Taco Soup

We finally have had some cooler weather, and by cool, I mean it might be 45 overnight and 65 during the day.  I'm all for boots, long sleeves, and scarves!  I also took the dropping temperatures as a sign to bring out the crock pot and make soup.  My grandma has a great taco soup recipe that I was dying to make.  Of course, I had to alter it, I can't leave any recipe alone.  My excuse is usually that I don't have all the ingredients and I don't want to make a trip to the store.  So here is my version of Taco Soup.



  • 1 can of chicken broth
  • 1 can of corn
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes with chiles
  • 1 can of tomato sauce
  • 1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 small can of green chiles
  • 1 pkt of taco seasoning
  • 1 pkt of ranch dressing mix
  • 1 can of water
  • a few frozen chicken breasts


Everything went in the crockpot on low for several hours.  Maybe 6 hours.  I took out the chicken, diced it, and dumped it back in.  I switched the pot to warm until we were ready to eat.  I served with sour cream, cheese, and tortilla chips.  It made TONS.  I probably have enough for a week.


Perfect fall food.  It warm, slightly spicy, filling, easy to make, and is enough for several meals.  Thanks Grandma!

its yummy, you might be eating it for two weeks it makes so much! Grandma suggested freezing it, so that might be a good option for you too!
