  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 15 oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 15 oz. can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 14.5 oz. can petite diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1 15.25 oz. can sweet corn, drained
  • 1 10 oz. can green enchilada sauce
  • 2 14 oz. cans chicken broth
  • 1 1 oz. packet taco seasoning
  • 1 6 oz. can tomato paste
  • 2 Tablespoons cornstarch + 2 Tablespoons water


  • Brown and crumble ground beef in a large skillet until thoroughly cooked. Drain grease. Add beef to a large greased crock pot. (I use a 7 quart size crock pot.)
  • Add beans, tomatoes, corn, enchilada sauce, chicken broth, taco seasoning and tomato paste to a large crock pot. Stir to combine. Cover with lid and cook on low heat 3 to 6 hours. (Mine was hot and ready after 3 hours. If you're leaving this in while at work keep it on the warm setting for 8 hours.)
  • Mix together the cornstarch and water to create a slurry. Add to the soup in crock pot and stir.
  • Cover with lid again and let heat for another 30 minutes. (Soup should be thickened at this point.)
  • Serve soup warm with shredded cheese, tortilla strips, sour cream, etc. Enjoy!

  1. After 3 hours in our crockpot the ingredients were almost hot… not cooked. After another hour we poured it into a dutch oven to cook.

    20 – 30 minutes med-low it was turning into soup! But a little bland. Added a bit of salt (hold off on that) and some chopped cilantro right in there. Good. But it needed something more. Added 1/2 packet Sazon Goya which made it incredible (except it now could have done with a bit less of that added salt).

    Served with cheese, sour cream, cilantro, avocado, and grilled corn tortillas. Yummm!

        1. It should only take about 20 minutes to thicken. The amount listed is what I used and thickened fine. You can always try to add more if you’d like 🙂

        2. Same thing happened to me. It wouldn’t thicken up. I added a small can of tomato paste and it thickened up nicely, and tasted great!

        1. Using green instead of red I’m sure will still taste delicious! And you added the cornstarch already? If so, you may just need to add more at the end. No biggie!

  2. Do you know how many calories this is? Trying to reduce my calorie intake and this soup is very fulfilling and I want to stay on track. Thanks!

  3. We loved it! Followed the instructions to a tee and garnished with crushed tortilla chips, sour cream, and sharp cheddar cheese. It was tasty & hit the spot. Definitely a keeper with lots of options.

  4. I cooked this in a regular pot with 1 lb. of hamburger,and using frozen corn. Served over tortillas or cornbread. Delish!

  5. 5 stars
    Had this for dinner tonight was delicious. Made exactly as written with cheese, tortilla chips and sour cream toppings for each person to said it’s a keeper.

      1. I used a 4qt and after everything was added, it was just about an inch from the top rim. 3 qt probably wouldn’t be big enough.

  6. Amazing! Added cilantrO, cumin, garlic Powder, salt and pepper, a half BlOck of velveeta cheese (16 oz), and sauted an onion but did not add the onion until the last 30 min oF cooking in the crockpot. I also used two packets of taco seasoning instead of one- this is a must in my opinion. Will DEFINITELY make this again!
