Super Simple Slow Cooker Taco Soup

Have you ever just wanted gooey-cheesy-clog-your-arteries kind of food? Of course you have. Why else would you be here? That’s what I wanted when I walked into the kitchen to make this weeks Soup Kitchen Monday creation. Problem was, between recent travel, and the holiday season, I really should have just been eating celery. When I think of taco soup, I think of a hearty packed chili like soup slathered in cheese and swirled with sour cream and ever though I had seen some recipes for just that, I knew I had to cut it back just a bit.

Today’s story has to be told, to get to tomorrows.

Burgers are one of those great classics where when you have a recipe – and its good – its so hard to deviate and try something new. But with all the other burger recipes out there I realized I had to break my mold and try new things. Chicken, sausage, onions, mushrooms, barbeque, cheeses, stuffed, smoked, and seared… The possibilities are endless and Lord knows, I’ve yet to meet a burger I didn’t love. There’s something about the fresh ground meat cooked to perfection with the combination of bun and other deliciousness (or sometimes naked and cold leftover from yesterday) […]
