Slow Cooker Taco Soup Tips

This Crock Pot taco soup is similar to chili, but it’s not the same thing. The broth in this recipe makes it into a flavorful soup. We love taco night in my house, and this is a fun way to enjoy it in a different form.

Very little chopping is required for this recipe, so it’s simple to put together ahead of time. After browning the beef and briefly sauteing the onion, the rest of the ingredients just get dumped into the slow cooker. I like to cook it on low for 6 hours, but you can shorten this time if you’re in a hurry.

If you’re using frozen corn or any other frozen ingredients, make sure to defrost them before adding them to the slow cooker. This will allow for safe cooking without the risk of food contamination.

Crock Pot taco soup in a bowl
Prep Time:10 minutes
Cook Time:6 hours
Total Time:6 hours 10 minutes


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 onion diced
  • 15 oz can tomatoes
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups corn
  • 4 cups cooked pinto beans
  • 1 tbs taco seasoning or more to taste
  • Optional toppings: cilantro, grated cheese, avocado, sour cream, scallions


  • In a large skillet, brown the ground beef over medium heat. Once the meat is cooked, place it in a slow cooker, but reserve the fat in the skillet.
  • Add the diced onion to the skillet and saute for a few minutes to soften it. Transfer the onion, along with any remaining cooking liquid, into the slow cooker.
  • Add the remaining soup ingredients to the slow cooker (tomatoes, broth, corn, pinto beans, and taco seasoning). Cook the soup on low for 6 hours. If you’re pressed for time, it can be done in the slow cooker in as little as 2 hours, or you can simmer it on the stovetop for an hour. The longer cook time just gives the ingredients more time to mesh.
  • Serve warm with any of the optional toppings.

    I love my crock pot. We also love Mexican food, and eat some version of it ALL the time. This soup would be a crowd pleaser…and perfect for these cold winter days.

    I’ve never thought of making a taco soup in the crock pot before, so I’m so happy I stumbled across this post! Definitely making for sure!!

  6. I love tacos…. so I’m sure I’d absolutely LOVE taco soup! This looks so tasty!

  7. I would love to use this recipe with less prepared ingredients. Suggestions on how this would play out with dry beans that have been soaked overnight? Maybe 2c dried pinto beans, soaked overnight and increase broth? Cooking time would need to be increased but could stay low.. I’ll have to play with this recipe : ) First trying it with fresh ground pork! Sounds delicious!!!

    1. Rebecca, you can definitely play with this recipe. I actually use home-cooked beans that have been cooked ahead of time and frozen into 2 cup portions. Be careful about cooking beans in a slow cooker, though. Several types of beans need to be boiled for at least 10 minutes to cook off toxins they contain.
