We usually just eat the soup. It's very filling on its own. :)

Thanks for the recipe! It does look super easy. I plan on trying it next week. Do you usually just serve the soup or are their any sides you make?

It's really tasty. :) And super, super easy to fix. Brown the ground beef the night before and refrigerate it and then all you have to do is throw it together in the morning.

Also, I should mention what the substitution was. The original recipe calls for 3 15 oz cans of beans...1 kidney, 1 red, and 1 pinto. Since Aldi doens't sell red beans (only the kidney beans) and the pinto beans only come in a 30 oz can, I used the whole can of Aldi pinto beans and one can of kidney beans instead.

With a small modification, the Crock Pot Taco Soup recipe on SparkRecipes.com can be made with almost all Aldi ingredients! The only thing you'll need from another store is a packet of Ranch Dip seasoning mix, which should cost about 50 cents. Here's the rest of the recipe with a cost breakdown:

Crock Pot Taco Soup
1 lb lean ground beef (use $2.29/lb frozen ground beef; drain and rinse after browning)
1 30 oz can pinto beans (79 cents)
1 15 oz can red kidney beans (45 cents)
1 15 oz can sweet corn (45 cents)
1 15 oz can diced tomatoes (45 cents)
1 packet taco seasoning mix (33 cents)
1 packet ranch dip mix (50 cents at another store; Meijer has a store brand version)

Total cost: about $4.50 for 6 servings

Brown ground beef, drain and rinse fat off with water in colander. Add ground beef to 4.5 qt Crock Pot. Add other canned ingredients to Crock Pot, all UNDRAINED. Add seasoning packet contents and stir until well combined. Cook on low 8-10 hours. Makes 6 servings.

To find the nutritional breakdown, search for this recipe on SparkRecipes.com under the name Crock Pot Taco Soup. :)
