Slow Cooker Taco Soup



Slow Cooker Taco Soup



When fall arrives, I know it’s time to bring out the slow cooker. The kids are busy with school and sports, so there never seems to be enough time to sit down with the family for a hot meal. Fortunately, my trusty slow cooker (I actually have several) is the perfect solution for those hectic days. I make everything from an amazing gumbo to this wonderful Taco Soup, right in my slow cooker. In fact, I usually put on 2 crock pots at the same time; that way, I have plenty of leftovers and my kids can grab a bowl of soup for an after school snack or as a quick bite before they head off to bed.

Slow Cooker Taco Soup


1 lb ground beef

1 - 15 oz can whole kernel corn, drained

2 cups chicken broth

1 - 4 oz can diced green chili peppers
Optional Garnishes:

Shredded Cheese

How to Make Slow Cooker Taco Soup


The recipe calls for kidney beans and chili beans, but you can easily adjust this soup to suit the preferences of your own family. Skip the meat or double up on the beans, whatever you like. We don’t usually add cheese, but just like a regular taco, this taco soup would be delicious with some grated cheese on top. In my house, our standard toppings include sour cream and onion, with some corn chips served on the side.


Note: You’ll need 3 tablespoons of a taco seasoning mix. While you could certainly buy a store bought mix, our homemade taco mix is perfect for this soup. It has just the right blend of seasonings, and you don’t have to worry about all the added sodium and chemicals that are in many of the manufactured products. Give it a try, I think you’ll love it!
