The weather is definitely beginning to change and there is definite nip in the air. Fall is here now and grilling is most likely a thing of the past for many. Here I am just beginning to break out the old crock pot and my recipes that i have perfected to be tried and true favorites for my family. One such recipe that comes to mind is Mexican Cheesy Taco Chili.

Those who follow me and have read my other recipes know that I am true lover of Mexican cuisine. So it would make sense that my chili recipe would include some aspects of my favored type of food. A few years back I searched for a chili recipe, because my husband loves this dish, but I am not a huge fan of just regular chili.

So, when I came across Taco Chili, my curiosity was piqued. Then, I thought about adding more cheese to this dish and that is when Mexican Cheesy Taco Chili was born. It is a hit in our home, hope you too try it out and enjoy!!

Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 6 hours
Ready in: 6 hours 10 min
Yields: Makes 4-6 Servings

Ingredients

  • 1 Pound Lean Ground Beef
  • 1 15 oz. Can Diced Tomatoes, Del Monte with Zesty Mild Green Chilies
  • 1 15 oz. Can whole Kernel Corn, Undrained
  • 1 1.25 oz. Taco Seasoning Mix, I use McCormick
  • 1 Bag or 8 oz. Shredded Taco Cheese, Sargento Chef Blends
  • 1 15 oz. Can of beans with chili gravy, Goya

Instructions

  1. In a large skillet cook ground beef until meat is brown. Drain off fat.
  2. In your crock pot combine the meat, diced tomatoes, beans with chili gravy, undrained corn, and taco seasoning mix.
  3. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 4 to 6 hours or on high-heat setting for 2 to 3 hours.
  4. When serving you can serve over any rice of your choosing. I put a generous amount of rice first, then sprinkle a bit of cheese on top of the rice. Then put your Taco Chili on top of cheese and rice. Then top it off with sour cream and more cheese. Now you are ready to dig in to your Mexican Cheesy Chili and enjoy!!

      This looks good, and I will be making chili soon now that autumn is here.

      I will have to make a slight variation to this as I am not sure I can buy all the same ingredients here in England.

      Meanwhile, I am adding this to my Recipe Index for HubPages.

      (by the way, we live in a town called Seaford!)

      Shiningirisheyes, all I can say is thank you so much fro that very kind and generous compliment. I guess when I just try to think how I can ge something across to the most amount of people the easiest way. Might be the teacher in me, especially writing lesson plans and teaching kids everyday that makes me think indeed that way. But again thank you so much and also for the votes of 5, so very appreciated :)

      Janine, Sorry for the lateness. This recipe is perfect for this cold weather and I love Cheese tacos with some hot sauce of course. Happy to see so many hubbers following your advice. Even Nell and Kelley. I was wondering if you can improve that menu at Taco Bell, or maybe work at a busy Food Network from Cable TV; You just have the ability to teach and explain things downwith a unique flair. Another winner for sure. Thanks for sharing, and we will do the same. Passing this on!
