4 Weeks of Frugal Recipes Day 15…Crock Pot Taco Soup

Crock Pot Taco Soup

If you have never made Taco Soup before you should really give this recipe a try. I have tried many different recipes for taco soup over the last few years and we liked them all fairly well. But this is the recipe I made up for us after experimenting a few times with a few changes of recipes we had tried in the past.

I like crock pot recipes for soup. The long simmer time seems to blend the flavors together so nicely. Not to mention the great smell the house is filled with when you cook in the crock pot. But if you don’t have a crock pot you could  simmer this soup on the stove too.

A batch of this soup costs about $4.12 to make and we get 4 generous dinner servings and 3 lunch sized servings too. So the cost per serving is about $.69
