*Slow Cooker Scrumptiousness* Vegetarian Taco Soup

I've been wanting to try this for ages
I love me some tortilla soup
And I love me some A Year of Slow Cooking
So it had to come up eventually.
This is her recipe
With my twists


And
The only cooking technique you need to know for this recipe
Is how to use a can opener...

*Slow Cooker Scrumptiousness*
Vegetarian Taco Soup

Ingredients
2 cans kindney beans
2 cans pinto beans
2 cans corn
1 large can diced tomatoes
1 can tomatoes and chiles
1 packet taco seasoning 
1 packet ranch dressing seasoning
Optional garnish: Shredded cheese, tortilla chip strips, sour cream, avocado 


I forgot to defrost my chicken and couldn't get it out of the packaging, so this became vegetarian.  You could probably throw a few chicken breasts in the bottom of the pot and shred it at the end if you'd like some meat.  But for now, this one's for you Mrs. D. 

Drain and rinse the beans and toss them in your pot


Throw the seasonings on top. 

Open the cans of corn and tomato and dump both the veggies and their juices in too 


Then stir it all up


Turn your crock pot to low and go craft.
Make this.  Or this.  Or this.
Just come back in 8 - 10 hours (or longer...mine cooked for about 11) and check out the yumminess.


Ladle it into a bowl and top with cheese, avocado and tortilla chips
(and sour cream, which I forgot to pick up at the store)


Deeeelish!

Linking. it. up. Pin It

It's one in the morning, and I should be going to bed, but instead I'm looking at your delicious food and my stomach is grumbling - because, well, there's NOTHING better than ANYTHING with tacos! :D I (surprisingly!) have all the ingredients for this, and will totally be making it in the morning!

  14. I don't like diced tomatoes. Can I use canned tomato sauce or paste with canned green chiles? How much? Also, do you really out juice/water found in corn cans in crockpot too? Please help ASAP as I am making this shortly. Thanks!!

    1. Yes you could probably use chunky tomato sauce with canned green chilis and get a similar effect. Keep it in the same amounts as above. Yes, I used the juice and water in the cans...it may add a little sodium but I think it adds to the flavor too. If you prefer, you can drain them and add 1/2 - 1 cup of water or broth instead!

    1. I'm not sure about calorie count but this should serve about 6 portions.
