The other night, we made some really spectacular tacos. I was trying to use up some ground beef we had before it went bad, and I had definitely over-bought. No surprise there.
So even after eating our weight in delicious crunchy tacos, I had a lot of meat left over. I was talking to my friend Amber about it, and she wondered, “How would that be in soup?”
Well, you guys know me. I’m not going to leave a question like that unanswered.
We also had leftover chopped onions, corn, and cheese in the fridge. So the next day, I tossed the leftover taco meat, cans of spicy tomatoes, black beans, and the leftover corn and onions, right into my slow cooker.
With lots of garlic and tomato sauce to make the broth more hearty, the scent wafting through our house all day was downright amazing. And I’m so glad I was able to use up all those leftover ingredients.
It’s so important to me to eliminate as much food waste as we can. We try to cook proportionately, or make things that we’re for sure going to eat as leftovers, like this soup or this chili recipe.
All you need to do is grab some GLAD® containers that are just the right size for either a full family meal, or single servings for lunches. Portion out the leftover soup, allow it cool, and then freeze it for a rainy day.
Literally. This is the BEST soup for a rainy day. You can garnish it any way you like, but we added tortilla strips and sour cream, shredded cheese and a little green onion.
Flavors like that are going to make just about anything amazing, but this Slow Cooker Taco Soup may just be my new favorite meal.
Those GLAD® containers will also keep this soup fresh in the refrigerator for days, if you just want to make-ahead your lunches or dinners for the week. Talk about organized living!
The GLAD® Soup & Salad containers are also perfect for going straight from the fridge to the microwave, to eating, so you don’t even need to dirty extra dishes. And speaking of salad – that would make a great side to this yummy soup.
There are so many ways you can save this Slow Cooker Taco Soup to enjoy later, or in a few hours. Because that might be all the time there is between your first meal and your second. It’s THAT good.
