The Best Taco Soup
From: My sister Britney (ya know the one who used to do this blog with me? That one!)
Yields: 8-10 servings
Time: 20 minutes hands on and 4-6 hours in the slow cooker
1 pound lean ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
1 packet taco seasoning
1 (28 oz) jar spaghetti sauce (plain; not garlic, four cheese, mushroom, etc)
16 oz salsa
1 (4 oz) can chopped chillies
1 (15 oz) can corn
2 (15 oz) can beans (kidney, chili, or black, or a mixture)
1 (15 oz) can tomato sauce
1 small can olives (optional)
Brown you beef along with the onion in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Once the beef is cooked through and the onion is translucent add the taco seasoning and the water according to packet directions. Mix well.
Add beef and all other ingredients into your slow cooker and mix well. Cook on low for about 4 hours, but you can leave it in there for up to 6 or 7.
Serve with sour cream, cheddar cheese and tortilla chips. Enjoy!
