The air is starting to get a slight chill in it, and that only means one thing – SOUP TIME!
I love soups, especially easy ones. They are quick to make, they taste good, they’re healthy, they freeze well, and they taste just as good (if not better) as left overs!
This recipe for Taco Soup is seriously the best one out there. (Watch for the secret ingredient!) (Full recipe is at the end of the post.)
Here’s the line up of ingredients:
Just dump them all into a soup pot and heat it all up. (I already had cooked hamburger/chopped onions ready to go in my freezer so that saved even more time!)
If you have a packet of taco seasoning, go ahead and add that into the pot. If you don’t have that on hand, a mixture of these seasonings will work just fine!
And then you’re done! It’s so easy!
Did you catch the secret ingredient? Yep, it’s a can of refried beans! It seriously makes this soup taste soooo yummy!
When it’s all done cooking, just sprinkle on a little cheese, and eat with a big slice of homemade bread slathered in butter!
Easiest Taco Soup
1 lb of ground beef, browned
1 onion, chopped (cook with the ground beef)
15 oz can tomato sauce
28 oz can diced tomatoes
30 oz can refried beans
15 oz can of black beans, drained
1 tomato can of water (15 oz)
1 package of taco seasoning*
After browning the meat/onion, dump everything into a soup pot and heat up on the stove (or a crockpot would work great too).
Top with shredded cheese and eat with a slice of homemade bread or tortilla chips. Yum!
