Taco Soup

Jennifer H


This is a hearty, warming weeknight dinner. Or make it on a Sunday and you have lunches for the week. It freezes well, so you might consider doubling your batch for future dinners. You can decide how zippy you want it by adding red pepper flakes or your favorite fresh peppers.

How to Make Taco Soup


  1. Heat a large pot or Dutch oven, pour a little olive oil and add garlic, onion and green peppers. Cook until the onion is barely translucent.
  2. Add the ground beef and spices. Cook about 5-6 minutes, or until the beef is just about done.
  3. Add tomato sauce, diced tomatoes and water. Cover and bring to a boil, then crack the lid, reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes.
  4. Add the corn and black beans. Cook another 5 minutes or just enough to warm them through.
  5. Ladle into bowls. Top with shredded cheese, sour cream, avocado and fresh cilantro.
