An Easy Crock Pot Soup Recipe
This taco soup recipe is a family favorite! We make it all the time in the winter, but I also serve it in the summer time when I don’t feel like heating up my house while using my oven. (Crock pot recipes are always welcome in my home!)
I even made this soup for my husband’s family the day before Thanksgiving. I didn’t want to put a bunch of work into a meal that was taking place the day before a huge feast, but there were a ton of us gathered together, and this soup feeds a crowd, so it was the perfect option!
Another thing I love a lot about this recipe is that you can pretty much put whatever the heck you want in it! The basic recipe is below and it is amazing, but feel free to add more seasoning if you’d like it spicy, or add more meat and veggies if you want it chunkier. The options are endless!
How To Make Taco Soup
Brown The Beef – First, you’ll need to throw your ground beef and onions into a skillet and brown the meat over medium heat. Once it’s ready, you’ll drain it and then place the meat mixture into the crock pot.
Compile – Place all of the remaining ingredients, except for the cheese and tortilla chips, into the slow cooker. Stir everything until the ingredients are completely mixed together.
Bring The Heat – You can cook the soup on high for 2-3 hours or on low for 4-6 hours.
Serve – Pour the soup into a bowl and then top with your favorite cheese and some tortilla chips.
Storage & Freezing
In case you didn’t know, you can easily freeze this taco soup recipe. Once the soup has completely cooled, pour it out of the slow cooker and into a freezer-safe container. It can stay fresh for up to 3 months in the freezer. When you’re ready to use it, let it thaw out in the refrigerator over night and then warm it up over the stove until it’s nice and warm.
