Two by Two Taco Soup

Head over here for a Recipe Exchange:

I posted this over at my friend Shea's because she is having a crock pot party! Go visit her and give her your best recipe!

I thought I'd post it here, too:

Two by Two Taco Soup in the crock pot is a Llanos family stand-by! I have a six quart crock pot so I always make a lot. We eat it that night, Nic takes some to work for lunch the next day and I have a whole other dinner to freeze for another night.

2 cans diced tomatoes (I leave the juice)
2 cans black beans (don't forget to rinse these, otherwise your soup turns out a muddy color)
1/2 to 1 whole onion (how much does your family like onion?)
1 to 2lbs of ground beef (I use 2-already browned, with the onion)
2 cans diced green chilies
1 can of corn (you could add two, I'm just not a huge corn eater)
2 packages of taco seasoning
2 cups water
S/P to taste

Adjust for your family. Sometimes I add salsa instead of the chilies or green (and omit the chilies) enchilada sauce or red enchilada sauce instead of 1 cup of water.

We eat it with LOTS of cheese and sour cream and of course, tortilla chips! Now I wish that's what I made tonight....but nope....Tuna casserole over here...with no PEAS!


  1. My recipe is almost the same but I only use 1 of everything (there are 3 of us) & still have leftovers. I use Rotel tomatoes so I don't have to add the chilis separately. I will also substitute 1 can of red beans (rinsed) for 1 can of black beans.

  2. sounds good!! I will def try this! Thanks!

  3. Thanks for posting the recipe! Sounds yummy! I will definitely try this one evening. How fun to have a crockpot party. I'm always looking for new crockpot recipes, so you can always send them my way. :)

  4. Thanks for posting. Sounds delicious.
