How to Make Taco Soup with Spanish Rice

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large skillet, brown ground meat and drain.
  2. In a large stockpot or dutch oven, saute green pepper and onion in olive oil until soft. Add ground meat and stir.
  3. Add 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.
  4. To 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!
