Taco Soup Recipe

I love this taco soup recipe, it's like Chili with a kick! When my sister first introduced me to this recipe many years ago, I thought it couldn't possibly taste that great. It was far too easy to taste good. I was so wrong.

The rest is history. I've made this dozens and dozens of times since, and each time I am again impressed with the simplicity and the flavor.

Ingredients needed:

  • 1 lb hamburger meat (ground beef)
  • 1 onion, chopped fine
  • 2 cans of pinto (or ranch style) beans
  • 1 can of corn or hominy
  • 2 cans of Rotel tomatoes (tomatoes with green chilies)
  • 1 package of dry taco seasoning
  • 1 package of ranch dressing seasoning


Cook hamburger meat and chopped onion together. Drain the grease. Add the rest of the ingredients (don't drain the cans) and let simmer for 30 minutes.

There you have it, fast, easy and absolutely delicious. We love to make this for a winter evening in while having friends over to play poker.

*Tip* Serve with any combination of shredded cheese, sour cream, black olives, frito chips or tortilla chips for added interest.

**Even better if you serve it with a better than Perfect Margarita and Sopapilla Cream Cheese Dessert
