A delicious and filling soup recipe our family loves! This Easy Taco Soup is loaded with flavor and cooks in the slow cooker all day while you are away.

Loads of hamburger, beans, broth... this soup is made in the slow cooker while you are away and when you come home, a delicious smelling house and supper on the table.
Soup is comforting, warm (anybody else FREEZING today?!?) and very frugal. It also cooks all day in my slow cooker so I don't have any worries come supper time. It is hot and bubbly and ready to eat.
Is taco soup really "quick prep"?
Taco soup is a favorite around here. (As with all things taco.) I dump all the ingredients into the crock pot and walk away. If I already have fried up hamburger in the freezer, than it is really quick and easy. When you have four kids, two in activities, easy is the only way to have it.
The only thing that seems to take maybe 10 minutes is the frying up of the hamburger. If you want, make it up the night before and put it in the fridge so the next morning all you have to do is add the cans and hamburger to the slow cooker. It really speeds up the time to make this soup recipe.
Spicy or not?
This recipe calls for diced tomatoes with chili's. If your family isn't a fan of spice, you can certainly sub the spice out for non-spicy. I also add taco seasoning to the slow cooker. It is not a deal breaker if you don't use it. The soup still has plenty of flavor if you choose not to add the taco seasoning.
Like cheese? Add a cheddar or Colby Jack on top. You can also eat it with tortilla chips or with crackers. Sour cream fans? No problem, put that on as well! Sometimes, we will make white rice (or you could use brown) and put it in the bottom of our bowl. We will then pour the soup on top. Even better. Yes, folks. Taco soup is delightfully good.
Easy Taco Soup Recipe:
To make this recipe, simply add all ingredients into the crock pot. (Cooked hamburger, of course.)
Put the crock pot on low if you are going to cook the soup all day. Put it on high if you need it done in 4-5 hours. Easy as can be. So delicious too!
