Easy Taco Soup Recipe

Hello Friends! Are you loving the new year?

Today’s recipe is a wonderful hot savory soup idea or lunch idea, that is perfect for any day.  This soup incorporates all the flavors of a taco into a warm, soup.

I already have on hand and the amount of clean up is minimal. I also love the way all the flavors come together in a cheesy snack in just minutes too.

Taco Soup Recipe Ingredients

Ground Beef – of course, they are the star of this show. I like to use lean ground beef, but you can use ground turkey as well and it will still come out wonderful. 

Kidney Beans – I always use the generic brand of these because it is much cheaper than supreme brands. These add a southwestern flavor and lots of nutrition too! If you are on weight watchers, kidney beans have zero points, so I love incorporating them in recipes.

Tomatoes – I use pre-chopped canned tomatoes to save time.

Taco Seasoning – Seriously, those taco seasoning packets work for so many great recipes. I stock up on these when they are on sale.

Onion – I love red or white onions for this soup, but yellow onions work out well too!

Tips for this recipe

I like to top each bowl with a bit of sour cream, but avocado, chopped green onions and shredded cheddar cheese also work well.

This soup is nice to serve with buttered tortillas or vegetable quesadillas for a cozy meal.
