I finally got around to putting this recipe on Recipezaar! This is our family's favourite recipe. It is very kid friendly (no heat) so feel free to add something to spice it up if you like it spicy. I am posting this mainly so that I can access this recipe on "my shopping list" which is a feature I use here on Recipezaar all the time!
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1 (28 ounce) can white beans, in tomato sauce
- 1 (19 ounce) can kidney beans, drained
- 2 (10 ounce) cans condensed tomato soup
- 1 teaspoon taco seasoning
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 1 cup cheddar cheese
- Brown ground beef, (I like to do a huge batch of ground beef using Tish's recipe#31008 and it works perfectly) place into a Ziploc bag and throw into the freezer.
- The night before serving, defrost overnight.
- (I usually don't, but some people argue that cooking frozen meat in the crock pot is not safe.).
- Throw everything into the crock pot and cook for 3-4 hours on high or 6-7 hours on low.
- Garnish with cheddar cheese and serve.
- I will sometimes serve this on buns as sloppy Joe's.
- **If desired you can make the entire recipe and freeze already made, then heat to serve. This recipe freezes great!**.
If you want your chili to taste like tacos with beans then this is the recipe for you. I won't be making chili with taco seasoning or condensed soup again. On the plus side it is easy to make.
This turned out surprisingly good. I used one can of regular tomato soup, and one Ranchero Tomato soup (all I had). Couldn't find white beans in tomato sauce, so just used regular white beans. Added a little salsa to make up the difference. Will make again!
I've made this a couple of times and it was a really good basic recipe. I usually don't like slow cooker meat recipes, but this is one I will make again. I left out the taco seasoning and used chipotle chili instead. I also added some canned tomatoes for one of the tins of soup. I cooked it on high for 3 hours. Thanks a lot for the recipe.
