Our family loves enchiladas, but I also love the simplicity of a slow cooker, especially on homeschooling days. I had made some beef stew and had some beef left over, so I thought that I would throw together a new slow cooker recipe using some of the basic ingredients to one of our favorite soups, Taco Soup. It was a success!
Slow Cooker Beef Enchilada Soup
Brown the beef stew meat first using these ingredients:
2 TBs of oil
1 pound of beef stew meat
1 cup of milk
1 cup of flour
1 TBs of Simply Organic Grilling Seasons Steak Seasoning
1 tsp of Real Salt
Place the oil in a sauce pan and heat up, while you mix the seasoning and salt into the flour. Dip the beef stew meat into the milk and then the flour before putting it into the sauce pan. Brown on all side, but don't over cook the meat.
While the meat is browning, place the following ingredients into the slow cooker and mix thoroughly:
1 box of Beef Broth
1 can of tomato soup
1 can of diced tomatoes
1 can of enchilada sauce
1 can of corn
1 can of black beans
Add the browned beef stew meat in to the mixed ingredients and mix in the meat.
Cook on low for 4-6 hours.

This is my family's favorite soup and we eat a lot of soup, so you will want to take notice of this easy recipe! I love it because it is FULL of nutrition and so EASY to make, especially when you use your crockpot or quickly throw it together for a 30 minute meal.
Here is the Deliciously Easy Taco Soup recipe:
2# chicken (I have used raw tenderloins in the crockpot or cooked shredded chicken on the stove)
2 cups of cooked black beans or 1 can
2 cups of frozen corn or 1 can
2 cans of diced tomatoes
1 can of tomato sauce
1 box of chicken broth
1/2 cup of taco seasoning
If doing in a crockpot, add liquid first and mix in the seasoning, then the solid foods. Cook for 4-6 hours on high or 8-10 hours on low. To reiterate, I have only used raw chicken when using the crockpot. Stir it together and cook. Serve warm, with mexican cheese and sour cream! (my family loves it this way, but I do not like sour cream!) I serve chips on the side! Try using Way Better Snacks for a healthy chip!
This is a great recipe to freeze!
