Slow Cooker Mexican Beef Soup

This is one of the best crockpot recipes containing beef stew meat. Not only is this type of meat very cheap to buy but it cooks beautifully in crockpot recipes, coming out very tender and succulent. This vegetable beef soup contains popular Mexican ingredients such as corn, kidney beans, tomatoes, cumin, sour cream and more and it is a great soup for lunch or dinner. As well as being one of our more healthy crockpot recipes, this is one of the best crockpot soups.

Perhaps you have made a Mexican beef soup recipe on the stove because most beef soup recipes cook more quickly but using this cut of beef and cooking it slowly makes a huge difference. If you want to use dried beans rather than canned ones, allow for a longer preparation time because these need to soak overnight. Canned beans are much easier. You can use frozen corn if you want to. This will take longer to cook than canned corn because it needs to thaw and then heat up, rather than just heat up, so canned corn kernels are preferable.

If you enjoy making beef soup recipes, you will love the Mexican flavors in this one. Serve it with a dollop of sour cream and perhaps a sprig of fresh cilantro. You can also serve cornbread on the side to make it extra delicious. The ingredients are quite basic for this beef soup recipe and you probably already have most of them in your cupboards. This hearty, delicious soup gets most of its flavor from the meat itself, since slow cooking brings out the juicy flavor.
