Crock Pot Beef Taco Soup

I absolutely love Fall and with Fall comes all those delicious warm soup recipes! This slightly adapted low carb recipe is from Beyer Beware Mother Running on Empty and it is absolutely delicious! I decreased the amount of cream cheese used in the recipe and added plain Greek yogurt which allowed the soup to remain creamy without adding all the fat and calories. I also added Hidden Valley ranch seasoning mix which blended so nicely with the taco seasoning and plain Greek yogurt. I topped it with a little bit of sharp cheddar cheese and some chopped cilantro! It was pretty amazing! This recipe makes 5 large servings plus you can enjoy 2 additional Greens on the side! I had a cup of  mini bell peppers from the air fryer. So yummy! Enjoy!
