This is an incredibly easy recipe. Start with a large cast-iron pan and add a little olive oil. Brown the ground beef over medium heat until it’s no longer pink. Then break it into crumbles. Mix in the taco seasoning mix and stir again. Add the browned beef and all of the rest of the ingredients into the slow cooker, including all the juice in the cans. Stir it all together and set the crock pot/slow cooker on high for 2 hours. Or if you have the time, low and slow for 4-6 hours is even better!

  • Before adding the beans, drain and rinse them so the soup isn’t overly salty.
  • You can get rid of the ranch seasoning and use reduced-sodium canned beans and tomatoes if you have sodium dietary restrictions.
  • Want some spice? Add 2 – 4 jalapeños!
  • Want a little extra kick? A little cilantro and lime can take this recipe to the next level!
  • Also, it’s best to drain the excess fat from the ground beef. It will improve the flavor a lot!

Your taco soup is going to be tasty!

It takes about 20 minutes of prep time early on, and you can just let it cook while you’re running errands all over town. You can easily freeze the leftovers too!
