Crock Pot Chicken Taco Soup Recipe

As our youngest daughter has gotten older she has gotten into more sports which means Mom and Dad get to sit in the stands and cheer while she plays. The problem being is that we are all hungry and tired when we get home, especially on the cold Fall nights.

The solution is our trusty crock pot and this Chicken Taco Soup recipe is at the top of our list for what to make in it. We simply drop it all in after lunch time and let it do its thing all day. When we come home the house smells amazing and dinner is ready!

The First Thing You Must Have is a Crock Pot

crock pot or slow cooker

No busy kitchen is complete without a slow cooker. Whether you get a big one or a small one, the essential thing is that you have one! Ones with lots of options are nice, but I’ve gotten by with the old school one with a dial and three settings for decades.

DIY Taco Seasoning

I really hate overspending on seasonings and the little, ready to go packages of taco seasoning at the store are a rip-off. That being said, I either buy my taco seasoning in bulk, or mix up my own.  The great part about mixing up your own is that you get to adjust it to your own personal style!

Here are links for a few really good taco seasoning mix recipes for you to use when making your Chicken Taco Soup.
