This taco soup was one of my favorite dinners “Little Leopard Mom” would make when I was growing up!
I took the recipe and gave it a slightly spicy kick. (We tend to keep things on the mild side in the Bond household for my little mild Momma!)
This recipe is so easy to make! You simply place ground beef and onions, a few cans of beans, tomatoes and such in a crock-pot and let it cook all day.
The result is simple perfection. It makes the house smell amazing and is so delicious!!
Ingredients (serves 6-8)
- 2 lbs ground beef
- 1 red onion (diced)
- 15 oz can diced tomatoes
- 2 15 oz cans diced tomatoes with jalapeños
- 4 oz can green chilies
- 15 oz can corn
- 15 oz can kidney beans
- 2 15 oz cans pinto beans
- 3 tbsp homemade taco seasoning ↓
Homemade Taco Seasoning
- 1 tbsp chili powder
- 1 tbsp ground cumin
- 1 tbsp onion powder
- 1 tbsp garlic powder
- 1 tbsp paprika
- 1 tbsp oregano
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- 1 tsp cayenne pepper
Begin preparing the soup by chopping the onions and adding them to a hot skillet. Next, add the ground beef and brown.
While the beef is browning add the tomatoes, corn, beans and green chilies to a crock pot. (Note to self, buy automatic can opener!)
Next, prepare the taco seasoning by combining all of the spices in a small bowl.
You will only need about half of the seasoning for this recipe, so place the rest in a small plastic container or plastic baggie and save for your next taco night!
Next, add the ground beef, onions and taco seasoning to the crock pot. Stir to combine.
Cook on high for 4-5 hours or on low for 8-10 hours.
Option(-ally awesome): top with cheddar cheese and sliced avocado.
I made this taco soup last night and shared a couple delicious bowls with my roommate. I then packaged the rest into 4 Ziploc containers for us to eat for lunch this week!
Yeah, I know, you really want to put in your application to be my roommate
This soup will honestly take you 15 minutes in the morning to throw together, cook on low all day, then come home to a house that smells amazing and a soup that tastes just as good as it smells!
