The prep for this is easy and can be down the night before. The "work" part of this meal is chopping the onion and browning the ground turkey. But that's still simple enough, right? Here is the full recipe.
SLOW COOKER TACO SOUP
1 pound turkey, browned and drained of fat
1 can of crushed tomatoes with chilies
8 ounces of sweet corn
1 can of black beans
1 can of kidney beans
1 medium onion
1 taco seasoning packet
Combine all the ingredients in your crock pot, add a cup of water and let cook for 6-8 hours on low, the longer the better.
We topped ours with cheese and Fritos because both make everything better. This dish was a hit with the whole family. It's full of flavor, is simple to prepare and clean-up is a breeze. If you wanted to make this a freezer meal, omit the seasoning and water and add that in once you've thawed your frozen ingredients and placed them in the cooker.
Since my other meals were a bust, I'm on the lookout for soups and chowders to make in the crock pot. I've looked on Pinterest and here are a few that I've found and plan to try over the next month or so.
Don't those sound amazing? I think I'm going to to aim to make one a week, with the option to have leftover for lunch for the Mister and I. Be sure to visit Whitney at Polka-Dotty Place, Kate from Cup of Tea and Whitney at Come Home for Comfort to see what new meals they discovered this month.
