Taco soup is by far the most requested meal at my house. My husband LOVES it and could probably eat it everyday. It’s one of my favorite meals too. The kids even love it…and they are PICKY! It’s definitely one of our all time favorite and EASY recipes to make!
Everyone I’ve made this recipe for always asks for the “secret” recipe. I promise it’s super easy to make. If my husband can make this …you can too! ;)

    I make your recipe ALL the time and I’ve tweaked it a few times depending on what I have on hand or what I feel like throwing in! It is delicious! Craig would love if I added the bell peppers! Thanks for sharing Jam!

    That is soooo funny! I haven’t been to your website in a while, but I came back today because I wanted to pin your Taco soup recipe on Pintrest in my “Family Favorites” category. We LOVE this soup. I was expecting to have to search for it but there it was right at the top as today’s post! It must be a taco soup kind of day everywhere. :-) And we love to top this soup with diced avocados. Yum!

    Made it tonight. I did all 3 beans, being that I am a vegetarian and was a little worried at first look. However, after letting it simmer the juices surrounded the vegetables and beans and it was tasty.

      We have another Taco Soup Recipe, similar to yours but with white corn and ranch dressing mix. (I’ll have to find a way to share it somewhere someday.) But my point here is that I make ours Vegetarian style. To “look” the role of meat I add lentils, about a cup cooked for each pound of hamburger called for. It looks the role of meat with it’s color and texture. My family loves it this way, and it works for other recipes as well.

        I make mine with ranch dressing mix also. And tomato paste instead of sauce. Delicious, and healthy!

        • Jamielyn replied on August 16th, 2013 at 2:01 pm

          Sounds yummy! I love how there are so many different variations of taco soup…such a great recipe!

    Does anyone know about how many servings this makes? I’m trying to figure out the nutritional info from sparkpeople.com Thanks.

    • Jamielyn replied on September 13th, 2012 at 8:47 pm

      It makes about 6-8 servings. Usually 8 for our family. Hope that helps.

    I love this soup! I got the recipe at a weight watcher meeting 8-9 years ago. One point per cup back then.

    I love this soup. I used a large can of white hominy and sliced up two cans of black olives. Also garnished with cilantro. Delicious!

    We don’t have Rotel in Canada. I thought it was like salsa but you also add salsa, so what could I use as a substitute?

    Reply

    • Jamielyn replied on July 29th, 2013 at 11:55 am

      You can substitute the can of Rotel tomatoes for a 14oz can of diced tomatoes and an 8oz can of green chiles! Hope that helps! :)

    Sounds great but have a question. Do you drain the can of corn and tomatoes before adding or do you add with the juices?

    Reply

    • Jamielyn replied on August 28th, 2013 at 2:04 pm

      You can drain the can of corn, but leave the juice of tomatoes for the soup! :)

    This was delicious! So glad I tried it tonight, I loved how quickly it came together. It went great with homemade corn muffins.

    This looks great! I plan to make this in the crock pot, and am curious if you still brown the meat and then throw the meat and all else into the crockpot? Just want to figure out how that part works. Thanks!

      Hi Melissa!! I like to brown the hamburger first and then throw everything else in! Hope you enjoy it! :)
