Teale's Taco Soup

I've made a couple different mexican-themed soups before, including one for Chicken Tortilla Soup that I posted on here. Tonight though, I decided to improvise (must be the theme this week!), and this one did not disappoint! I'm not gonna lie... I had two generous helpings, and enjoyed every bit! This made 8 (1.5 cup) servings & came to about 5 points a serving.

1 pound lean ground beef
4 cups chicken broth
2 cans Rotel (I did one mild & one original flavor)
2 cans black beans
1/2 large onion, diced
1 bag frozen corn
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp minced garlic

1. In a crockpot, combine all ingredients except ground beef & cook on high for 4-5 hours
2. Right before serving, brown ground beef & drain. Season with additional chili powder/garlic powder/cumin/salt/pepper to taste. Add to soup. (You could have done this in the beginning, but I didn't have time when prepping the soup to also brown the meat!)
3. Serve alone or with a sprinkling of shredded cheese!

This was so good & so flavorful, we'll definately be having this again! That's three for three this week!
