Oma's Non German Favs

This taco soup recipe is so quick to put together ... and so delightfully delicious!

I was first introduced to tacos by my daughter-in-love many years ago. Totally non-German, but totally so good. 

Since then, my hubby and I enjoy this when we just want a 'nibbly-type' dinner watching some German TV online.

Now, here it is as a soup. In fact, it's one of the easy slow cooker soups ... one I like playing with by adding some of this and some of that.

Now, Crockpot Taco Soup is really, really easy to throw together. REALLY!

If you've never had tacos, they are a traditional Mexican dish. There's a tortilla that's folded around a filling made of beef, pork, chicken, or seafood. Add some veggies. Top with shredded cheese. Serve. 

Other garnishes can be shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, red or green peppers, diced onions, etc., etc. We like adding sour cream or Greek yogurt and hot salsa.

Well, this taco soup recipe lets you add your favorite toppings when you serve it. Results? A happy family.

A bit of this and a bit of that ...

  • Want to turn this into a Chicken Taco Soup? Just use ground chicken instead of beef. Or ground turkey. Or a combination. You could also use a pound of chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces and browned. Use chicken broth instead of beef broth.
  • Use any type of beans you like. Instead of the pinto or black beans, use chick peas ... or whatever your favourites are.
  • Omit or increase the amount of green chill peppers, depending hot spicy you like your soup.
