This is one of our absolute favourite meals in the winter.
It's so good on a cold chilly day.
You can also make it in the slow cooker...or on the stove top in a dutch oven.
You can change the vegetables and beans to suit your family's taste.
It freezes well too.
It can be served with tortilla chips, pita bread, rolls or bread.
It makes a terrific meal for a crowd too....great after a winter skating party or tobogganing.
I served this to my book club...and everyone wanted the recipe.
It's great after Christmas...when everyone is all 'turkeyed' out.Taco Soup
16 oz. can chili beans ( I used can of baked beans instead.)
