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.
I am sure you have seen some version of this ‘7 or 8 can soup’ floating around 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’m 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). It really is the only recipe that I use 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! I dare say that I prefer the canned chicken in this recipe!
Simply dump all ingredients into a soup pot on the stove top and bring it to a simmer. Let it cook for a bit for the flavors to come together and serve! This 7 can chicken taco soup can be on the dinner table in just 20 minutes.
I tell you what, nothing beats a super quick & delicious dinner that your family will actually eat without complaining.
This is so kid friendly because everyone can top their own with what they like. Sour cream, shredded cheese, avocado or guacamole, fresh tomato, and tortilla chips. All kids love making their own food so I know this will be a hit with kids of all ages.
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 20 minutes and that tastes delicious, then this recipe is for you 🙂
The seasonings can always be customized to your preference. You could add some red pepper flakes or use a packet of spicy taco seasoning if that’s what you prefer.
I use 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. If you prefer a homemade taco seasoning then give my recipe a try and use about 3 tablespoons in place of the packet of taco seasoning.
- 1 can black beans drained & rinsed
- 1 can pinto beans drained & rinsed

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