Taco Soup

another one of our favorites in the slow cooker is Taco Soup!!!  many thanks to The Crockpot Lady to introducing me to this recipe... here's my version!


One lb of ground beef... cooked and drained (I buy bulk and freeze for later use)
One large can of pinto beans (or kidney or black, or a combo)
One large can diced tomatoes (I used crushed this time for the sake of my kids)
One can of diced tomatoes w/ chiles
One bag frozen corn (or 2 cans of corn)
One Ranch Packet
One Taco Seasoning packet (I make my own... want the recipe?)

And cheese and sour cream and tortilla chips for topping! :)

Brown meat, drain and dump in the crockpt

sprinkle season packets on top
drain and rinse beans and add

add the corn and tomatoes

cover and cook on low for 8 hours

Serve up with lots of shredded cheddar cheese, some sour cream and  tortilla chips!!

The joy of this recipe is that it is soo flexible...
want vegetarian? just skip the meat and add more beans
pick whatever beans you have on hand
add spicy tomatoes or plain, diced, or crushed (for less chunky, more smooth)

I love it, and I hope you will, too!!

Linking up with The CSI Project for Slow Cooker week!!


  1. Yum! I've never made Taco Soup before but I love the idea of adding the ranch seasoning mix. I may have to give this one a try soon!

  2. That sounds so good! Definitely going to have to try that one out! :) I linked up Chicken Tacos at the CSI project this week! Stopping by from CSI of course!

  3. This seriously looks divine! And you make it seem so easy! Thanks for linking up to the CSI Project!
