Contest-Winning Taco Soup Recipe

Publisher Photo
I have to admit that when a good friend gave me this recipe, I wasn't certain I'd like it. But, after one taste, I changed my mind! My husband loves it—especially when the weather's cold. I've also fixed Taco Soup for my parents and in-laws, and taken it to church suppers. We live in a small oil-field town, and have two children, 7 and 5. I grew up on a ranch in the panhandle of our state, though, and even today I find I sure miss the country at times!

"This was fabulous. I left out the Lima beans only because my husband is not a fan. I did throw all in crock pot on high for four hours. I served with pumpkin corn bread from Trader Joes."
