Crock Pot Taco Soup Recipe

The weather has finally started to cool down and the first thing I wanted to do was start using my crock pot.  I didn’t want to do the same ol’ recipe though, so I decided to try a variation on my sister’s Taco Soup. (Thank you Carla)

Normally this would be made in a pot quickly or refrigerated overnight to serve at one of the family gatherings on the next day. Either way, I think both recipes are delicious.
I added some fresh Anaheim chilies to add a little kick in the pants. If you want to make it even better, buy a batch of fresh fire roasted Anaheim chiles or roast them yourself and save for future recipes.
