Taco Soup

Thursday, December 17, 2009
When Andy and I first got married, our church in Ohio gave us a wedding reception (since our actual wedding was in Vermont). One of the coolest gifts was given to us by a woman I still haven't met. She gave us a grocery bag filled with packets of ingredients and recipes to go with them. One of those packets included the ingredients and recipe for this soup. I love it because it is easy to throw in the slow cooker, and it is so good. It quickly became one of our favorites.


1 lb ground beef, browned
1 c water
1 16-oz can kidney beans and liquid
1 16-oz can chili beans and liquid
1 15-oz can corn and liquid
1 8-oz tomato sauce
2 14 1/2-oz cans diced peeled, diced tomatoes
1 4-oz green chilies
1 package taco seasoning mix


Mix ingredients in slow cooker. Simmer 8 hours on low. Serve, topped with crushed corn chips, shredded cheddar cheese, and sour cream. Great served with corn bread.

In South Africa, no taco seasoning packet, so here's the recipe from

1 T dried onion flakes
2 1/2 t chili powder
2 t basil
2 t oregano
2 t parsley
1 t garlic powder
1/2 t cumin

We also don't have canned chili beans, so I just make some kind of dried beans or sub another type of canned with some liquid, and we don't have chopped green chilies in a can so we add one fresh green chili.
