Real Food Taco Soup in the Crock Pot

Real Food Taco Soup in the Crock Pot

Makes 3 quarts

1 lb ground beef or venison

1 large onion diced

1/2 Tbsp chili powder

2 tsp cumin

1 tsp paprika

1/2 tsp cayenne

4 cloves garlic minced

2 cans (15 oz each) pinto beans

1 can (28 oz) fire roasted crushed tomatoes undrained

1 can sweet corn

1 can (4 oz) green chiles

1 Quart homemade chicken stock

2 tsp sea salt

1 tsp pepper

In skillet brown meat, onion and garlic. Add spices and let simmer. Add meat mixture and all remaining ingredients to crock pot. Cook on low 6-8 hours.

Serve topped with cheese, sour cream, green onion, tomatoes or tortilla chips. Rob loves this with tortilla chips and lots of cheddar cheese. So do I! I made this large of a batch with the intention of freezing half of it, but we ended up eating it all before I had a chance to put any in the freezer.

    A perfect soup for colder weather. Very warm, and comforting and those wonderful spices and vegetables in homemade broth would really clear my sinuses right now! 🙂 Great recipe!

      Yes it will definitely clear up your nose. Add a little extra cayenne and you’ll be breathing clearly in no time 🙂

      I just made a batch of this over the weekend. I figured I better hurry and get my soup fix before winter is over 🙂

    I made this soup last night and it was so tasty, a hit with the kids, and super easy! Thank you so much. I shared it today on my FB page so that my readers will enjoy it as well. I got started a little late, so used the stove top instead of the crockpot. I also used leftover Mexican rice for the corn b/c we can’t have corn. Thanks so much for sharing; it will be on our regular rotation! I’m pinning it too.

      Michelle, I’m so glad you liked it. I think it has just the right amound of spiciness for the kids too. Thank you for sharing. One of these days I’ll join the 21st century and get on facebook 🙂

    This does look good, and I like that you added the option of using beef or vinison! Thanks for your compliments and for following. BTW, I am reciprocating. 🙂
