Slow Cooker Taco Soup

Recipe by  

"This is a really good soup that tastes just like tacos. In fact, if you omit the tomato juice it makes a good meat for tacos. It can also be prepared in a pot instead of a slow cooker. Serve with shredded cheese and chips if desired. "

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat; cook and stir beef until crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink. Drain and discard any excess grease. Transfer beef to a slow cooker and sprinkle with the taco seasoning mix and ranch dressing mix.
  2. Add the diced tomatoes and green chiles, corn, and black beans, all with their liquid, to the slow cooker. Stir the black olives, onion, bell pepper, and tomato juice into the ground beef mixture. Cook on Low until the vegetables are completely tender, about 5 hours.

This is a very good recipe..a can of RoTel tomatoes gives it some zip..a lady at my church makes this all the time. You can change up the type of beans you use depending on your preference..but black beans or pinto are great!

I made this for dinner one evening and we thought it was delicious. The only thing I change was I didn't add any black olives as I did not have any. Will certainly make it again. Thanks for the great recipe.

The combination of ingredients is delish. However the consistency was a bit off. I added an extra cup of water and a cup of tomato juice.

I thought this was delicious and will continue to make! I followed the recipe exactly with 2 minor exceptions: added a 7oz can of diced green chiles (because i love them) and I used a cup of tomato sauce instead of tomato juice and just filled the tomato sauce can with water. Can't wait to make it during the winter when it isn't 100 degrees outside here in Texas!

I've made this recipe twice already, and it's great! I didn't have tomato juice so I substituted a small jar of medium salsa and a cup of water. I also used a small can of sliced black olives instead of what the recipe called for.

My family enjoyed this recipe. It was easy to make and I will continue to make this. Thank you.

Really tasty! The only reason i gave it four stars was because I added jalepanos and 1 extra can of green chilis plus used only half the olives the recipe called for. Overall, excellent for nachos, tacos or soup! My husband ate this all week long!
