Slow Cooker Vegetarian Taco Soup

One of my favorite ways to spend my afternoons during the fall season is reinventing timeless comfort food recipes. My way of adding my spin is creating meatless versions, sometimes using meat substitutes to satiate the appetites of the meat eaters in my household; deepening the nutritional value, and taste. The meat eaters in my family are hardly able to detect the difference! Since time is usually of essence during this time of year, I love to simplify my time in the kitchen. Not only do I love to rely on my favorite time-saving kitchen appliance, the slow cooker, but I enjoy creating easy, yet healthy and delicious recipes that vegetarians and meat eaters can enjoy alike. The Vegetarian Taco Soup is omnivore-approved!

Taco Soup Vegetarian

Ingredients

Package of Vegan Crumbles (i.e. Gardein Beefless Ground, Boca Veggie Ground Crumbles, Morningstar Farms Meal Starters Grillers Recipe Crumbles, or make your own faux “ground beef”)
Package of Frozen Corn
Organic Low Sodium Vegetable Broth (32 oz)
Can of Tomato Paste (8 oz)
Can of Stewed or Diced Tomatoes (8 oz)
Package of Taco Shredded Cheese
Can of Black Beans (drained and rinsed)
Can of of Chickpeas Garbanzo Beans (drained and rinsed)
Garnish of Choice (i.e. Oregano, Basil, or Rosemary)
Tortilla Strips (ideal for dipping or place in a bowl before serving the soup)
McCormick Taco with Chipotle & Garlic Skillet Sauce

Directions

Prepare vegan crumbles according to package directions, add an adequate amount of water, and drain well after the crumbles resemble fully-cooked beef, yet keep in mind that this isn’t actually beef. Stir the vegan crumbles and remaining ingredients (excluding the taco shredded cheese) in a 4-quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on high for 4-6 hours or low for 8-10 hours, which is all in a matter of preference, but this recipe is truly worth the wait! Top it off with the shredded cheese and garnish with herbs of your choice. Bette Davis says, “Din din is ready!” No one argues with Bette Davis. 😉

I was selected to participate in the McCormick® Skillet Sauce at Walmart campaign. I was also compensated for my time in crafting this post, but thoughts and opinions are exclusively my own.
