Camping Recipe

Taco Soup


  • 2 pounds of your choice of meat: smoked beef sausage/kielbasa, ground beef, cooked & shredded chicken breast or pulled pork
  • 1-2 envelopes taco seasoning (use the seasoning you prefer – if you want something with more a spicy kick, go with two packets of seasoning)
  • 1 envelope Ranch dressing seasoning mix
  • 1 ½ cups water
  • 2 cans black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 cans cream corn
  • 2 cans pinto beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (14 ½ oz) diced tomatoes
  • 1 can (10 oz) diced tomatoes with green chilies
  • Additional toppings for serving: sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese, corn chips

Step One: The Meat

  • For smoked beef sausage or kielbasa, sliced it up and set aside.
  • For ground beef, brown it in a skillet and over medium heat, crumbling as you go. Drain and discard the fat.
  • For chicken, either cook it through and shred with a fork or go even easier on yourself and use canned chunk chicken breast.
  • For smoked pulled pork, your great challenge will be to not nibble it all up while you wait.

Step Two: Everything Else

  • Place your prepared meat of choice and all other ingredients together in a slow cooker. Heat on low heat for 4-6 hours. Serve with your choice of toppings and enjoy!


Want some extra zip? You can always add another 4 oz can of green chilies. If you don’t love black beans, swap them for another kind of bean – or add an additional packet of taco seasoning. This recipe is easily modified and hard to screw up!
