My kids love taco soup and I love how easy it is to make. All I have to do is add all the ingredients, except for the toppings and sour cream, to the slow cooker before I leave for the day. Then I come home to a delicious dinner. Just swirl in the sour cream just before serving and add the garnishes on top! Enjoy!
