This easy taco soup recipe can be made in 30 minutes on the stove top, Instant Pot, or slow cooked in the Crock Pot for a healthy Mexican-inspired, make-ahead, one-bowl meal.
In the words of Rachel Ray, this easy taco soup eats more like a “stoup”, aka stew meets soup. It’s hearty, healthy, totally flavorful, not overly brothy, and once you’ve emptied your bowl you feel like you’ve actually eaten a meal. And all those taco toppings seal the Mexican dinner deal.
We all have different cooking styles and different needs. Fast. Slow. Later. That’s why I’m giving you this recipe with 3 sets of directions. This is how you do dinner fast. Or if you prefer, do it slow. Crock Pot. Instant Pot. Just one pot. You choose. It’s perfect for fast weeknight eats, make-ahead party feasts, or double it and freeze half for later meal-planning feats.
Beans, ground beef, and spicy tomatoes give this soup the same signature flavor as my mother-in-law’s homemade Taco Bell Tacos, but unlike a lot of taco soup recipes on the web, I skip the ranch dressing packet flavoring (I prefer to top with real sour cream at the end) and the taco seasoning packet and use real food Mexican spices instead.
