Looking for a quick and easy soup recipe that is bursting with flavor? Then you have to make this Taco Soup! The best part about this soup recipe is that it’s ready in about 30 minutes. Warm up to a big bowl of it for dinner, meal prep it for lunch that week or freeze it for a quick and easy freezer recipe. It’s loaded with ground beef, onion, corn, peppers, beans, tomatoes and seasonings. I love that it’s a healthy recipe too! Personally, I love topping it with cheese, salsa or sour cream!
Oh my gosh, we had the busiest day, you know what I’m talking about right? It has literally been SO CRAZY. Then got home, and everyone is tired… and cranky… and hungry!
We’ve all been there, right? I mean I love my recipe for Slow Cooker King Ranch Chicken Soup but what happens if you don’t plan ahead? Should I make Pressure Cooker Chicken Taco Soup or maybe Instant Pot Beef Taco Soup? But what if you don’t have a pressure cooker? Then you NEED this recipe, right?!!!
Oh my gosh, If you’re not sure what to make when you’re short on time, this is the soup for you!
I also love this recipe because it makes enough for leftovers! Can I get a heck yes?
Soup leftovers are the best because then I have lunch for a few days after that.
Warming up midday with a warm bowl of homemade Taco Soup is amazing on a cold winter day! So much flavor!
My kids love it when I send it to school is this awesome thermos and they have warm soup for lunch!
