Add the pinto beans, salsa, corn, olives, ranch seasoning mix, taco seasoning and water to the slow cooker with the beef. Stir.
Cook on HIGH for 3-4 hours or LOW for 6-8 hours.
Serve with desired topping and enjoy!
Can I freeze this?Pour the remaining soup into an airtight container (or bag) and place it in your freezer. It will keep for 3+ months (don't forget to add the cook date).Can I make this spicy?To get a spicier soup, choose hot taco seasoning mix, add a can of hot green chiles, and/or add some hot sauce like Cholula.How can I make this healthy?Use a very lean ground beef, 4% fat if you can find it. The toppings actually contain more calories than the soup; skip the high-fat toppings such as cheese, chips, and sour cream and opt for crunchy onions instead.
