Taco Soup





Slow Cooker/Crock Pot Installment #2.... We wanted a hearty and slightly spicy soup this week so I found a Taco Soup recipe, who would have ever thought of a taco in a soup version. All of the items for the soup are things we always have on hand in the pantry and freezer so it really made making this soup very easy. I tossed everything in the slow cooker and set it before I left for work and when I got home it had already switched to warm and kept it just perfect until we were ready to serve it.


1 Can (15 oz) - Nalley Thick Chili
1 Can (15 oz) - Whole Corn, with liquid
1 Can (14.5 oz) - Diced Fire Roasted Tomato, with liquid
1 Can (8 oz) - Tomato Sauce
1 Can (15 oz) - Black Beans, with liquid
1 Packet - Taco Seasonings
1/8 C. - Liquid Smoke
3 Tbs. - Hot Sauce
2 Tbs. - Garlic (chopped)

Combine all ingredients in a greased slow cooker, cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours. Serve with tortilla chips then garnish with grated cheese and sour cream. This will serve 4-6.

p.s. I had the Salmon Patty, it was wonderful as was the pasta! Thanks for sharing!

No, this was a recipe I found in my 101 Things to Do with a Slow Cooker. I used their base recipe then added a few of my own things...like the liquid smoke.

MaryBeth said...

Oops I forgot, I am so glad to hear that you liked the salmon cakes.

I love chili, and I also love spicy food. This looks like a great recipe. It's awesome when people put corn in chili, it makes it so much better. What hot sauce did you use?

I have been on a Mexican food kick lately I know my husband and I would be over the moon with this soup!

MaryBeth said...

Bradley....I used Louisiana Select Certified Cajun Hot Sauce, but I'm sure what ever your favorite brand is will be great.

I love chilli! This taco soup sounds so delish...

Btw, MaryBeth, I also have a dapple dachshund at home named Adele. She is 1 1/2 years and has 2 wonderful puppies - Bella Ellen and Vincent Timothy, that just turned to be 3 months old :)

I was craving Nacho's just last night! - except I didn't feel like crunching on too many chips - this would be a perfect alternative.
