Taco Soup

As soon as the temperature dips my mind turns to bubbling pots of soups, stews and of course homemade chili!...yum! But my favorite  has always  been Taco Soup! There are a lot of different versions, but this one is my favorite. It is easy, you usually have all the ingredients in your pantry and fridge and it goes a long way.

Taco Soup

1 lb. ground beef, browned and drained of any fat.
1 15 oz. can whole kernel corn
1 15 oz. can kidney beans
1 15 oz. can black beans
1 15 oz. can diced tomatoes (I use the spicy ones)
1 package taco seasoning mix
I also use a little chili powder too, because I like mine spicy. But you can omit this if you like yours a little milder.

Once you have browned and drained the ground beef, transfer it to a stock pot or your favorite soup pot. Add all other ingredients. Do Not drain the liquid from the corn or beans. Cook for about 30 minutes to one hour.

Garnish with your favorites. We like sour cream, chopped green onions, shredded cheese and of course you must throw in a few tortilla chips or Fritos.

* I usually double all the ingredients to make a double batch. We really like this soup and tend to eat it till it's gone. Yes we have portion control issues at my house...LOL



  1. I love Taco Soup! I'll have to try mine with a little chili powder next time.

    I have portion control issues too--mostly with ice cream. :)
