A few years ago before I had my son, I was at work looking at a cookbook in my downtime, and found a yummy sounding recipe for SLOW COOKER TACO SOUP. I showed it to some of the girls I worked with, and it made us so hungry that we decided to have a Chili/Soup potluck that Friday. I decided to make Chicken & Dumplings, and another girl wanted to make the Taco Soup recipe I had found. We analyzed the recipe, and made some adjustments to suit our tastes. She went home, and came in the next day with the finished product.......let's just say that with our combined effort, we proved that two heads are always better than one! YUMMO, thanks Shelly!!!
Slow Cooker Taco Soup:
(From: Angie & Shelly)
1-2lbs ground beef (I normally use about 1 1/2lbs)
1 15oz can chili beans, with liquid
1 15oz can kidney beans, with liquid
1 15oz can whole kernel corn, with liquid
1 8 oz can tomato sauce
1-2 cups water (depending on how thick or thin you like your soup)
1 1/2-2 pkg taco seasoning (Shelly used 2, I normally use 1 1/2)
1 16oz jar salsa
1 can Rotel tomatoes
In a medium skillet, brown the ground beef. Drain; add to slow cooker along with the rest of the ingredients. Mix well, and cook on low for 8 hours. Top with shredded cheese, and serve with Fritos, or Tostidos.
