CrockPot chicken taco soup is warm and comforting and packed with veggies as you serve your family an easy dinner with all the flavors of delicious taco. A simple quick dinner recipe that is ready when you are to serve your family on a busy day.
Making dinner in your CrockPot or any slow cooker not only free up your time in the evening but free up your budget. Making a big batch of soup is budget friendly. You can make dinner for a crowd or save half in the freezer for an instant dinner.
Between the canned and frozen items, you can keep all of the ingredients on hand. Start this recipe on low in the morning or on high when you are making lunch and dinner is waiting for you in the evening.
Why you will love making dinner in your Crockpot once a week.
If you take 20 minutes in the morning after everyone is settled for a day of school or work or while you are making lunch you will not believe how good it feels when you smell at 5:00 dinner cooking knowing all the work is done. You will think as I do, why do I not use my slow cooker/ crockpot more often.

Using your crockpot is a simple budget friendly way to not feed your family fast food. While our family loves fast food, and as a mom, it is so easy to run out and grab dinner, we can not hide from the fact that making fast food a habit will affect the whole family’s health.
Instead, make it a habit to make a slow cooker dinner once a week. You free up your evening without harming your and your family’s health. When dinner time comes it almost feels like someone made dinner for you.
