Slow Cooker 8-Can Taco Soup

This soup has got to be one of the EASIEST meals I have ever made; yet it was surprisingly delicious! I am always going to keep these ingredients stocked in my pantry for those crazy nights when I need a fast meal.

¬†Even if you don’t have a slow cooker, you could easily prepare it in a large stock pot over medium heat for about 20 minutes.¬†

  1. This looks super easy and tasty! I'll definitely have to add that to my list of things to use. And its very similar to our "trash can soup" slow cooker. Basically....just toss in all your leftovers in the fridge, season, heat and you're done. :-)

    Had the most AWESOME time at the BYBC yesterday and had so much fun meeting you all. Looking forward to many more fun times in the future, have a great Sunday!
  2. My family has made taco soup for years! The original recipe we received has a can of kidney beans instead of black beans. I do one can of each of kidney, black, and pinto beans. I add hominy, but that wasn't in our original recipe. Our recipe also has one packet of ranch dressing mix and one can of creamed corn (in addition to the regular can of corn). We also didn't add cream of chicken soup, enchilada sauce or chicken broth... We just filled a few of our cans from the beans/corn/etc. with water (to get all the juices and leftovers out!) and added that to the pot. We put about a cup of canned storebought salsa in ours, as well as a small can of diced green chiles. Oh yeah, and we used ground beef!
  3. This was my first time making taco soup - and everyone ate it with relish, getting seconds (and thirds) and discussing how good it was. I have decided that I need to stock the ingredients I don't already have (canned chicken, enchilada sauce and taco seasoning (I have the spices that I could mix, but this was so much easier.) This is a winner recipe. Thanks
  4. My 20 year old daughter is a soup nazi. Been eating soups daily since she is about 7 years old. I made this to bring to my job....but she smelled it and wanted some. " OMG!!! Why isnt this for us?!?! " she screamed. Thank you!!! I love easy and cheap!!!

      • MyRecipeMagic says 12 servings, but I am trying to figure out how big a serving is. A half cup? I'm trying to count calories. Also, I added a can of water and made it in a pot on the stove. I had a cup and a half and I'm not sure how many calories. Plus, wouldn't the water mean I had even less? Thanks for your help. I'm very new to trying to be healthy. This recipe was wonderful (my daughter asked if we can have it again tomorrow!), easy and affordable!
        • Hi Miranda. Sorry I don't have the exact measured amount. If you added water that would increase the amount of soup and reduce the calories per serving. My guess would be around 3/4 cup of soup to get 12 servings out of the entire recipe. You would almost have to measure it out. Hope this helps. Good for you on being healthy.

  5. I stumbled upon your site via Pinterest. I prepped my first ever10 freezer crock pot meals-thank you! The recipes are very good, the instructions are clear and the images are spot on. We had the taco chili last week and it was delicious- I posted a picture of it on FB and lots of people messaged me for recipes, so I sent them a link to your site, I can't take credit for something that is not mine. Thanks for sharing your knowledge and ideas.
  6. This was a wonderful meal!! My two year old loved it!! I used 3 frozen chicken breasts instead of the canned chicken and had it on low for 5-6 hours. Shredded the chicken when I got home from work, topped each bowl with shredded cheese, sour cream, and corn chips! Yummy!!!! Left overs for lunch today!!! Will make again!!!
  7. Tried this today...LOVED IT!!!! I added a can of white beans & used red sauce ..didn"t have the green..very similiar soup to my granddaughters white chicken chili recipe..she uses a packet of white chicken chill seasining....I think this would be good served over rice.

    I make something very similar that you may want to try. I brown 1 pound of ground turkey ( you may use ground beef) and onion powder equal to one onion in a large sauce pot. Then I add a packet of mild taco seasoning, a can of corn, a can of beans black or pinto drained, a can of stewed tomatoes, a can of of diced tomatoes, a small can of diced chilies, a small can of tomato sauce and simmer it altogether for about 30 minutes. I serve it with tortilla chips, sour cream, or grated cheese on top.

    I scour Pintrest on a daily basis and I love finding Six Sisters recipes! I have not found any yet that I have not enjoyed. This soup is on the stove right now and smells delicious! My husband comes home late due to his job and I giggle when he says Wow! What did you cook tonight? It smells heavenly. Thank you girls. Sisters in Christ.

    I have made this recipe so many times...and always with rave reviews! My kids love it because it's something they can put together & have the satisfaction of having made dinner for our family of 6!!! And BTW, this recipe is is especially wonderful made in a Dutch oven, on a campfire. We had multiple campsites coming to see what smelled so good!
