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.

    Yummm. The Wash Post Food section did a story about going to google and typing in whatever you had and what kind of recipes you’d get. I’m going to try this website.
