Easy taco soup is loaded with ground beef, chili beans, corn, and tomatoes. Pile it high with corn chips, sour cream, and shredded cheese. Taco soup is a simple recipe that is so comforting during the cold winter months. One pot and about 30 minutes is all you need for an easy dinner!
Happy New Year! I love the new start that we all get in a new year. It feels so rejuvenating and motivating….. at least for the first week or so, lol 🙂 Every year I do the usual resolution of eating better and exercising more. But this year I have decided to pick a word to focus on for the new year. My word for 2018 is POSITIVITY.
It’s such a simple word but so powerful. Our 2nd grader has been having a really hard time lately at school. He compares himself to his friends and always says that “he’s not smart enough” or “he does not read as well as his friends.” I try and teach him about being positive and how everyone is good at different things. I realized that I am probably not the best example to him of being positive. Which is why I want that to be our 2018 word.
Taco soup is a classic comfort food. There is nothing better than a warm pot of soup on the stove that’s simmering away. I always put out bowls of toppings on the counter so that everyone can top theirs how they want. Bowls of Fritos scoops chips (these are a must!), sour cream, shredded cheese, avocado, and anything else you want. We stick to the basics because that’s what we love.
If you want some spice then top yours with jalapeno or cilantro. If you want to keep yours lower on calories then use Greek Yogurt. There are so many ways to customize taco soup!
All you have to do is brown some ground beef with chopped onion. Add in a few cans and some taco seasoning and let it simmer away. Super delicious and super easy!
Eat with a spoon or use the Fritos Scoop chips…. no judging here. If you have not had those Fritos Scoops with taco soup then you are missing out. Life changing I tell you!
Enjoy friends. If it’s as cold where you are as it is here in Maryland, then I know this taco soup will warm you right up.

- 1 lb lean ground beef
- 1 yellow onion finely diced
- 1 can (14.75 oz) reduced-sodium beef broth
- 3 cans (15.5 oz each) chili beans undrained
- 1 can (15 oz) petite diced tomatoes undrained
- 1 can (15 oz) corn undrained
- 1 can (8 oz) tomato sauce
- 1 packet taco seasoning I use the mild version
In a pot, over medium high heat, cook and crumble the ground beef with the chopped onion until meat is no longer pink. Drain.
Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium low and let simmer for 20-25 minutes. This helps the soup thicken and the flavors come together.
Serve with your favorite toppings; shredded cheese, sour cream, Fritos Scoops, avocado, etc.
Use whatever onion you prefer. I would suggest a yellow onion, white onion, or a sweet onion (Vidalia onion). This recipe is not spicy. If you want more heat then use a can of Rotel diced tomatoes in place of the diced tomato and/or add a can of diced green chilies. As always, customize the spices to your liking. If one taco seasoning packet is not enough, then add some additional garlic powder, cumin, and chili powder to the soup.
