Crock Pot Taco Beef Stew

This is a very simple and inexpensive beef stew which I found on We like it in heated flour tortillas with cheese and salsa on top. You could also add sour cream, green onions, black olives, or what have you to them after you fill the tortillas. Ole!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Roll beef pieces in the taco seasoning (I used cubes of round steak and put them in a plastic bag with the taco seasoning and turned it around and around to coat thoroughly).
  2. Place beef in crock pot.
  3. Combine remaining ingredients except beans and cheese and pour over beef cubes.
  4. Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours.
  5. Fifteen minutes before serving, stir in beans (I had previously cooked a bag of dry black beans, which I used rather than canned).
  6. Cover and heat through,.
  7. Top individual servings with cheddar cheese, if desired.

This was pretty good and very easy. We will probably make it again. It seemed to be pretty bland by the end - crockpots just seem to do that though. It was great on some tortillas with sour cream, cheese, and a dash of habenero sauce!

This was very good and very easy! I used about a 3# rump roast cut into cubes. I also added a chopped onion to the mix. I subbed red beans for the kidneys because that's what I had on hand. DH thought it was a bit salty - I personally didn't notice, but might reduce or omit the boullion next time! Thanks!

I enjoyed this dish. I used a Zaar recipe to make the taco seasonings and a 14 oz can of tomato sauce. I served it over mashed potatoes with lots left over for the freezer. These will become a burrito of some kind later. Thanks Linda
