Mexican Cheese Soup

Diane Taylor


I wanted to try a different soup using my crock pot. I looked through one of my cookbooks and found this recipe. Luckily, I found the needed ingredients in my kitchen and the rest is history. Everyone loved it and there wasn't anything left. I was told to be sure to make this again. My husband informed me that he loves this dish better than chili. I made cornbread and a salad to complete the meal. This will definitely be a winner in your home. I hope you will enjoy this too!

How to Make Mexican Cheese Soup


  • 1Grease the inside of the Crock-Pot Slow Cooker stoneware.
  • 2Brown the ground beef or ground turkey in small amount of oil. I just sprayed skillet with Pam Spray rather than use any oil. Season your meat according to your preference. When meat is browned, drained the grease.
  • 3Combine the cheese, beef, corn, beans, jalapeno, if desired, tomatoes with chilies and stewed tomatoes in prepared crock-pot.
  • 4Cover: cook on LOW for 4 to 5 hours or on HIGH for 3 hours or until done.
  • 5If you want, you can add some shredded cheddar cheese on top of each individual bowl of soup.
  • 6Serve with corn chips, tortilla chips or cornbread, if desired.
