Hearty Taco Soup

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Melanie2590

This is a really simple, delicious, very filling soup that my entire family just LOVES. It is easy to make and it freezes very well so I usually double the recipe and have leftovers in my freezer for whenever I get the craving for it. It's pretty dang healthy, too! Just a little spicy but not unbearable- even my 4 year old likes it.

This was very meaty, spicy, and had a nice texture. I added chopped green onions on top of each bowl. Delicious!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook beef (or turkey) and onion in a large skillet until meat is done. Transfer meat mix to a large pot.
  2. Add ranch dressing mix, taco seasoning, and 1 cup water and stir well.
  3. Add remaining ingredients. (The easiest way to measure the corn is to pour it into an empty bean or tomato can before adding to the pot).
  4. Simmer for 1 hour, stirring ocassionally.
  5. Top with shredded cheese and serve with corn bread. Yum!
