Once you start using the slow cooker to make crockpot soups you’ll find it hard to turn back. Most soups don’t require much work and the crockpot solves that problem even more.

Crockpot taco soup is spiced perfectly with Mexican taco seasonings added with beans, corn diced tomatoes and other great veggies that add a touch of health to the soup.

But for flavor, top the soup off with a little cheese, sour cream or even guacamole and you have yourself a meal.

Making the crockpot taco soup recipe

  1. To start, you’ll need to cook the ground beef on the stove top first. This makes a better flavor when the meat is properly caramelized on the stove top due to the high heat that the slow cooker can not make. You do not need to season the meat, just cook it.
  2. Next, add the cooked meat to the crockpot and add in the beans, corn, Rotel tomatoes, tomato paste, broth, tomato sauce and the taco seasoning packs.
  3. Give everything a good mix then turn on high for 2 hours or low for 4-5 hours. You do want to give the tomato sauce and pastae time to cook because they will have a metallic taste when raw.
  4. When the soup is ready add fresh lime juice to the soup before serving, it makes a difference.
  5. When ready to serve, top the crockpot taco soup with cheddar cheese, cilantro and raw white onion.

Storage and can you freeze leftovers

This soup recipe will be fine in the refrigerator for 3-4 days without any issues. Store it in an air tight container and you’re good.

For freezing, this soup freezes just fine. I like to vacuum seal my leftovers but a freezer safe bag or storage container will work as well.
