This is a really good soup that tastes just like tacos. In fact, if you omit the tomato juice it makes a good meat for tacos. It can also be prepared in a pot instead of a slow cooker. Serve with shredded cheese and chips if desired.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 (1.25 ounce) package taco seasoning mix
  • 1 (1 ounce) package ranch dressing mix
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes and green chiles, undrained
  • 1 (15.5 ounce) can corn, undrained
  • 1 (15.5 ounce) can black beans, undrained
  • 1 (15 ounce) can sliced black olives
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 cup tomato juice

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat; cook and stir beef until crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink. Drain and discard any excess grease. Transfer beef to a slow cooker and sprinkle with the taco seasoning mix and ranch dressing mix.
  2. 2 Add the diced tomatoes and green chiles, corn, and black beans, all with their liquid, to the slow cooker. Stir the black olives, onion, bell pepper, and tomato juice into the ground beef mixture. Cook on Low until the vegetables are completely tender, about 5 hours.

  1. This recipe was easy and tasty for me a novice cook.
  2. Oh my gosh! This was amazing!I used 1 1/2lbs of very lean natural ground beef, didn't have to drain it! I used 2 freshly diced tomatoes and omitted the chiles because my kids don't like anything hot. I also added a cup of beef broth and went ahead and drained the cans of corn (I - Read more ...
  3. I have been making this soup for years & it is so versatile. I add a can of chili beans to give it a little more zip. I make the soup & we use the leftovers for several days. We use a slotted spoon & make soft tacos one night, the next night we have - Read more ...
  4. The combination of ingredients is delish. However the consistency was a bit off. I added an extra cup of water and a cup of tomato juice.
  5. I thought this was delicious and will continue to make! I followed the recipe exactly with 2 minor exceptions: added a 7oz can of diced green chiles (because i love them) and I used a cup of tomato sauce instead of tomato juice and just filled the tomato sauce can with water.

  6. I've made this recipe twice already, and it's great! I didn't have tomato juice so I substituted a small jar of medium salsa and a cup of water. I also used a small can of sliced black olives instead of what the recipe called for.
  7. I made this for dinner one evening and we thought it was delicious. The only thing I change was I didn't add any black olives as I did not have any. Will certainly make it again. Thanks for the great recipe.
  8. I couldn't find 15.5oz can of sliced ripe olives. I used a 3.8 oz can and it was sufficient. I also put shredded pepper jack cheese over the servings with crushed taco chips. Delish!
  9. This is a very good recipe..a can of RoTel tomatoes gives it some zip..a lady at my church makes this all the time. You can change up the type of beans you use depending on your preference..but black beans or pinto are great!
  10. My family enjoyed this recipe. It was easy to make and I will continue to make this. Thank you.
