Crock Pot Taco Soup

Even though summer is coming, this soup is good for all seasons! It's so easy, especially in the summer when you don't feel like cooking in a hot kitchen. I didn' t invent this recipe, I have seen several different recipes for this soup, but I like this one the best. It is full of protein.

  • 1 lb ground beef, turkey or chicken. (I used chicken today but usually use turkey)

  • 1 envelope of your favorite taco seasoning

  • 1 envelope of dry ranch seasoning (I used McCormick)

  • 1 teaspoon chili powder

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

  • 2 cans corn, undrained

  • 2 can diced tomatoes, undrained

  • 1 can rotel, undrained

  • 1 can kidney beans, drained

  • 1 can pinto beans, drained

  • 1/2 cup water (optional, if the soup is not liquidy enough for you)

  • sour cream and cheddar cheese for garnish (optional)

Brown meat in a large skillet. Drain fat. Add to crock pot. Add taco seasoning, ranch reasoning, chili powder and cumin to meat and stir. Add the rest of the ingredients (except cheese and sour cream) to the pot. Make sure you ONLY drain the beans, all the other cans go in with the liquid. Stir well. Cook on low for 8-9 hours, on high for about 4-5.
