The first is a Paleo version of Taco Soup. This is literally the easiest soup I have ever made. Just chop up some veggies, brown the ground beef, throw it all into the crock pot with some spices and the heat of that little magic cooking machine does the rest for you.
Most of my recipes are super flexible to accommodate what you have available in your kitchen. In this recipe, for example, you can use any type of salsa you have on hand (or, even better, homemade) or incorporate different vegetables into the soup. This is already chock full of veggies, but you could add some celery, jalapeno peppers, or even some olives into the mix.
