While trying to find low-budget uses for ground beef (there are two of us and four pounds of it in our freezer right now!) I stumbled across this recipe and was instantly intrigued. Everyone else suggests chili, goulash, chili, bolognese, chili, CHILI... and that gets so boring. But taco soup I can make without having to buy lettuce for actual tacos! I had to change the tomato sauce for condensed tomato soup since that was what I had on hand, and also used plain pintos instead of chili beans with a tablespoon of my own chili seasoning. No green chilis because we don't like our food too spicy. Put it all into my slow-cooker and let it all sit togethr until it was time to turn on the machine, then let it do all the cooking while I went to work! All in all it came out pretty good, though it could certainly use some tweaking. Next time I'll skip the chili seasoning and just use two packets of taco seasoning instead. My favorite part is the ease of making and cleaning up, and how inexpensive it is to make.
