    Step 1

    Add salt to the pan.

    Step 5

    Add pepper!

    Step 6

    Add ground turkey or ground beef, and cook!

    Spray your crockpot. It helps the food from sticking or burning some!

    Add in your 15oz can of tomatoes and green chilies.

    Step 16

    Open your canned beans

    Step 17

    Add in your 15 oz can of pinto beans. The smallest can I could find was 30oz. I don't mind and like it with the extra beans.

    Step 18

    Open your canned beans

    Step 19

    Rinse your 15 oz can of black beans until the water runs clear. This will be the only beans you drain and rinse.

    Step 20

    Add into the crockpot!

    Step 21

    Stir all the beans and corn together well.

    Step 22

    Keep cooking your meet until no longer pink.

    Step 23

    Add in a packet of ranch dips seasoning.

    Step 24

    Add in the taco seasoning packet.

    Step 25

    Stir well together.

    Step 26

    Take a potato masher and mash the meat to help break it up into smaller pieces better.

    Step 27

    Should look like so!

    Step 28

    Add the meat to the crock pot.

    Step 29

    Stir well together.

    Step 30

    If you want a more broth based soup add some water. I added about a cup.

    Step 31

    Put on the lid! The crock pot with a stirring attachment is awesome. Just make sure to use the silver paddle since it is a meatier dish.

    Step 32

    Set the crock pot on low for 6 hours. Make sure to turn on the auto stir!

    Step 33

    Beep! Beep! Times up!

    Step 34
