Crockpot Ground Beef Tortilla Soup (Gluten and Dairy Free)

Jan 15, 2021

As the weather gets colder and snowier here in the Midwest I find I am constantly looking for good soups to help warm up. This ground beef tortilla soup is an awesome one and one of our favorites. It is filled with all the ingredients of a tasty taco and more. My husband is always begging me to make tacos and could eat them daily. As much as I like tacos I find I can’t eat them as often as my husband so I am always looking for ways to satisfy his taco craving. 

I am also always looking for easy crockpot meals that I can whip up during nap time so I can spend more time with my littles in the evenings when they are awake. It is so much easier to cook when all the littles aren’t running around. This one is super easy because after you brown the ground beef, onions, and garlic you just throw everything in the crockpot to cook.

My favorite kitchen hack for reducing time is to cut a bunch of onions up at a time and throw the extras in a bag in the freezer. Then when you need onions for a meal you can save time (and tears) by grabbing some out of the freezer and throwing them in the pan.

I love to serve this soup alongside a good gluten-free biscuit as well as lots of garnishes for the top of the soup. The best part of this soup is that it is toddler-approved…and that is a hard thing to do around our house!
