Slow Cooked Taco Chicken Soup

Winter is the perfect time to get out the slow cooker to make some tasty meals that are healthy, hearty and will keep you warm. Below is a delicious soup recipe that I love. You can put it on before you head to work, and you will have a delicious meal waiting for you when you return!
