If you’ve been around here for a while, you know that my family loves Mexican food! Taco Tuesday often turns into Burrito Thursday or Enchilada Saturday because everyone enjoys eating tex-mex style, or at least can make a meal of chips & salsa!
This easy taco soup is perfect to toss in the Crock-Pot and then arrive home to after a busy day. It’s simple to double and freeze the extra batch or pass it on to a friend or neighbor.
Easy Taco Soup
The simplicity of this recipe makes me almost feel bad calling it cooking…it’s seriously emptying things into a crockpot and then spooning into a bowl to eat. But it’s so delicious, you’ll thank me for sharing it, trust me, friends, it’s perfect to serve to guests or family, it’ll be our little secret about the lack of cooking skills required.
I didn’t photograph all the steps because I’m running on the assumption that opening cans and slicing cheese isn’t a huge chore you’d need visuals for, m’kay? so without further adieu, here ya’ go:
- 2 lbs. browned ground beef or turkey
- 3 cans of drained beans(I use black bc they're our fave, pinto works, too)
- 3 cans of Ro*Tel
- 2 cans of corn(drained)
- 2.5 T Taco Seasoning
- 1.5 tsp. cumin
- ½ tsp. red pepper flakes
- 64 oz Velveeta, diced into cubes
- Sour cream, chips, fresh diced tomato, cilantro
- Place everything in the crockpot except the Velveeta, stir to combine, then add Velveeta. Cook on low for 5-6 hours. Serve and top with your family's favorites. We prefer corn chips vs. tortilla chips on our because they mix in so well.
Yes, there’s Velveeta involved….don’t freak out, it’s not like ya’ eat it everyday. If you stick regular cheese in there, it comes out weird, don’t risk it. This soup is pretty much a taco in a bowl and very thick. If you prefer a more soupy consistency, don’t drain the beans or corn, add water until it’s the thinness you desire.
That’s it, delicious goodness is on it’s way to your table but be warned, people love this soup, you’ll be bringing it to every potluck and gathering forever!
