Crockpot Burrito Soup

Ahh, I love using my crockpot. Dinner is already to go when you get home or are ready to eat on a busy weekend day. With little to no prep involved you can have a delicious meal anytime. I found this recipe on Elly Says Opa, and once again the recipe didnt disappoint as do all her recipes I have tried have! This recipe is not only delicious but healthy too..I even used turkey meat to make it even healthier.

ENJOY!

Ingredients:
2 tsp. canola oil
1 large onion, diced
1 lb. extra lean ground beef
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 can (8 oz.) tomato sauce
5 cups beef broth
2 Tbsp. aleppo (or any) chili powder)
1 Tbsp. cumin
2 tsp. oregano
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
2/3 cup corn
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup uncooked rice (or, cook rice separately)

Directions:
Heat a large  heavy-bottomed skillet over medium heat and add oil. Cook the onions for a couple minutes before adding the beef. Brown the beef with the onion and drain if necessary. Put  back on the heat and stir in the garlic, just until fragrant.
Pour the beef mixture into the crockpot and then add the tomato sauce, beef broth, spices, corn and black beans. Cook on low for…however long you’re gone.
Increase temp to high and add the rice, just until cooked. Alternatively you can put the cooked rice in bowls and ladle the soup over it. Garnish with your favorite toppings.
