Easy Taco Soup Recipe


Need to make dinner in 30 minutes flat? When I’m rushed for time, dinner has to be quick and still be a healthy meal. One of my family favorites is this Easy Taco Soup Recipe. Soup is a miracle dinner – one pot, throw it in, simmer… and finished!

Here’s the recipe-
Easy Taco Soup Ingredients

1 lb ground beef
1 medium onion, diced
1 package taco seasoning or your favorite homemade taco seasoning
3/4 cup water
1 15-0z can black beans
1 15-oz can corn
1 4-oz can diced green chiles
2 cans (15 oz) diced tomatoes
1 15-oz can tomato sauce
dash of Tabasco to taste
1 cup shredded cheese (to garnish)
1 diced avocado (to garnish)
tortilla chips or corn chips


In a large stock pot, brown the ground beef until crumbly. Add onion and cook until translucent. Add taco seasoning and water. Stir until meat is evenly coated. Add in black beans, corn, and chiles. Mix well and allow to simmer for 5 minutes. Do not drain the cans first. Add tomatoes and tomato sauce and simmer for up to 20 minutes to combine flavors. If you like your soup spicy, add a dash of Tabasco and use Hot green chiles. Serve with grated cheese, fresh avocado and tortilla chips. Makes 8-10, 1-cup servings.

Next time your kids are clamoring for dinner and you’ve just now started thinking about the meal, grab some cans from the pantry and ground beef from the freezer and you’ll have supper on the table in no time.
