Lentil and Black Bean Taco Soup (crockpot)

crockpot, soup, lentil, taco, tuesday, chicken, easy, 21 day fix, black bean, simple 

Every sick day calls for a hearty soup.

And when momma or grandma isn't able to whisk it over to you, when you don't feel like making the trip to the store, or when you want to create something a little healthier so you don't feel even worse after eating it, you whip up this.

Protein packed, a perfect combination of carbs and protein so it leaves you feeling full, and just the right amount of spice to clear out any congestion and give you a flavor that jumpstarts those non-existent tastebuds!  Plus, fresh chicken tenderloins create a juicy, delicious, flavorful all in one meal.

This is a perfect Taco Tuesday addition to your menu and turned out to be a kid favorite in our house!  They cleaned their bowls and one asked for seconds!  I call that a win on all fronts!

I hope you enjoyed this soup as much as we did!  Please be sure to comment/review below and share with friends!
