Easy Taco Soup Recipe

Winter is the perfect time to have a hearty soup simmering in the Crock Pot.

This Easy Taco Soup Recipe is delicious and inexpensive to make. It’s a straight out of the pantry ingredient recipe.

You can keep almost all the ingredients on hand for a last minute meal choice. I love having my pantry stocked with all the ingredients in case of a snow day in the middle of the week.

Taco Soup Recipe Ingredient Options

In addition to the ingredients listed on the recipe below, you can make many substitutions or additions and still have a fabulous dinner.

You can add cheese, sour cream, jalapeno’s, tortilla chips or strips, corn chips, etc. There are so many options and each one is delicious with the soup.

Main Course
Running Late Option

Should you find that you don’t have 4-6 Hours to slow cook your easy taco soup recipe, you can move to a sauce pan on the stove top.

Slow cooking certainly helps to blend the many ingredient flavors, however in a pinch, the stove top is still delicious.

Cooking a Large Pot of Taco Soup

Another advantage to cooking a large pot of soup is that any leftovers can be easily frozen for another winter’s day. Here is an Easy Enchilada Recipe that also freezes well for last minute meals.
