Slow Cooker Taco Soup

Isn't it great when you walk into the door at the end of the day and your house smells like soup?  I love my slow cooker.  This recipe takes about 15 minutes to assemble in the morning and then you can walk out the door and enjoy your day.  When you come home, you're meal is ready.  This soup is just a little spicy and full of wonderful flavors.  I promised my brother-in-law that I would use recipes that take less than 20 minutes to prepare.  So, here ya go.
1 pound ground beef
1 onion, chopped
1 (16 ounce) can chili beans, with liquid
1 (15 ounce) can kidney beans with liquid
1 (15 ounce) can whole kernel corn, with liquid
1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
2 cups water
2 (14.5 ounce) cans peeled and diced tomatoes
1 (4 ounce) can diced green chili peppers
1 (1.25 ounce) package taco seasoning mix

In a medium skillet, cook the ground beef until browned over medium heat. Drain, and set aside.

Place the ground beef, onion, chili beans, kidney beans, corn, tomato sauce, water, diced tomatoes, green chili peppers and taco seasoning mix in a slow cooker. Mix to blend, and cook on low setting for 8 hours.
