Slow Cooker Taco Soup

It’s time to raid the spice rack. This recipe calls for a long list of ingredients, including six spices! Add these to your supply list: cayenne pepper, chili powder, paprika, ground cumin, onion powder, and garlic powder. This recipe may pack some seasonings, but that’s not all.. This savory dish also includes: chili beans, chopped onions, black beans, corn kernels, tomato sauce and two cans of tomatoes w/ diced chilies. Add to this mix some cornstarch, ground beef and beer, plus a few optional ingredients (cheddar, sour cream and crushed tortilla chips).

Now, if you’re not a fan of spicy, don’t be scared you won’t require a “fire extinguisher.” This recipe has a mild amount of spice. However, if it’s heat you want, add a little extra for a powerful punch in the tastebuds.

This recipe is pretty versatile, not only can you adjust your heat level, but also your choice of meat. You don’t have to pick ground beef to make Taco Soup. You may want to try chicken or ground turkey for a lower fat option. It’s entirely up to the chef! Either way, this recipe has pretty simple instructions… Put all the ingredients into the slow cooker and cook for 7hrs on low. Keep in mind, if you’re making ground beef or turkey, you should cook it about half way before placing in the slow cooker.

This taco soup will feed about 4-6 people when everything’s said and done. It’s a convenient meal for the person on the go. Plus, it’s enough to feed a small to medium sized family. Take some time for yourself, break out the slow cooker and start cooking.
