Make Homemade Taco seasoning
This recipe calls for taco seasoning. Did you know you can make your own taco seasoning with the ingredients you already have in your pantry?
It is so much cheaper and better for you than store bought seasoning mixes. We keep a jar of this ready to go for recipes like this.
How to brown ground beef:
For this soup, it is best to brown your ground beef before putting in the crock pot. We like to brown ground beef in a large skillet and add in the chopped onion.
This ensures that the crumbled ground beef and onion are cooked all the way through. Drain meat to remove excess grease and add to a crock pot.
Taco Soup Ingredients:
- Ground Beef
- Homemade Taco Seasoning
- Garlic Salt
- Salt and Pepper
- Frozen Corn
- Black Beans
- Kidney Beans
- Crushed Tomatoes – Tomato Sauce or Diced Tomatoes would work as well.

- Cheddar Cheese

Tips for the best Slow Cooker Taco Soup:
- To reduce sodium, drain and rinse beans.
- We like to double the recipe, to have leftovers. We think it taste better the next day.
- Serve for a holiday party or get-together. Make a taco bar with all the toppings.
- If you don’t like kidney beans or black beans, you can change to pinto beans.

This taco soup is a complete meal. But if you prefer, you can add in a few sides. Here are some of our favorites:
- We have even just kept it really simple and make homemade cornbread.
- You can also try Cheddar Jalapeno Cornbread Recipe for a little extra kick.
- Tortilla Chips and Salsa pair well with this soup.
- Easy Spanish Rice is always a good side.
Can you freeze Taco Soup?
Yes, this soup freezes great. I usually double the recipe so I can reheat for another meal on those busy nights.
Place cooked or uncooked taco soup in a freeze safe container or ziplock freezer bag. It will last in the freezer for about 3 months. Once you are ready to prepare your taco soup, you can place in the crock pot to cook.
We think it taste better the second time around.
How long does Taco Soup last?
As mentioned, we love this soup leftover. It will last about a week in the refrigerator. We place in individual serving container so it is an easy meal to grab and reheat.
This is the perfect soup to take for lunch or to have for a quick dinner. Sometimes my family eats at different times because of our busy weeknights. So to have these easy meals for my family to grab makes it easy for them to get a good meal.
Our family loves Crock Pot Original Taco Soup recipe!
I love taco soup and so does the entire family. This super easy recipe is just thrown together in the crockpot. Even though it is easy, it tastes delicious! It is not too spicy, so even the smallest taste buds will enjoy it.
This taco soup is my go-to soup when I know it is going to be a cold day. This taco soup recipe is so easy to just use what you have. It is also really delicious with ranch dressing mix. We have also used ground turkey instead of ground beef.
If you prefer a little more heat, add a can of green chili or try diced tomatoes with green chili.

Love this! I no longer have my crockpot but have a crockpot express. Do you know how I can adjust for the express?
Thanks and Merry Christmas!
What size can of tomatoes?
This recipe is unclear as to what size can of tomatoes to use (14.5 oz or 28 oz). Also, are the beans to be put in straight from the can or do you drain and rinse them? I’m trying this recipe today and guessing on these parts. Hoping it turns out well.
Soooooo delicious! My husband is addicted to soups and this is one of our favorites. Made a double batch this time! I pretty much get all of my recipes from your site!
Great recipe! Somehow missed the homemade seasonings but going to look back over posting. Thx!
