  • Plan in advance. You cannot let Summer sneak up on you.
  • Lean on your support community.
  • Find other moms to partner with and share responsibilities with. 
  • Look at all of the things available for them to be a part of.

Amy Fenton’s Cream of Taco Soup

Number of Servings: 8 – 10

Preparation Time: 4-6 hours

Ingredients:

1 lb of browned ground beef
1 half-pint of whipping cream (yes, I did say whipping cream)
1 lb Velveeta (I use the mild Mexican) – cube and melt in the microwave
2 cans of chili (no beans)
2 can of chili hot beans (found in the bean section, not the chili section)
1 can of Rotel

Instructions:

Put all ingredients in the Crock-Pot on medium heat for a few hours or low heat if cooking all day, allowing the cream to heat and thicken the mixture. Stir occasionally.

Place in a bowl and put chili cheese Fritos on top. You can top with sour cream, shredded cheese, pico, lettuce, etc . . .

It is even better reheated and it is a Halloween favorite at our house. Makes enough to share with all the neighbors.
