Crockpot Taco Stoup

I’m stealing Rachael Ray’s term “stoup” – thinner than a stew, thicker than a soup! If you like soup, add more water. If you are Stephen, or are married to Stephen, leave as is. As most soups, tastes even better the next day!

 

2 cans of kidney beans
2 cans of pinto beans
2 cans of corn (I only used 1)
1 large can of diced tomatoes
1 regular can Rotel (I don’t do spicy so I substituted plain diced tomatoes)
1 pkg taco seasoning
1 pkg ranch dressing mix (I’ll repeat: mix! The powder, not the dressing!)
1 lb. ground beef (I used venison)

Brown your meat. Drain the fat. Put the meat in your crockpot. Pour taco and ranch mixes in pot. Mix well. Drain and rinse all 4 cans of beans. Add those to the pot. Add entire cans of corn and tomatoes and Rotel — do not drain! Stir. Cover and cook on low about 8-10 hours. You can cook it on high for 4-5 hours. Serve with some shredded cheddar, a dollop of sour cream, and crushed tortilla chips.
