Easy Crockpot Taco Soup

This is adapted from a recipe I found on Recipezaar, a great recipe site. You can just plug in ingredients and see what you get. Most that are interesting end up needing tweaking and adaptation for healthier living. It’s a great place to start, though, especially if you decide at work that you need to make something and don’t have your cookbooks handy. I’m personally very big on recipes that are easy and/or involve the crockpot. This has both.
