  • Heat up and grease with vegetable oil a frying pan, peel and dice an onion, mix with the ground beef and fry the mixture. Cook until it brown, for about 15 minutes. When the meat is done, drain off the excess fat (it can be used for other dishes) and transfer the meat into the slow cooker.

  • Add the tomatoes, canned ingredients (drain the liquid from them beforehand) and taco spices and simmer in a slow cooker for 6 hours, or if you use a pot, about 1 hour.

  • The soup is ready! Spread it on plates, put a few nacho chips in each bowl and mix with the soup before serving. Add sour cream, cheese, green onions and jalapenos.


  • The dish can be prepared in the form of a puree or more liquid, it all depends on the selected ingredients and the preferences of the cook.

  • Nachos can be purchased at the store or made at home with cornmeal.

  • You can replace the nachos with croutons or rye tortillas

Bon Appetit!
