Do you know how easy it is to make Taco Soup? This is a hearty chili-style soup made with beef, tomatoes, beans, and corn. It’s full of Mexican flavors and is the perfect thing to make for busy nights.

Top with tortilla chips (or my favorite corn chips!), shredded cheese, sour cream, or avocado for some delicious flavor and texture. 

Classic Taco Soup is an easy dinner favorite

Hearty Taco Soup

Are you year-round soup fans? I’ve always served my family soup year-round and we love it. I think it makes things easier on busy nights to just heat up a big pot of soup.

Taco Soup is hearty and filling for those busy days when you don’t get much of a break to sit down.

Served with warm dinner rolls, Garden Chive Rolls, or buttered slices of this Harvest Squash Bread, it’s a meal that we all enjoy.

If you’re feeling a bit more ambitious than I am, you could even make your own Fritos for topping.

Maybe my favorite thing about soup and this one, in particular, is that the recipe makes a big pot and there are sure to be leftovers.

And unlike some other leftovers, Taco Soup only gets better after a day or two in the fridge. Zuppa Toscana and this Beef Barley Soup are two more soups that are really great reheated for lunches.

I heated up these leftovers for lunch today and honestly wished there had been enough to have it again for supper tonight.

This is also a perfect meal to make a double batch of and throw half into the freezer for later. (I do this just about every time I make a pot of this soup!)

Just thaw and you have an even quicker meal waiting for you. Plus it’s no extra work to make a double batch.

This soup comes together fast with only a few minutes of hands-on time and simmering. It can be ready for you in well under an hour.
