Slow Cooker Beefy Nacho Soup

All of the goodness of cheesy nachos packed right into this soup!  Slow cooked to perfection and topped with tortilla chips, this soup will become an instant favorite!slow_cooker_beefy_nacho_soup_

Whenever I hear the word Nacho I think of Nacho Libre.  Nachhhhhhoooooo!  (In my best Jack Black voice.)  Isn’t that movie the best?  We watch it over and over again as a family and it never gets old!   The first time that I saw it, it wasn’t that great to me.  But then the second time it was hilarious, and now it gets funnier every time!

Anyway.  While we are on the subject of Nachos, lets talk about this soup.  Picture your favorite nachos covered in cheese with a little bit of spice.   Now picture a soup that tastes just like your favorite nachos.   This is that soup my friends.

slowcookerbeefynachosoup2Holy cow.  This soup is out of this world good.  Seriously in my top 5 favorite soups of all time.  I originally made it here but people would ask if it could be made in a slow cooker.  Well I had to test it out for myself.  It was just as good and the soup stayed a good consistency while in the slow cooker.   My favorite part is at the end when you pile in the cheese and just let it melt.

I made this on a busy day full of basketball games and other school activities.  It was so easy to put in the slow cooker and stayed warm so that all of my family could eat at different times.  My son said that this is the best soup that he has ever had.   You guys are going to love this one!

    This looks great. In the instructions, it says under step 2, to “add soup” two times…was that just a type-o or is there an ingredient missing? Thanks for the recipe, can’t wait to try it!

  2. So excited about this one! I haven’t tried the original yet, so I’m looking forward to this. Trying it this week

  3. Would there be a replacement for the condensed soup? I really hate to use the condensed soups and haven’t bought any in YEARS! Thanks.

    My kids are extremely picky and don’t like to eat soup. However, I made this recipe last week and all of the kids enjoyed it. I used the cheddar soup since that is all I could find at the store and I left out the diced tomatoes and green chilis since they don’t like those. It was a hit! We dipped our chips in it and they thought it tasted like nachos with meat. I made a double recipe and it served 2 adults and 4 kids.

  9. Kaitlin C Shuler says:

    Is this soup freezer friendly? I am in a meal swap group and thinking about using this recipe.

  10. I made the soup tonight and it was amazing. Only thing I wish is that I didn’t have the condensed soup

  11. It looks like there is some cilantro or another herb sprinkled on top. I can’t find this in the recipe. Which herb is it?
