We have had taco soup twice in the past week, and it isn't even because we had leftovers! My kids have begged for it!
This is a super simple recipe that you can simmer all day in the slow cooker if you are going to be away from home or for 20 or so minutes on the stove top if you need it in a hurry.
I have varied the ingredients a little each time I made it. It is very forgiving. Just add what you like, serve over tortilla chips, corn chips, or rice, and top with shredded cheese, sour cream, and whatever else you like.
