Easy Cooking “Taco Soup”

Taco Soup? I am sure everyone has a Taco Soup Recipe. However, I have been asked by several persons to provide them with one – so I am sharing. For me, it is a fall and winter dish.   Easy Cooking, Easy Like Sunday Morning!


2 pounds of lean ground beef

2 packages of taco seasoning mix

1 large onion (chopped)

1 package of Hidden Valley (dry) Ranch Dressing mix

1 can of Bush’s chili beans (do not drain)

1 can of Bush’s chili black beans (do not drain)

1 can of Bush’s kidney beans (drained)

1 can of Bush’s red beans (drained)

1 can of whole kernel corn (drained)

1 can of Hunts Mexican style stewed tomatoes (do not drain)

1 can of Rotel tomatoes (do not drain)

1 can of sliced black olives (drain)

* 4 cups of water (you add more water if you like)


  • Brown the chopped onion and ground beef in a skillet (drain fat).
  • While the ground beef w/onion is browning, mix the other ingredients in a pot, and let simmer with the 4 cups of water.
  • Once the ground beef mixture is ready, add it to the pot with the other ingredients. Stir and bring it to a boil, reduce heat and let the soup simmer for an hour or so – stirring occasionally.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper.

*    Add or reduce water to make it more or less soupy.

*    You can also make this soup in the crock pot on low for 8 hours, or on high for 4 hours.

  • Garnish (if so desired) with sour cream, cheese, green onions, jalapenos.
  • It may be eaten with cornbread, cheese toast, or on a bed of tortilla chips.

I hope you enjoy!
