This recipe is delicious, comforting, and makes a TON. My husband and I love it because we freeze half, and have an easy meal for after a busy night at work.

How to Make Taco Soup with Spanish Rice


  • 1In a large skillet, brown ground meat and drain.
  • 2In a large stockpot or dutch oven, saute green pepper and onion in olive oil until soft. Add ground meat and stir.
  • 3Add canned beans, canned tomatoes, and canned corn. (The only thing I drain is the corn. Stir in ranch dressing mix, taco seasoning, and other spice until mixed well. Bring to a boil, cover, and simmer for 1 hour. Meanwhile, prepare Spanish rice according to package directions.
  • 4To serve, spoon a small amount of rice into the bottom of bowl, top with taco soup. I like to add another small spoonful of rice on top. Garnish with shredded cheddar, chopped avocado, and cilantro. This is a great, filling, easy, and comforting meal!
