Taco Soup (Whole30, Paleo, Slow Cooker)

I love tacos more than any one woman should love tacos. They have always been my favorite food.  Thankfully I can still enjoy all the awesome taco flavors in all kinds of ways and still eat Whole30, Paleo or Paleoish (depending on the month, lol).

I made this soup the other night and it turned out fabulous so I thought it was worth sharing. What I love about this soup is its versatility, you can add pretty much whatever you want to it and it still tastes good. We packed in the veggies on this one and enjoyed it with two kinds of meat.

The best part of this soup is that it is made with bone broth. I’ve been making chicken bone broth for quite some time, but this was my first time making beef bone bone broth. I picked up a frozen package of bones from my favorite local grocery store (WEGMANS!) and threw them into a crockpot for 24 hours. There are tons of bone broth recipes on the web, but I used the one from the Paleo Perfected cookbook by America’s Test Kitchen. This is a GREAT cookbook and I highly recommend it if you want tried and true paleo recipes that you can be sure taste awesome.

I made this soup in about an hour’s time from start to finish and it tasted great. You could also brown the meat and toss the rest into a crock pot and let it simmer on low all day if you prefer to fix it and forget it. I have not tried it in a crock pot so I am not sure how long but I am thinking around 4-5 hours on low would be the max before the veg starts to get too soggy.

This is a great recipe to make for a crowd. If you are having guests who do not eat Paleo, Paleoish or Whole30 you can offer extras that they enjoy like cheese, sour cream, greek yogurt, organic white corn chips and tortillas. My boys aged 1 and 2 both LOVED it so good for all ages 🙂

One last note, I got myself some delicious FlavorGod seasonings for Christmas and I used the garlic lovers spice blend in this recipe. You don’t have to use it to still make it awesome, just sub a few large cloves of garlic and one diced onion to make up the difference. FlavorGod also has a “Taco Tuesday” seasoning blend, I do not have it (YET!) but I intend to soon!
