Easy Taco Night Soup

Everyone loves tacos, even at home. Tacos are easy and delicious! It’s a win/win situation. What could be better? A delicious taco soup, of course! While taco night can be an ease, there’s still lots of steps—and too many dishes. So instead of messing up several pans, this taco night soup uses just one pot. You know what that means? Faster cleanup! You won’t miss your favorite taco flavors in this one either. Another perk? This taco night soup is also healthy and hearty at the same time. Enjoy this one year-round, but especially in cooler months when you just want to snuggle up with a bowl of soup and be warmed up from the inside out.

My family adores this soup and could eat it all the time. I love it too, so I don’t mind the frequent requests to remake it! Kids of all ages also love this one and I am sure yours will too. All the little kids in my family tend to tip back the bowl to get the last sips.

It’s definitely a go-to for soup season, but also just anytime of the year you’re feeling the craving for it. Once you make it a few times, like me, you won’t need to follow the recipe and can throw it together for even more ease. I know I have made it a few times in a pinch, and it always saves the day.

It’s a delicious soup that doesn’t go out of style, is easy to make, with common ingredients, and perfect flavor. It also saves well (the rare chance you have leftovers), reheats like a dream, and you’ll return to time and again.

FREEZING EASY TACO NIGHT SOUP

Easy taco night soup does awesome in the freezer! It reheats like you would not believe, and you can’t even tell it wasn’t just made. Here’s some tips:

  1. Let the soup cool off completely.
  2. When placing in a freezer bag or bowl, leave room in the container for the soup to expand as it freezes.
  3. Label your container and freeze up to six months!
  4. Thaw in microwave (depending on container) or fridge before reheating in a pan.
  5. To serve more, add in more seasoning, beans, and tomatoes.

Easy Taco Night Soup in a crock pot?

For sure! Simply brown your beef and onions and garlic in a separate pan. Next, drain the fat from the beef. Then, add the beef to the slow cooker with broth, tomatoes and sauce, and spices. Prepare on low heat for five to six hours. Then, add in your beans and corn. Afterwards, you can add in any other ingredients you may want.

Easy Taco Night Soup with turkey?

Absolutely! Ground turkey works really well in easy taco night soup. Pork is also a great option. To make it vegetarian, you can use extra beans or even lentils to keep the volume.

Easy Taco Night Soup for the freezer?

Easy taco night soup holds up to six months in the freezer! I would recommend that you portion it out for easy thawing. There’s many different types of freezer safe containers, jars, and bags to choose from.
