Crock Pot Taco Soup

Slow cooker recipes are SO easy to make and are one of my favorite ways to prepare dinner. They work wonderfully on busy weeknights, especially with this Crock Pot Taco Soup!

I love how I can just throw everything together to cook as I go about my daily errands, appointments, and workload. Then when dinner rolls around it’s ready to go! 

Crock Pot Taco Soup is full of delicious beans, corn, ground beef and wonderful taco seasoning.

You can really dress this soup up with some yummy additions. Tortilla strips, sour cream, shredded cheese, and green onion are just a few delicious options. But keep in mind that the options are pretty much endless, which makes this the perfect meal to feed to anyone!

I like to fill a bunch of bowls with all kinds of different toppings to make the perfect ‘build-your-own’ soup bar.

I’ve done this for fall parties in the past and it’s always a big hit. I just double the recipe to serve a larger crowd. Everyone digs right in by adding all their desired toppings to make it their own favorite soup! Yum.

  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can (15 ounces) pinto beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) petite diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1 can (15.25 ounces) sweet corn, drained
  • 1 can (10 ounces) green enchilada sauce
  • 2 cans (14 ounces, each) chicken broth
  • 1 packet (1 ounce) taco seasoning
  • 1 can (6 ounces) 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 crock pot. Stir to combine.
    Cover with lid and cook on low heat 3 to 6 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!


TO FREEZE: Place cooled soup in two large freezer ziplock bags. Place in freezer. Stays good frozen for up to 3 months. When ready to eat, place frozen soup in crock pot. Cover with lid. Cook on the low setting for 3 to 4 hours or until fully warmed through.
OR to reheat on stove top, place frozen soup in a large pot. Cook over medium heat on stove top until fully heated through.

        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 šŸ™‚

        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!

  1. 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.

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

  3. Very tasty recipe! First time my two picky eating boys actually ate beans. Already have request to make again.

    This soup was fabulous! I had everything on hand in my pantry. the only addition i made was to saute some chopped onion and garlic and add that to the soup. I cooked the soup for approx. 5 hours on low and it was thick enough for us without the cornstarch slurry. Definitely a repeat at our house. Served with some mexican style cornbread and a salad with cilantro dressing. YUM!
