Crock Pot Taco Soup -great for lunch leftovers!

Made this on Sunday and we will be having it for at least two lunches throughout this week! Great flavor, once again there was something in this Relish recipe that I questioned but I still do it, I have learned it is what makes this dish at this point. The ingredient in question this time, ranch dressing mix, and like the lettuce wraps my daughter LOVED this meal. She ate her whole bowl! FANTASTIC FLAVOR!

1 red onion , chopped
1 packet taco seasoning
1 1-ounce envelope ranch dressing mix

1 15-ounce can black beans, undrained
2 10-ounce cans Rotel tomatoes with chilies, undrained

1/4 cup shredded cheddar or pepper jack
1/4 cup sour cream
1 2.25-ounce can sliced black olives
