  • Author: Karen
  • Cook Time: 2-3 hours on low, 30 minutes in the oven
  • Total Time: 6 minute
  • Yield: 4-6 servings 1x


  • 1 lb ground beef or ground turkey
  • 2 Tbsp taco seasoning (I use homemade)
  • 1 (13.75 oz) can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 (10.5 oz) can rotel tomatoes (diced tomatoes with green chiles)
  • 1 (14 oz) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese (I used sharp cheddar and mozzarella)
  • Toppings: tortilla chips, sour cream, cilantro, avocado


  1. In a large skillet brown the ground beef and add in the taco seasoning. When the meat is well browned add in the cream of chicken soup, rotel, black beans and frozen corn. Stir together. Pour all into the bottom of your slow cooker.  Sprinkle with the cheese.
  2. Cover and cook on LOW for 2-3 hours.*
  3. In serving bowls, put a handful of crunched up tortilla chips. Top the chips with a scoop of the casserole. Top with sour cream, cilantro and avocado, if desired

*This recipe can also be made in the oven. Use a 9×13 pan and bake at 350 for about 30 minutes.


Ideal slow cooker size: 3-4 quart

To make gluten free: Substitute cream of chicken soup out with a can for a GF container of soup OR try this homemade recipe that equals the same as a can: 3/4 cup gluten-free chicken stock, 3/4 cup whole milk, 3 TBS.  cornstarch. Check taco seasoning to be sure it does not contain wheat.
