Love this Slow Cooker Easy Taco Soup recipe because I always have the ingredients on hand and it”s so fast to put together. It’s a great recipe when I need to come up with a meal in a pinch. There are several ways I use shortcuts with this recipe.
First I am a stickler about keeping all of the canned ingredients and packets on hand. We have a stocked pantry, and I don’t want to be stuck in the situation where I can’t be making simple meals like this. I also don’t want to be running to the grocery store more then once a week.
Second I love to have the Hamburger prepped ahead of time by cooking 5-10 pounds at once in the slow cooker. Then once it’s ready, drain and divide up into smaller freezer bags. Freeze those bags and just pull them out as needed. I am far less apt to hesitate on making a meal from scratch if I have the hamburger pre cooked.
I used a 6 quart slow cooker to cook the Slow Cooker Easy Taco Soup. This recipe can be halved or doubled, but you’ll need a far larger slow cooker to double it. We had 10 servings just with this recipe alone. So more than enough for our family.
Another great “taco” recipe Frito Taco Casserole!
