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.

  • 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!

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!
