Quick and Easy Taco Soup Recipe is filled with ground beef, beans, corn and taco seasoning. It’s a quick dinner that uses lots of pantry staples!
This quick and easy taco soup was one of the very first recipes I made as a married woman. I was actually given this recipe by a friend, who also brought the soup with it, and I immediately fell in love. (with the soup…)
One of the main reasons I love this recipe so much is that it uses canned beans, corn, tomatoes and tomato sauce. I always keep a hefty stock of canned beans and tomatoes in my pantry, so it’s an easy dinner to whip up.

Simply brown some ground beef with a little onion, drain and add some taco seasoning and all the canned goods!

I think my absolute favorite thing about this soup is that it’s so easy to make AND you get to top it with all your favorite taco toppings!
We love adding shredded cheese (that’s a must), sour cream (it’s so good when you stir it in the soup), pico de gallo (diced tomatoes work just as well) and sliced avocado!
Don’t forget the lime wedges and corn chips too!
We also use the leftovers to top salads, make tacos or burritos, and it’s also good with an egg on top for a hefty brunch.
My whole family adores this soup. In fact, I served this the day after Christmas and there was not one drop left!
You can’t beat a meal that comes together super quick and tastes amazing… PLUS it uses pantry staples! It’s a win-win.
