Crock Pot Taco Casserole

As I have said in the past, my family loves a good taco recipe... This was no exception! :) I made this up one morning and threw it in the crock pot so that it was ready for supper and it did not disappoint - it was very hearty and filling! I did make a minor change to the recipe though... I am NOT a big fan of soggy chips and I feel like whenever you add chips to a recipe and then bake them in the middle, they are going to turn out soggy. So, instead of layering the chips inside the casserole I just crushed them up and added them to the top of each serving after the meal was finished cooking. Same great taste, none of the sogginess!
