Crock Pot Lady’s Taco Soup

If you haven’t checked out Stephanie’s web site before, you really must check it out.  Stephanie is know as “The Crock Pot Lady“.  Last year, 2008, Stephanie vowed to use her crock pot to make something in her crock pot every day for 1 year.  I love my crock pot and love this site.  A bonus?  Stephanie makes most things gluten-free because her daughter has Celiac Disease.  Of course I don’t mean it is a bonus that her daughter has Celiac, but that there is really no conversion of her recipes needed.  I have made several recipes from her site over the past year, but my favorite is this Taco Soup.

One reason that this recipe appealed to me is that there are no onions in it.  I could actually make the recipe exactly as stated for once!  WOOHOO!  That is a celebration in and of itself. I made the soup with ground turkey.  That combined with the beans & veggies made this a wonderfully healthy meal.  Low in fat, high in fiber.  I did have to put it in the food processor for the kids because they are not big on tomatoes, though they like ketchup, marinara sauce & chili.  They both liked the soup, though once Hannah found out there was corn in there, she was hesitant to continue to eat.  She likes corn, but by itself.  Definitely a mental issue for her.  I was very pleased with the way this turned out.  I froze over half of it in small portions so I would have some quick meals for nights when we are in a hurry. 

I look forward to trying more of Stephanie’s recipes.  🙂  I especially like some of the dessert ideas.  YUM!

  1. Two things: I’m going to Panera Bread for lunch. So excited to have the GF menu right here on your site.

    Also, I went to the Starbuck’s blog and posted my thoughts about GF items. 🙂

    Thanks for everything,

  2. Oooh…YUM! Enjoy your lunch! I love the black bean soup and the chicken salad. They also have an amazing chai tea latte if you like those. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts on the Starbucks blog. 🙂 I would love more GF options out there, especially something Nationwide.

  3. Hi Kim,

  4. Lisa,

    You are welcome! 🙂 I love her site.

    Have a nice day!


  5. When I mentioned the possiblity of GF items at Starbucks, the girl behind the counter had already heard! Seems like it really might be happening. 🙂


  6. Julie, that is awesome! 🙂 WOOHOOO!! I love starbucks, just had a raspberry mocha this afternoon and Jon had a decaf peppermint mocha!

    How was your lunch at Panera the other day?

  7. Lunch at Panera–well, the manager said she didn’t know they had any GF soups. So, I chickened out and didn’t get any soup. I got a salad, which was delish and a fruit cup. I’m sure it would have been fine, but I stuck with the tried and true.


  8. Your blog is really cool to me and your subject matter is very relevant. I was browsing around and came across something you might find interesting. I was guilty of 3 of them with my sites. “99% of site managers are doing these 5 errors”. You will be suprised how fast they are to fix.
