Aunt Lou here.
I love tacos. They are few things that I love better than a good taco. So taco soup seems right up my alley.
However, smells are a tricky thing with a pregnant nose. Suddenly smelling some of my favorite foods makes me lose my appetite in a flash (and sometimes feel sick…blah). As we all know, slow cookers are great at making your entire house smell like the food they are cooking. Normally, this is a wonderful thing, but I was a little nervous. Would the smell of this Slow Cooker Taco Soup be a traitor and make me sick? Nope! Not even close! It was wonderful! The house smell like tacos all day and actually made me hungry! Woohoo! This was a new but welcomed twist!
Making this Slow Cooker Taco Soup was also super easy to throw together. It was as simple as browning hamburger, dumping in the rest of the ingredients and stirring.
I love how all the ingredients cooked together. It is a thick soup that is absolutely dee-licious!
