Taco Soup

This recipe is so good and so easy. It starts out browning meat and onion in a skillet and the rest is done in the crock pot. You can see there's a lot of variation in the recipe. This is for your preference. You really can't mess this up so experiment with it and have fun!
1 lbs ground beef browned and drained
1/2 onion diced browned in skillet with meat
1 pkg hot taco seasoning package added to meat and onion
(cook and drain meat and onion, pour seasoned packet in and stir; pour cooked/drained meat and onion into a slow cooker)
Add:
1 can of corn drained
1 can diced tomatoes and juice (flavored is fine)
1 can reg size or 2 small cans tomato sauce or paste (not spaghetti sauce)
2 cans beans drained (any kind, I like kidney and pinto)
Add enough water to barely cover everything
Stir and cook in crock pot until heated through
Add pepper, onion powder and/or a small amount of crushed red pepper to taste)
This is easily doubled or tripled, (tripled fed about 30 people if that helps)
Serve with tortilla chips and garnish with sour cream, shredded cheese, olives, chives, etc
