This Slow Cooker Taco Soup is made with ground beef, black beans, and corn, slow-cooked in a spicy broth for a great Tex-Mex flavor.
Slow Cooker Taco Soup
This Slow Cooker Taco Soup recipe was one of my grandma’s favorite easy dinners, and she used to make it all the time. The broth is flavored with ranch dressing and taco mix, and combined with tomatoes, black beans, and corn, so it has a Tex-Mex flavor and, since we make it in the slow cooker, it doesn’t heat the kitchen up. It’s just a bonus that it goes perfectly with a few icy cold margaritas.
