Recipe for EASY Slow Cooker Turkey (or Ground Beef) Taco Soup

This recipe for slow cooker taco soup has been around forever.  It's actually a recipe/photo update from January 2009.  I've made it about 3 times in the past 3 weeks as per the request of my husband.  I happily oblige to his request because this recipe is soooooo easy...and for me, the easier the better!  The kids love this recipe as well because it's fun to add in the grated cheese and tortilla or corn chips.  This recipe is hard to mess up, so if you're a slow cooking novice you'll want to add this recipe to the menu.
This is an EASY recipe for crockpot taco soup.  Anybody can make this and have success.  #crockpot #recipe #slowcooker #tacosoup

  1. I tried this recipe and loved it!
    When I taste tested it before dinner it was soooo good and I had all these ingredients on hand, so I made another double batch on the stove top and put it in freezer gallon bags to freeze.

    Now I have extra to just heat and eat for a couple more meals later!

    Yum!! And I love that it is made from items I keep in the pantry all the time. So easy!!

    p.s. even picky husband and 16 year old son liked it allot!

  2. we love this soup at our house. we have a recipe that uses shredded chicken instead of the beef. and it also calls for a package of ranch dressing mix, but i only use half a package. thanks for sharing all these recipes!!!! love this blog!

  3. Our family of 4 loved this recipe & would give it 4 stars. (only reason it didn't get 5 is I'm not crazy about chunks of tomato)
