Taco soup ingredients include ground beef, beans, corn, tomatoes, peppers and of course taco seasoning. Everything simmers together in a rich tomato-beef broth to create a thick and chunky soup that has just the right amount of kick! Top this soup with sour cream, Homemade Salsa or Pico de Gallo and a sprinkle of cheddar for the perfect dinner!
Taco Soup Recipe
This easy Taco Soup Recipe combines two of my favorite things; tacos and soup! Tacos of any kind from Fish Tacos to Chicken Tacos piled high with all of our favorite ingredients are definitely loved by my family.
If you’ve ever visited Spend With Pennies before, you know how much I love soups from Easy Hamburger Soup to simple Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup. I love the ease and simplicity of making soup. There is something so comforting about a warm bowl of healthy goodness on a chilly day and this Taco Soup is no exception!
How to Make Taco Soup
This Taco Soup recipe is made on the stove top and is literally as easy as 1, 2, 3. It’s the perfect weeknight meal because taco soup cooks for 15 minutes so it’s really fast (and a great way to use up leftover taco meat)!
To make Taco Soup on the stove:
- Brown ground beef with onion and drain off extra fat.
- Add remaining taco soup ingredients, bring to a boil then simmer for 15-20 minutes.
- Top it with your choice of taco toppings like sour cream, jalapeños, cheese and crispy tortillas.
To make this into a chicken taco soup you can easily substitute ground chicken (or turkey) for the ground beef and add in a beef bouillon cube and the rest of the recipe stays the same.
What to Serve With Taco Soup?
Taco Soup can be served with a bun or a slice of bread, tortilla chips and cheese or yummy Pull Apart Bread Rolls. If your taco soup is more of an appetizer or the first course for a dinner party, it is perfect served before Chicken Fajitas or Shrimp Fajitas! And don’t forget to include a delicious dessert like Apple Pie Tacos!
Set out a tray of toppings for everyone to garnish their own bowls! Some of my favorite toppings are:
- Green onion
- Sliced Jalapeno
- Fresh tomatoes
- Salsa, Sour Cream and Guacamole
Can You Freeze Taco Soup?
Taco soup will last a few days in the fridge. If you plan to keep it longer than that, this soup freezes perfectly! I love to freeze it in individual portions so I can take one out for lunch or several out for a family meal!
