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! ;)

 Taco Soup

World’s best taco soup recipe!


  • 1 lb hamburger or turkery burger
  • 1-2 TB Mccormick taco seasoning (more or less to taste)
  • 1 medium sweet onion, chopped finely
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 15 oz can black beans, drained
  • 1 15 ozcan kindey beans, drained
  • 1 15 oz can pinto or white beans, drained and rinsed (optional)
  • 1 15 oz can corn
  • 1 can rotel tomato's
  • 1 15 oz can diced tomato's
  • 1/4 cup salsa (fresh is best)
  • 1 15oz can tomato sauce


  1. Brown hamburger in a large pan over medium heat. Add in the onions, bell peppers and saute for a few minutes.
  2. Add in the remaining ingredients and stir until combined. Let simmer for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. You can add a little water if it starts getting too thick. You could also put this soup in a crock pot and let cook on low for several hours.
  3. Top with sour cream and cheese. Serve with tortilla chips. Enjoy!
This soup is a great freezer meal. Allow the soup to cool and then place in a freezer Ziploc bag or container. It will stay good for up to six months in the freezer.

      I have been making Taco Soup for 6 months, My cholesterol has dropped to normal level and hopefully it will stay there. I made up my own recipe for Taco Soup but I will definitely be trying yours. I must tell you that is all I eat for dinner almost every night but it did it’s job.

    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!

    I absolutely love taco soup! My husband thinks i make it too much but i don’t think thats possible! i’ve always done it with chicken but ground beef/turkey would be good too, i’ll have to try it!

    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.

      I’m glad you enjoyed it! I’ve never tried it with out the meat, so I will have to next time and see how it is. Thanks for sharing!

      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.

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

  6. Whitney Baze

    I’m going to try this. It’s only slightly different than the one I usually make. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Annette

    This looks so delicious! I’m making it tomorrow but I’m curious if you drain and rinse the beans?

  8. Carole

    Great soup. The new Food on Friday is all about soup. It would be wonderful if you linked this in. Here’s the link . Have a souper duper week!

    I’d love to try your recipe for taco soup, but I am unable to print it. Can you help me???

    I made this for dinner tonight and it was so delicious and quick!! We loved it. Thank you!

      Hey Stacey! Are you still having trouble getting the images to load? What browser are you using? Hopefully it is working for you now.

    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?

    • Jamielyn

      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! :)

    • Jamielyn

      I’m so glad you loved it…this really is one of my families favorite recipes! I’ve never tried it with corn muffins though, I will definitely have to make some next time! Thanks for the suggestion!

  13. Linda

    This taco soup really is the best! My whole family LOVED it. Thanks so much for sharing your family recipes with us.

  14. Melissa

    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!
