  • 1 pound lean ground beef salt and pepper

  • 15 ounce can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 cup jarred salsa I used mild
  • 15 ounce can corn drained
  • 3 tablespoons taco seasoning
  • 2 1/2 cups water or low sodium chicken broth I used one 14.5 ounce can chicken broth plus enough water to total 2 ½ cups
  • 12 ounces shell pasta shapes whole grain or white
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the beef and season with salt and pepper. Cook the meat, stirring often, until browned. Transfer beef to slow cooker.
  2. Add the bell pepper, crushed tomatoes, salsa, corn, taco seasoning, and broth or water. Stir.
  3. Cook on low for 5-6 hours or high for 2-3 hours.
  4. Stir in the pasta. Cook on high for 10-20 minutes. Pasta cook time will vary by slow cooker, begin checking for "doneness" at 10 minutes.
