This slow cooker Taco soup has to be one of my all-time favourite winter recipes. This soup is great because it’s hearty and actually fills you up. Which is rare for a soup. I’d say that this could even be considered a chilli con Carne recipe. It has all of the flavours of chilli but the light feel of a soup. It is also packed with hidden veggies which is great if you have kids.
This soup is ideal for busy people as you can leave in the slow cooker overnight or on the bench while you’re at work.
I like to make this ahead of time and freeze in batches and thaw this out to have this for easy work lunches and quick weeknight dinners.
If you would like a richer flavour it is important to brown the mince and onions prior to slow cooking. This will also make the mince feel crisper rather than soggy.
This makes a large amount of soup. If desired you may freeze portions for later.
