Easy Taco Soup

I am always looking for easy recipes to throw together for a quick meal or for lunches to take to work during the week. I found this recipe online, and it is a great recipe for this purpose. I just throw all of the ingredients into my crockpot. They just basically need to be warmed, but I cook it for a few hours to allow all of the ingredients to mesh well together. Give it a try!

An easy taco soup recipe that is ready in 10 minutes and packed with southwest flavor. At less than $1.50 a serving, you can’t beat this healthy, budget meal!
