Happy Monday my friends! Hope you enjoyed your weekend! We had a chance to pick some apples, it was a bit chilly, but a beautifully sunny day. Happy Anniversary to my wonderful husband! It’s been a great 24 years!

One of our favorite recipes to warm us up during the Fall and Winter is Taco Soup, it’s delicious and super quick…15 minutes on the stovetop using only one pan makes for a quick meal and clean-up.  Or if you like you can add all the ingredients to the Crockpot and let it simmer for a dinner ready when you are.

With a little crumble of tortilla chips, shredded cheese and a spoonful of sour cream to top it off it makes the best tasting meal to chase away the chills.

This recipe makes enough for a hearty dinner and lunch the next day.

  1. This looks delicious. Would love to have you link this up at my new link party called Chef’s Day Off.

  2. I am trying this out right now! =) Live in Sweden and have never heard of “chili beans”, so I just used white beans in tomato sauce (Left out the sugar, since the tomato sause is rather sweet). It smells fantastic! Both my boyfriend and I have a severe cold at the moment so I added some extra chili from my own (balcony)garden and a clove of garlic. I cannot wait until it is done!
