Healthy Slow Cooker Taco Soup

This is a super easy recipe with little prep work. It takes about 15-20 mins to prepare and put in a slow cooker, done!

2lbs ground turkey
1 large onion chopped
2 cans pinto beans
2 cans light red kidney beans
1 can mexican-style stewed tomatoes
1 can diced tomatoes with chiles
1-2 small cans diced green chiles
1 can corn (drained) no salt added (optional)
1 can sliced olives (optional)
1 packet ranch seasoning mix
1 packet taco seasoning (lower sodium)

Brown ground turkey in a pan with chopped onions, once fully cooked
Put all ingredients into a slow cooker, do not drain any canned items except for corn and olives if you choose to use them.
Add the seasoning packets and stir all ingredients.
Set the slow cooker on low for about 6 hours

Super easy right? I know how the end of the day gets so busy so for me this is great I can prep in the morning and come home and dinner is ready! This makes a lot of food and its great for leftovers!
