Making Slow Cooker Taco Soup for an easy weeknight dinner.

When a dinner is easy to prepare and good for you, that’s a win-win in my book! I love loading this soup up with S&W Beans because they have the highest standards in the industry. They don’t just look great, but they taste great, too! Frankly, no one does beans better. They have a ton of varieties: red kidney beans, garbanzo beans, black beans, pinto beans, white, beans, and other varieties like less sodium and organic beans, too!

    What a great use of some ready-prepped canned items to make a fresh, delicious and colourful home-cooked meal. Really like the look of the taco soup, not something I’d have thought to use a slow cooker for!

  2. Amy | The Cook Report says:

    Slow cooker recipes are perfect for the colder months when it’s already dark when I get home and I just want to curl up with a bowl of something! This soup looks amazing

  3. It’s amazing what you can do with the slow cooker. Anything Mexican gets a thumbs up from me.
