Made this last night with the following adjustments: browned the beef with the taco seasoning to give it more flavor, used a 10.75 oz. can of tomato soup instead of the 8 oz. can of tomato sauce, added a packet of ranch dressing, only used 1 can of beans, used 1 can of "southwestern style" diced tomatoes (diced tomatoes and jalapenos) and 1 can of regular diced tomatoes, and only added 1 cup of water. It was perfect -- had a great consistency (not too thick, not too runny) and was spicy but not too hot. Definitely add a dollop of sour cream! Delicious!
Best taco soup I've ever made! I made it a day early and took it to an office lunch (oh, was much better the second day), and it got raves. I did make a few small changes to the recipe, but nothing substantive...I browned the ground beef with chopped onion and garlic. I used a can of diced tomatoes that had jalapeno peppers mixed in, instead of a separate can of chili peppers. Omitted the water and added a second can of tomato sauce, and substituted black beans for kidney beans. The final addition...was a tablespoon or so of brown sugar, instead of the corn water. As I said, it got raves, and this is definitely a keeper. Thanks Janeen!
This recipe is a good base but I felt it needed some spicing up. I sauted the onions and about a teaspoon of garlic with the meat. I also added the dressing and the taco seasoning to the meat before adding to the crock pot. I tasted the mix before adding water and felt it was too bland, so I added extra cumin and chili powder and a bottle of Mexican beer rather than water. I think the beer really made a big difference. I also served with cheese, sour cream, onions, and cheddar-jalepeno beer bread. I will probably make this again as it was a good start to the chili.
Five stars because this is very easy really tasty super economical can feed a crowd and makes great leftovers. By the time all the ingredients were added my 4-quart crockpot was completely full. This is a HUGE amount of food! All I had on hand was chicken taco spices but it worked just fine (with a little extra salt & pepper while browning the hamburger). We topped ours with shredded Colby-Jack and lite sour cream and warmed our tortilla chips on a cookie sheet at 350 for 3-4 minutes for extra crunch and flavor. YUM!!
Excellent and Easy! I added a package of Ranch Dip mix as well. Once meat was brown, sprinkled a bit of the taco mix & ranch mix in to flavor the meat some. Left out the corn and didn't miss it. But added a small can of diced jalapeno peppers as well as the green chili peppers (they really have no heat to them!) and it was rather spicy. Might suggest 1/3 to 1/2 can of jalapenos for the tentative! Used black beans also...very good! Cheese, sour cream, and tortilla chips a must have!!
