  • 1 1/2 lbs lean ground beef
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 (15 oz) can stewed tomatoes do not drain
  • 1 can (15 oz) chili beans do not drain
  • 1 can (15 oz) pinto beans drained & rinsed
  • 1 can (15 oz) corn drained
  • 1 can (14.5 oz) petite diced tomatoes do not drain
  • 1 packet ranch seasoning mix


  • In a soup pot, over medium-high heat, cook and crumble ground beef until no longer pink. Drain. Add the packet of taco seasoning and mix together.
  • In a blender, add the can of undrained stewed tomatoes and all of the water or some of it (if needed). Blend together and add into the soup. 
  • Add in the chili beans, pinto beans, corn, petite diced tomatoes, and packet of ranch seasoning mix. Stir together and bring to a boil. 
  • Turn heat to low and let simmer for 15-25 minutes.
  • Serve with all your favorite taco toppings and enjoy!


Use anywhere from 1 pound to 1 1/2 pounds of lean ground beef. Some stores only sell 1 pound packages (which will work fine), while other stores sell the weighted packages. 
If you have the time simmer this soup for longer than called for. You can never go wrong with too much simmer time when it comes to soup!
