Tasty Taco Soup Recipe

Taco Soup is a very versatile and great stockpile recipe that can easily be made into a vegetarian version. There are two ways to prepare Taco Soup. One is on the stove top or use a slow cooker. Taco soup is very simple and great on those days when you are super busy and no time to make dinner. This almost makes itself. I call it a dump soup, since you simply open a few cans and dump it in a pot and then voila you have a quick and easy meal.




I don’t like to dirty more dishes than I have to. So I will show you how to make this using only the slow cooker or using only one pot on the stove. 


 Taco Soup
Ingredients:



1/2 to Whole Onions
1 Pound Ground Meat

1 Can Stewed Tomatoes
1 Can Beans (I used Black Beans) (Vegetarian add another can of beans)
1 Can Whole Kernel Corn (Or you can use 1 cup of frozen)
1 Package of Taco Seasoning (1/4 cup of taco seasoning, if you make your own)
Salt and pepper to taste


1. Sauté ½ to a whole onion in two table spoons of butter or oil
     Slow Cooker: place on high for 30 – 1hour stirring every 15 min.
     Pot: Saute onions in butter or oil on the stove top in a large pot.

2. Add 1 pound of ground meat to the onions and brown the meat then drain (skip this if Vegetarian)
     Slow Cooker: place on high for 1hour stirring every 15 min.
     Pot: Brown the meat stirring frequently. Then drain.

3. Now open all those cans and dump:


1 Can Stewed Tomatoes
1 Can Beans (I used Black) (Vegetarian add another can of beans)
1 Can Whole Kernel Corn
1 Package of Taco Seasoning (1/4 cup of taco seasoning)
Salt and pepper to taste

4. Heat all the way through
     Slow Cooker: Cook for an additional hour on high or turn on low until ready to serve.

     Pot: Let cook for about 20 min. for the flavors to meld.



Serving suggestions:
Serve over rice or tortilla chips
Top with Sour Cream or Plain Greek Yogurt
Top with shredded cheese
Or you can do all of the above

    1. I got this at Costco a while back. However, I am going to start making my own, so I know what is going into it. Some have MSG and other additives I am trying to eliminate from our diet. I am going to store it back in this container.
