7 Can Chicken Taco Soup

Dinner does not get any easier than this 7 can chicken taco soup! Dump 7 cans into a pot plus some seasonings and that’s it! Serve with tortilla chips, cheese, and sour cream. You won’t believe how yummy & easy it is.

7 Can Chicken Taco Soup

I am sure you have seen some sort of this ‘7 or 8 can soup’ floating around the internet & pinterest. I’ve made it more times than I can count but never posted it on the blog because……. it uses canned chicken! I know. I know. I am normally totally against canned meat of any kind (well, except tuna) but I promise you that it works in this soup. Somehow it tastes good and looks appetizing (which is hard to do with canned chicken). 

If you have any issues with canned products well then come back tomorrow because today is all about the cans! My sister-in-law put this recipe into a family cookbook that we made. I remember making it the first few times and using my own shredded chicken in place of the canned chicken. I then made it with canned chicken and I texted her right after saying how surprisingly good it was with the canned chicken!

7 Can Chicken Taco Soup

Feel free to use your own shredded chicken if that is what you prefer. But if you want an easy meal that can be on the table in 30 minutes and that tastes delicious, then this recipe is for you 🙂

The seasonings can always be customized to your preference. I used a packet of mild taco seasoning because I knew I was adding some other spices, and I wanted my kids to eat it without it being too spicy.

7 Can Chicken Taco Soup

Use 1 1/2 cups of your own shredded chicken if that is what you prefer.

      Yes it is! Surprisingly, I don’t even mind the canned chicken in this soup 🙂 Although, I have made it before using shredded chicken I cooked in the crock pot beforehand. So good either way. Thanks for coming back to let me know.

      Hi Margie! Sorry my reply is so late. My comments have been down while I’ve been switching hosts for my site. I would say that it makes enough for 6 good sized adult servings.

      Using real chicken works really well too! I’ve made it both ways (with the canned chicken and the real chicken) and we loved them both. Thanks for stopping by and commenting 🙂

    I can’t wait to try this recipe. What do you suggest serving with as a side? I know it’s kind of a complete meal in a pot but I’d love to have at least one other food on the table with it.

      Hi Amanda! I either serve this with cornbread (we all love cornbread in my family) or some fruit. My kids really like kiwi and pineapple or I’ll use whatever fruit I have. For the most part, I always serve it with cornbread because it’s something we all love. This is the recipe that I keep coming back to, it’s really yummy! http://www.theoldhen.com/2012/04/14/homemade-cornbread/
