Healthy Crock Pot Taco Soup is loaded with veggies and bold southwest flavors for a hearty meal perfect for the cold weather! It is a vegetarian soup that is low in fat and high in protein. It will fool even the biggest of meat-eaters into thinking it is loaded with beef, but it uses meatless veggie crumbles as a healthier substitute.
I know, I know, you must all be thinking I am crazy at this point, but I promise they aren’t as scary as they sound. I would have never tried them myself, for the fear of the unknown crazy vegetarian product, but I stumbled upon them at dining services once. They ran out of the beef option for the daily special, but still had some of the vegetarian special, so I decided to give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised at how much the texture and flavor tasted just like meat! I made this soup over the weekend and enjoyed it for dinner. I packed up the leftover and put them in the refrigerator to enjoy for lunches at work during the week. My husband has been working his usual late evenings on the farm so I never expected him to give it a try.
