Rotel Taco Soup in the Slow Cooker

I must confess, I have really become smitten with my slow cooker this year. I've always liked it, but in the last month we have become besties. 

Here is another super easy and fast slow cooker recipe. Literally, 5 minutes to open these cans and you don't even have to rinse the beans. I would have taken pictures of the soup in bowls, but I had hungry boys to feed, and there are (ahem) no leftovers.


Rotel Taco Soup
From StockPiling Moms blog

1 can Rotel diced tomatoes (original or hot) undrained
1 can black beans, undrained
1 can white beans, undrained
1 can red beans, undrained
1 can corn, undrained
1 packet taco seasoning
1 packet ranch
1 lb ground beef
2 cups water

Toppings - sour cream, cheese, tortilla chips, fire crackers (click here for recipe)

Place tomatoes, cans of beans, corn, ground beef, and both packets into crockpot.
Add two cups water and stir.
Place lid on crockpot and cook on low for 8 hours. 
Serve soup with shredded cheese, sour cream, and tortilla chips. 


  1. Do you brown the hamburger before you put it in the crockpot?

    1. I put raw hamburger in the crockpot and break it up with a spatula one hour before it's ready. If I made it over high heat I would brown the meat first, but so far I've only made it on the low heat crockpot setting. Hope you like it!
