There are days when I get so involved with recipe development, photographing and blogging that I almost forget to make dinner! And now that the holiday baking season is in full swing, and my baking list is long, I wanted something that took only a few minutes to throw together and have simmering away in the slow cooker.
And this Creamy Taco Soup is PERFECT! Some of my little ones aren't totally crazy about Chili, but they absolutely DEVOUR this wonderful Creamy Taco Soup!
As fast as it takes to brown a pound of ground beef or turkey, you'll have everything tossed into your slow cooker or crockpot. The tomato soup really creates a creamy base that is just a tad sweeter than traditional spicy chili.
And the cream cheese that melts into the soup? Brilliant! So creamy and not so spicy....perfect for everyone!
I love a meal that allows everyone to "customize" it to their own taste - add shredded cheddar cheese, a scoop of fresh sour cream, chopped green onions, smashed corn chips or taco chips, and a sprinkle of fresh cilantro, and you've got the perfect soup for a cold winter night!
And now that dinner is simmering, I can get busy with my baking! Hope that you enjoy this family-favorite as much as we do!
