground beef, and diced green chile peppers…I can see where she came up with that thought.

One tip: You don’t have to use ground beef. I have heard this recipe is just as good with shredded, cooked chicken.

Top each bowl of soup with a dollop of sour cream and garnish with shredded cheddar cheese. Or, you can eat it plain. As a side, try eating this soup with tortilla chips or flour tortillas.

This is also a wonderful dish to make if you are pressed for time and have a busy week ahead. Just place all of the ingredients in the slow cooker insert and let it cook all day. It also freezes well so you can freeze any left overs and save them for a rainy day!

This recipe is one of our favorites and we hope it can become one in your family’s as well 🙂

    This looks yummy! But, I only have a little slow cooker. So, I guess just cut the recipe in half?

    1. You could cut in half or you could make the whole recipe on the stove top and freeze when finished.
