Easy Taco Soup
There can’t be a more simple and delicious recipe than this easy taco soup. Keep a pound of ground beef in your freezer, five cans in your pantry and two seasoning packets and you can enjoy this hearty soup any time. It literally goes together in minutes and can be cooked in a variety of ways. If you have a little more time my Cincinnati Chili is another crowd-pleasing recipe. I am super partial to this easy slow cooker chili, but my husband thinks his George’s Chili (named after him) is the best ever.
5 Can Easy Taco Soup Ingredients
Here are the 5 cans. Keep them in your pantry and you are ready to make Taco Soup in minutes.
1 can corn with juice
1 can hominy with juice
1 can diced tomatoes with juice
1 can diced tomatoes and green chilies with juice
1 can Ranch Style beans, undrained
1 pkg Ranch Dressing dip/dressing mix
1 pkg taco seasoning mix
1 pound ground beef, browned and drained
People have asked if other beans like kidney beans or black beans may be substituted. Ranch style beans have a sauce that I think gives this soup extra flavor.
How do you make Taco Soup?
This Taco Soup recipe is made easily in one pot! It is hearty, tasty and full of flavor. Brown the ground beef (or lean ground turkey if you are decreasing saturated fat) in a large pot or dutch oven. Be sure to drain excess fat from the meat. Add in all the remaining ingredients and stir to combine everything and heat. It can be eaten just heated from the stove, left in a crock pot for hours or my personal favorite 10 mins in a pressure cooker. I call it my pressure cooker taco soup! Any way you cook it, it is a winner! Add a dollop of sour cream and some grated cheddar cheese for a super EASY and yummy soup! My kids love to crunch up tortilla chips or corn chips and stir them into the taco soup.
