It’s a Taco Soup Night

by Lisa on March 4, 2013

We are still experiencing cold weather here in the Midwest.   Actually, they are predicting snow – again – tomorrow.  With the cold, I wanted something warm to eat.  Stay warm, folks… and for those of you down south, already starting your “spring”…. I don’t want to know about it.  LOL! 🙂

Taco Soup/

Taco Soup

  • 1 lb ground beef, browned (I use lean ground turkey)
  • 1 can Ro*tel (You can omit if you do not want it to be spicy
  • 1 can whole kernel corn – do not drain
  • 8 oz can tomato sauce
  • 1 can stewed tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 cans water
  • 1 can ranch style or chili style beans – do not drain
  • 1 small onion chopped and cooked with the ground meat
  • 1 package taco seasoning mix ( I use a low sodium seasoning packet or mix my own)

Brown meat, sauteing the onions with the meat. Drain any grease.  In a dutch oven or soup pot add meat and all other ingredients.  Simmer on stove-top until ready to eat.

I like to serve this soup with several sides, letting the family choose what toppings they want to add to their soup.

Options:  Fritos, grated cheese, sour cream, green onions, black olives, chopped cilantro, or diced avocado.   You choose what toppings are best for the preferences of your family.  My husband loves Jiffy cornbread muffins with his taco soup.

This sounds delicious. We are expecting 6-7 inches tomorrow afternoon and this sounds perfect.

Your Taco Soup looks yummy. We’re expecting our first snow here in a long time tonight and tomorrow morning too – guess the Groundhog was wrong! I’m sharing some Irish Hot Chocolate Cupcakes with Spice Infused Buttercream Frosting to help warm everyone up. 🙂 Thanks for hosting, and have a wonderful week! Stay warm!!

Yep, still cold here in PA too. Although I’ve resolved myself to the fact that it will be cold for the rest of the month. So I’ll just keep making soups like you did. Thanks for hosting!

Hi Lisa,
We are still pretty chilly here in New York… I brought a slow cooker chicken stew to warm us up. Thanks for the party. Your taco soup looks delicious.

That Taco Soup looks very good! I have never made taco soup before. I have thought about having one night a week be soup week, this would be a great recipe to add.
Thanks for sharing and thanks for the linky.

This soup sounds perfect for anytime of year, but particularly in the cooler weather 🙂 It looks absolutely delicious! This week I’ve shared a quick, easy and delicious Curried Mango Chicken. Thank you for hosting.

Oh, Lisa, I really must learn to eat lunch before coming to your link party because these recipes ALL look so delicious! If you haven’t already, I’d love if you’d come join my How To Tuesday link party, too.
