How to make Taco Soup:
Taco Soup is one of my favorite recipes. I make this for lunch for myself on the stovetop at least twice a week.
You can also make it in the slow cooker! Cook your ground beef, and then add your remaining ingredients.
Bring to a boil and then simmer. When serving for dinner I love to serve them with these Mini Cornbread Muffins.
Taco Soup Ingredients:
- Ground beef: I like to use lean ground beef. You can also use ground turkey.
- Corn: Use canned or frozen.
- Salsa: Whatever salsa you prefer will work. I use mild store-bought salsa. Taco soup with salsa gives this recipe the perfect flavor.
- Green chilies
- Taco seasoning: this taco soup recipe with ranch is one of my favorite parts. It gives it such a a good flavor! You can use a store-bought mix or make it homemade.
- Black Beans: Drained and rinsed. Make sure you don't skip rinsing them since that could make the soup overly salty.
- Ranch seasoning
- Beef broth
How to make Taco Soup:
Step one: In a large pot cook ground beef, crumbling, and stir occasionally until browned. Drain fat as needed and return to stovetop.
Step two: Next add in your corn, salsa, chilies, black beans, taco seasoning, dry ranch mix and mix together well. Taco soup with ranch is so good so don't skip out on the ranch seasoning.
Step three: Pour in beef broth and allow to simmer on medium/low for 30-40 minutes.
Step four: Serve and top with optional toppings.
We love serving our taco soup with anything we would put in tacos.

Taco soup doesn't last long in our house, because I can eat it for all 3 meals of every day. It's that good!
