This taco soup recipe is so quick to put together ... and so delightfully delicious!
I was first introduced to tacos by my daughter-in-love many years ago. Totally non-German, but totally so good.
Since then, my hubby and I enjoy this when we just want a 'nibbly-type' dinner watching some German TV online.
Now, here it is as a soup. In fact, it's one of the easy slow cooker soups ... one I like playing with by adding some of this and some of that. Now, Crockpot Taco Soup is really, really easy to throw together. REALLY!
If you've never had tacos, they are a traditional Mexican dish. There's a tortilla that's folded around a filling made of beef, pork, chicken, or seafood. Add some veggies. Top with shredded cheese. Serve.
Other garnishes can be shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, red or green peppers, diced onions, etc., etc. We like adding sour cream or Greek yogurt and hot salsa.
Well, this taco soup recipe lets you add your favorite toppings when you serve it. Results? A happy family.
In a saucepan, heat oil. Add ground beef, stirring to break up and cook until browned. Add beef to slow cooker.
Add onion and garlic to saucepan and cook until translucent. Add to slow cooker.
Add remaining ingredients to slow cooker. Mix well. Cover.
Cook for 8 hours on LOW or 4 hours on HIGH.
Season with salt and pepper.
Serve with corn chips, Mexican corn bread, sour cream, shredded Cheddar cheese, or other toppings of your choice.
Makes 8 - 10 servings
Like the soup above? You'll love looking at and making more of Oma's soups. All so quick and easy!
What makes these soups so wunderbar? They bring back such wonderful memories of my Mutti's kitchen. So, of course, I had to write my own soup e-cookbook to share with my grandchildren. I know you'll LOVE it, too! There are 84 full-color pages filled with step-by-step instructions and hints. Take a quick peek ...
Sharing these soup recipes from my Mutti and Oma to my own young grandchildren ... that's such a delicious way to pass on our German heritage :)
A bit of this and a bit of that ...
Want to turn this into a Chicken Taco Soup? Just use ground chicken instead of beef. Or ground turkey. Or a combination. You could also use a pound of chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces and browned. Use chicken broth instead of beef broth.
Use any type of beans you like. Instead of the pinto or black beans, use chick peas ... or whatever your favourites are.
Omit or increase the amount of green chill peppers, depending hot spicy you like your soup.
I've teamed up with my own business coach, Renae Christine (yes, do google her!), to bring you this free masterclass. After you watch it, ask me any questions and I'll gladly answer them.
Don't hesitate. I'm not sure how long Renae will keep this free masterclass available.
PS: Yes, Renae really is as amazing as all the reviews say.
PPS: Yes, the course is for handmade items, but I've used it successfully for my cookbooks. I know others are using her methods for services, direct sales ,and even a local ice cream bar & grill that's constantly selling out. You've nothing to lose by taking a look.
