Creamy Taco Soup

Mexican Style Soup

Crock-tober is in full swing!

And to start, I have this delicious Mexican Style Soup recipe. Think of it as, Chicken Tortilla Soup meets Vegetables.

This recipe was made entirely in the crock pot with the exception of browning the chicken and sautéing the vegetables at the beginning. But, you’ll only need one pan!

I’ll be posting a soup or crockpot recipe every week in my Facebook group, and you’ll get some great meal ideas for the coming colder months. If you want to join me in my Free Facebook Group for Crock-tober click here to join or reply to this post with the word, ME!

After Crock-tober, we’ll keep rolling with some fun happenings in November and December, so I hope you’re excited as I am. I hope to see you in the group.
