What’s in taco soup?

  • A pound of beef or turkey
  • beef broth
  • can of corn
  • can of diced tomatoes with green chilies
  • diced tomatoes
  • black beans
  • pinto beans
  • taco seasoning
  • ranch seasoning

After browning the meat in a skillet, you can either add it to a stock pot to cook or a slow cooker. Either way, the outcome is a great tasting soup that you will want to make again and again. I prefer the slow cooker and that’s really because of how easy this soup is. I like the idea of pouring all the ingredients in the slow cooker and walking away for a few hours knowing that I have dinner done. Clean up is a breeze too.

When it’s time to eat, grab a bowl and crush tortilla chips in the bottom of the bowl, ladle soup over the chips and top with sour cream and shredded cheese. Taco in a bowl!

This soup can easily be doubled, just make sure your pot or slow cooker is large enough. Also, it freezes well, if there’s any leftovers.
