This is such a winner with simple ingredients and 10 minute prep!  Set it and forget it in your slow cooker and you have a delicious hearty taco soup that is perfect for any occasion.  Popular at potlucks and family gatherings, you may find you will need to double the recipe! 🙂

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • 1 lb. Ground Beef -or- Ground Turkey
  • 1 medium onion (diced)
  • 1 Can Crushed Tomatoes (28 oz.)
  • 1 Can Tomato Sauce (8 oz.)
  • 1 Can Chili (15 oz.)
  • 1 Can Whole Kernel Corn with Liquid
  • 1 Packet Dry Taco Seasoning Mix (I used mild in this as my youngest is not a fan of spicy food yet)
  • Toppings (optional): Fritos Corn Chips, Grated Cheese, Sour Cream, Black Olives and Advocado

HOW TO MAKE IT:

1) Brown meat and onion, drain excess grease.

2) Combine all ingredients together (including cooked meat/onion) in slow cooker, stir well.

 

3) Set slow cooker on LOW.  Let cook until simmering about 3-4hours.  You can even cook overnight on LOW and it is delicious as leftovers.  The longer it simmers the better it tastes! **To cook on stovetop, just simmer for 30 mins~Voila!**

4)  Add favorite toppings and serve! Mmm mmm!

      I read somewhere it’s pretty easy to start a plant indoors with the pit. I’ve never tried it though.

        Ha. Too funny! I have one on the windowsill right now! It’s only been here for a couple of weeks, and it’s supposed to take 3-6 weeks to sprout. So I have yet to see if it works for us.
