Slow Cooker Taco Soup

This was really good and filling. I love that it makes enough for me to freeze the leftovers. This batch will feed my family three times. 🙂 It definitely missed the mark for me. I’ve had good taco soups before and this one was super disappointing. Had with shredded cheese, sour cream, and avocado and still wasn’t great. Bummed because most of these ingredients could’ve been used for an awesome chili.

This slow cooker taco soup with ground beef is so easy — and SO GOOD! It’s perfect for busy weeks with flexible cooking times for any schedule. Serve with tortilla chips, cilantro-lime rice, or cornbread.
I suppose in the winter time I crave soups more than any other time of year. What’s not to love? They are warm and comforting and just beg to be eaten with a bit of bread. This is one of those soups that are fun to make and eat. You can really dress this soup up however you like.
To Make this Recipe You’ll Need the following ingredients:

1 lb. ground beef, Cooked
1 Large Onion, Chopped (Sometimes I cook this along with the beef, and sometimes I leave it out, it just depends on what kind of mood you’re in, really.)
1 Can Pinto Beans
1 Can Kidney Beans
1 Can of Corn (But you can totally leave this out if you hate corn. I am so not a corn lover, but everyone else in my family loves it, so I always leave it in.)
1 Can Ro-Tel (Really any spicy diced tomatoes with chilies will do, but I always just use Ro-Tel, because that is what my mom used to use.)
1 Can Diced Tomatoes. (I usually get a big ‘ol can for this if I am having lots of people, or I just use a smaller can if it’s only the fam.)
1 Packet Taco Seasoning Mix
1 Pack Ranch Dressing Mix. (This is the secret ingredient that gives the soup it’s special zing! Don’t leave this out unless you want blah soup.)
1 1/2 Cups Water


Brown your meat. (This is the part where you can add in the onions or not.)
Open all the cans and dump everything into your crock pot. Juice and all.
Let it sit on high for an hour or two then turn it down to low and you have the best darn crock pot taco soup you’ve ever eaten!
