Taco Soup

Belinda Loucks


I find this to be a crowd pleaser. Over the holidays we have an open house and I make soup. I usually make 2 if not 3 different ones. But taco soup is always on the menu. You can substitute chicken in place of the hamburger.

How to Make Taco Soup


  1. In a stock pot brown your hamburger and drain. I believe is washing as few dishes as possible. That's why I brown my hamburger in the stock pot and not a skillet! =)
  2. Once you have your drained hamburger back in the stock pot add your diced onion and saute just a little bit to get the onion cooked. Then add your beef broth and taco seasoning.
  3. Mix all remaining ingredients in (except cheese, sour cream & chips) and simmer for the afternoon or cook on medium for 1 hour.
  4. The smell will bring them in the kitchen. To serve dish up your piping hot soup and top with grated cheese and a dollup of sour cream with chips on the side!
