First, this easy Taco Soup is simple to make and any time you cook at home, it is better for you.  With 6 grams of fiber, it is important to get enough fiber in your diet. Use ground sirloin because meat ending in a “round” or “loin” is the leanest cut of meat!  Try adding extra veggies like sweet potatoes for extra nutrition or any you have on hand. If you don’t have a crock pot, you can also make this easy Taco Soup recipe on the stove top. Either way, this recipe packs nutrition, protein and is low in fat.  Most importantly, it is the best Taco Soup recipe because it is easy!



Crock Pot Liners Are One Of My Favorite Finds
Reynolds Kitchens Slow Cooker Liners (Regular Size, 6 Count)

 

I was excited to discover slow cooker liners.  At the YMCA, someone stopped me in my exercise class  and told me she started using the liners because of me.  Then, you said how much she loved them. I am always glad to know I help make a difference in cooking. These slow cooker liners make clean up easy and also make it so simple to transfer the food from the slow cooker to the serving dish.  I have been using these liners for years and if you’re not using them you must check them out!

Why Isn’t My Easy Taco Soup Recipe Diabetic?

All my newer cookbooks highlight easy diabetic recipes which is truly the healthiest way to eat.  Actually, this crock pot Taco Soup recipe is a diabetic recipe if it wasn’t so high in sodium.  This delicious, easy Taco soup recipe is high in fiber, protein and low in fat.  The sodium is high so you might try low-sodium taco mix to help reduce the sodium content and look for a lower sodium Ranch dressing mix.  I do always recommend to rinse and drain canned beans which definitely helps lower the sodium with beans.  Who would ever think sodium is an issue but it is.  Be sure to check your labels.

  1. Where are the crockpot directions?
    I only see where it is to be cooked 5-10 minutes with no mention of the crockpot.

  2. In 3 1/2 -6-quart slow cooker, insert plastic liner if desired, and add cooked meat and all ingredients to pot. Cook on LOW 6-8 hours, or until sweet potatoes are tender.
    I don’t see sweet potatoes in ingredients?

  3. The sweet potatoes are optional and I love to add sweet potatoes to everything for the flavor and nutritional boost. Thanks for letting me know and I removed it from the directions. Enjoy the recipe!
