Budget Friendly Turkey Taco soup

Sharing is caring!

We have been making this Budget Friendly Turkey Taco Soup for so many years, I meets my 3 expectations for the perfect family meal.

  1. It’s delicious!
  2. It’s cheap!
  3. It takes 15 minutes to put together!

Any meal that meets all 3 of those expectations definitely makes it in our family cookbook. I forgot to add….it’s HEALTHY too! You can replace the meat with chicken or ground beef, but I have always liked ground turkey. I always buy frozen Turkey Burgers at Costco, and then just thaw them out as needed,  break them up in a skillet for my ground turkey. It’s still raw ground turkey, but it takes less time to thaw and it’s easier to add just what I need. The great thing about this recipe is that you just dump everything in your crock pot, turn it on low and walk away! This recipe feeds my family of 6 for 2 nights and costs me $12 to make! It’s also perfect for Halloween before all the Trick-or Treating!File Aug 13, 8 21 18 AM
