Everyone loves taco soup. It's easy to make. Substitutions are fine. It's quick and simple. I like mine spicy!!

Use a big pot, and yes you can freeze the leftovers.


  • Must haves
  • 1 pound ground lean beef
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 2 cups water or broth
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • I like it with
  • Diced garlic
  • 1 can each drained, pinto, black and kidney beans
  • 1/2 cup diced green chilies
  • Sautéed bellpepper and onions
  • Sliced black olives
  • Small can Italian tomato paste
  • 1 can stewed or diced tomatoes
  • 1 or 2 packets of ranch dressing powder
  • 1 can of corn, juice and all
  • 1 pound pork sausage
  • 3 splashes of smokey Tabasco
  • Ancho chilies
  • 1 extra packet hot taco seasoning
  • 2 tbspn cumin
  • 1/2 tbsp light brown sugar
  • Garnishes
  • Avocado
  • Guacamole
  • Sour cream
  • Shredded cheese
  • Green onions
  • Shredded lettuce
  • Fresh tomato
  • Cilantro with finely diced red onion
  • Tortilla chips
  • Basically anything you like on a taco is good.


  • Cook the ground beef, drain off fat.
  • Add everything to a large pot and heat to a boil.
  • Turn down and simmer. Cook at least 10 minutes up to 2 hours. Great in the crockpot on low.
  • If its too "soupy" cook longer, not enough - add more liquid. Nothing has to be measured really. Just cook! Keeps a week or so in the fridge. Gets better everyday. Can be frozen, but I freeze it without beans and add them later.
