Easy Taco Soup Recipe

This Easy Taco Soup Recipe is delicious and inexpensive to make. It’s a straight-out-of 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.

Winter is perfect for a hearty soup simmering in the Crock Pot.

Running Late Option

If you don’t have 4-6 Hours to slow cook your easy taco soup recipe, you can move to a saucepan on the stovetop.

Slow cooking helps blend the many ingredient flavors; however, in a pinch, the stovetop 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 quickly frozen for another winter’s day. Here is an Easy Enchilada Recipe that also freezes well for last-minute meals.
