Crockpot Taco Soup
Crockpot Taco Soup is loved by all in my house! The boys ask me all the time to make this recipe. It is super easy to make in the slow cooker for the day. This recipe is low in fat and high in fiber so not only does it taste good, it is good for you too! It is only 4 Weight Watchers Points for 1 cup. You could easily use ground turkey, bison or venison for less fat! I like to serve this with homemade garlic bread too!
To freeze simply combine uncooked ground beef, great northern beans, diced tomatoes, black beans, red beans, hidden valley ranch packet, taco seasoning packet into a gallon size Ziploc freezer bag and freeze. When ready to cook thaw in refrigerator overnight. Add to a slow cooker and add 1 can of corn and 2 cups of water and cover. Cook on low for 8 hours.
Be sure that you invest in a good quality slow cooker. Our favorite is this programmable cook and carry 6qt oval slow cooker.
This is a simple dump and go slow cooker recipe. Simply combine all ingredients in Crockpot except Tortilla Chips, Shredded Cheese and Sour Cream. You do not drain the cans so it is so simple. Stir and cover with lid. Cook on low 6-8 hours. Serve with tortilla chips, cheese and sour cream. Crockpot Taco Soup Recipe is a an easy freezer meal the whole family will love. We hope you enjoy this yummy recipes as much as we do!

Made this and everyone loved it!
When you freeze this are you supposed to cook the ground beef or leave it uncooked? Your instructions for freezing says uncooked but I read somewhere else it should be cooked. Thanks!
This is one you freeze the ground beef uncooked AND it can also be frozen after it is cooked (if you have leftovers). Hope this helps!
Crockpot Taco Soup is amazing!
It’s hard to believe this is only 4 points. It’s absolutely delicious!
That’s what I thought too Petra! We love this soup!
I had never heard if taco soup, so I tried this and it amazing, thank you for sharing 🙂
Will be trying this recipe today! I am making some changes (Turkey instead of beef for health benefits) and two small cans of rotel instead of just tomatoes for a little kick! I will let you know how it turns out!
How many servings to make it 4 points?
So anxious to make this! Sounds great 🙂
So do you cook it before freezing or just cook the meat and then freeze everything together?
This could be done either way. I have done both.
Very similar to a recipe that I have.
4 frozen chicken breasts (must be frozen)
Hidden Valley ranch packet
16 oz jar of salsa
Vegetarian baked beans
Low setting for 6-7 hours and then shred the chicken and your ready to eat.
I love that you can just throw in in and forget it. I’m going to try the ground beef for variety.
Is this 4 plus points or regular points?
can this Be doubled? Does the cook time Change?
Yes, it can. No, it wouldn’t change just be sure you use a larger crockpot.
Oh I love tacos or anything taco-based! Always have taco salad on the weekends but now that it’s winter time, I wanted something hot to make. This is perfect!
So the first time I made this, I went to the store to buy ground turkey and for some odd reason I bought ground sausage instead. I didn’t even think about it until I got out everything to start putting it together. So I just said oh well and made it with sausage. I drained and rinsed the sausage really well and it was AMAZING. I brought some to my boss the next day for lunch and she LOVED it and keeps asking me to make more. It was a huge hit with my boyfriend who hates tomatoes and beans as well. He drained all of the broth and ate his with chips and sour cream. This will be a regular in our house. Thanks for the best taco soup recipe ever.
Great idea with sausage!
Freezer version doesn’t list tomatoes…. Add prior to freezing or with corn & water directly in the crockpot??
Add prior to freezing. Thanks for catching that error. Updated it now.
Sounds good! How many servings does this make?
It serves 5 🙂
If using homemade ranch mix and taco seasoning (vs. packets), how much would you use?
Love This!! This recipe has been a family favorite for years now, thanks to you! About 5 minutes before serving I mix in a 1/2 box of COOKED small pasta (Ditalini). It comes out almost like pasta fagioli.
gonna try to make this recipe, but I can’t find anywhere the Hidden Valley ranch packet. What could I use instead? Thanks!
They are in the salad dressing isle. You can also order them online – https://www.amazon.com/Hidden-Valley-Original-Dressing-Seasoning/dp/B000R96EOU/?tag=stockmoms-20
best taco soup ever!!! the only thing i changed was i cooked it on the stove because it was a last minute decision and it was TOTALLY AWESOME AND SOOO EASY!! THANKS SO MUCH!!! will definately make it again!!
Can you cook this for 4 hours on high?
I know you don’t drain the beans and tomatoes when adding directly to the crockpot; however, if you’re making this as a freezer meal first, do you drain them before putting them into a freezer bag?
Do not drain if making a freezer meal.
I wanna do this in my instant pot how would i convert the times?
I love this soup, especially that it’s super easy to make and fits great in a 3-4qt crockpot. Is there possibly Instant Pot instructions? Until I can convince my husband I really do need a small crockpot too I’m left with regular pots and pans and my Instant Pot that I’m still learning to use.
We don’t have any instant pot directions for this one but if you figure it out please let us know. We are still slow cooker girls 🙂
