Slow Cooker Taco Soup great comfort food recipe

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.

Bonus, we make it in the slow cooker so we can throw all of the ingredients in a Crock Pot in the morning and have a delicious taco soup at the end of the day.
