This easy taco soup is one of my favorite easy recipes for ground beef (or ground turkey).
It’s a family favorite. My mom loves it too.
It’s perfect for a healthy lunch or simple supper. I love soup for supper.
This is a easy delicious soup made from browned lean ground beef and a few common pantry staples. (Feel free to substitute ground turkey if you like it better. I often do.)
While the soup simmers, you have time to assemble the tasty toppings that help make this simple soup so special – avocado, sour cream, shredded cheese and even fresh lime and cilantro.
I live in Phoenix where fresh limes and cilantro are always easy to find, but if you don’t, this soup is still delicious without them.
If you like thinner soup feel free to add more water.
I hope you enjoy this easy tasty soup recipe as much as we do.
- 1/2 pound lean ground beef
- 1 cup chopped onion 1 medium-size onion
- 1 can 14.5 ounces Mexican-style diced tomatoes, undrained
- 1 can 15.5 ounces beans (kidney, pinto, black or chili), undrained
- 1 can 11 ounces corn, undrained
- 1 can 8 ounces tomato sauce
- 1 package 1.25 ounces reduced sodium taco seasoning
- 1 avocado peeled and cut into cubes
- 1 cup sour cream or Greek style yogurt
- 1 cup pre-shredded cheese Cheddar, Jack or Mexican blend
- 1/4 cup fresh cilantro sprigs
- 1 lime cut into 8 wedges
- Tortilla chips for garnish, if desired
Spray a large sauce pot (4 quart) with cooking spray and place it over medium-high heat. Add the ground beef and break it up with a wooden spoon, stirring for about 1 minute. Stir in the onion and continue to cook, stirring often, until the ground beef is brown all over and the onion is soft, about 4 to 5 minutes.
Stir in the tomatoes, beans, corn, tomato sauce and taco seasoning. Fill the can of tomato sauce with water and add it to the pot too. Stir well. Allow the soup to come to a boil and then reduce the heat to low, cover the pot and let the soup bubble gently for 15 minutes.
While the soup is simmering, get your avocado, sour cream, cheese, cilantro, lime and corn chips ready.
To serve, ladle the hot soup into serving bowls and pass around the avocado cubes, sour cream, cheese, cilantro, lime wedges and tortilla chips so everyone can top it just the way they like it.
