Taco soup is by far the most requested meal at my house. My husband LOVES it and could probably eat it twice a week. It’s one of my favorite meals too. Heck the kids even love it…and they are PICKY! I just don’t add the taco seasoning to their bowls. It’s definitely one of our all time favorite (EASY) recipes to make! I originally posted this recipe two years ago but wanted to post my “re-vamped” version with fall just around the corner.
Everyone I make this for always asks for the “secret” taco soup recipe. I promise it’s super easy to make. If my husband can make this…YOU can too! ;)

Taco soup!


  • 1 lb hamburger or turkery burger You can leave out the meat as well
  • 2 TB taco seasoning more or less to taste
  • 1 medium sweet onion chopped finely
  • 1/2 green bell pepper chopped
  • 1/2 red bell pepper chopped
  • 1/2 orange or yellow bell pepper chopped
  • 1 15 oz can black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 15 ozcan kindey beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 15 oz can corn with water
  • 1 can rotel tomato's mild or medium
  • 1 15 oz can diced tomato's
  • 1/4 cup salsa
  • 1 8 oz can tomato sauce


  1. Brown hamburger in a large pan. Add in onions, bell peppers and saute for a few minutes.
  2. Add in 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 pout and let cook on low for several hours.
  3. Top with your favorite fix in's. Our favorites are 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 up to six months in the freezer.

    Yum! That looks awesome! I make Chicken Tortilla soup all the time and I'm kinda sick of it. I'll totally try this! Thanks for the recipe!

    Thank you! My husband & kids would love this – they always complain tacos are "messy" (guys that dislike messy food – weirdos right?).

    I wanted to let you know that I made this last night and it was DELICIOUS! I ended up using extra salsa in lieu of the Rotel or green chilies (my husband doesn't like spicy). I'm so glad you shared this recipe! Next time I'm making double so I can freeze half. Yum!

    Thanks for sharing your yummy recipes. I am not overly excited about my time in the kitchen and seem to be in a meal time slump. We LOVED your recipe. My husband said it was probably the best Taco soup he has ever eaten! Thanks!!!!! As a mother of 5 boys, I really appreciate any help I can get. :0]
