Taco Soup

At any given point, you can usually find at least a few tupperware containers filled with taco soup in my freezer. We love this meal. It’s so easy to make, tastes amazing and freezes/reheats well too. Oh, and I should mention you can also prepare this recipe in a crock pot!

*for a good laugh, check out my original taco soup post from my early blogging days a looooong time ago.

  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 2 tbsp taco seasoning

    Ooo! We make taco soup all the time because I love that you can use basically whatever ingredients you have on hand. But I never thought about adding ranch dressing seasoning! That sounds fabulous. Thanks for sharing!

    I have actually never had taco soup and being that I love to cook.. it's almost hard to believe that I've never made it myself. With that being said, what time should I be over for dinner?

    Have you made a vegetarian version of this? Do you think I could get away with adding extra beans and just skipping the ground beef?

    I think I could live off of soups like this. I'll def be trying yours! Freezing leftovers is a must in our house, so nice to be able to pull out at the last minute!
