  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 can sliced olives
  • 1 14.5 oz can kidney beans
  • 1 14.5 oz can pinto beans
  • 1 14.5 oz hominy don't like hominy? substitute a can of green beans
  • 1 14.5 oz can corn
  • 2 tablespoons canned jalapeños chopped *
  • 1 package taco seasoning
  • 2 14 oz cans fire roasted tomatoes
  • ½ cup water


  • Brown hamburger meat and drain well.
  • Add the chopped onion and taco seasoning packet. Sauté for a couple of minutes. Open all of the cans - do not drain - and dump everything (juice and all!) in with the taco meat.
  • Increase the heat to high and bring everything to a boil, stir well.
  • Reduce heat to low, stirring occasionally. Simmer for one hour covered. Serve with chopped cilantro, sour cream & tortilla chips.


* I like a good amount of spice and use a 4 oz. can of diced jalapeños. To start I'd suggest starting with 2 tablespoons and then adding more jalapeños to top off your soup.
Crock Pot Directions
  • Brown the meat in a sauce pan and drain well.
  • Add it to the slow cooker.
  • Top with the remaining ingredients - stir to combine.
  • Cover & cook on low for 4 hours.
