A hearty stove top taco soup recipe made with beef, beans, corn, chiles, tomatoes, and a mixture of zesty seasonings!

While it’s still technically Summer, the Fall season is just around the corner. So, for today, we’re sharing my stove top taco soup.

It’s a soup that eats like a hearty chili recipe. Best of all, it’s loaded with ground beef, onions, beans, corn, and chiles.

The hardest part is waiting for the soup to cook. But, trust me, it’s worth the wait. So, shall we get cooking?

What goes with taco soup?

Honestly, just about anything. In fact, you can top your taco soup with Doritos, sour cream, cheese or anything you desire.

Go crazy and make a loaded taco soup for your family. Our recipe can be used as a base and can be easily modified.

How to make stove top taco soup from scratch?

To begin, starting with a stock pot over medium heat. In that pan, combine the onions and ground beef.

Let everything cook for 10-15 minutes or until the meat is thoroughly cooked. Make sure to stir the mix around to break up the meat.

Afterward, add both the seasoning packets. Let that mixture cook on the stove top for another 2-3 minutes.

All that is left to do is add the beans, corn, Rotel, and the water. Stir everything together in the pot and let it simmer for 30-40 minutes.

That’s it, the recipe is done! Kim and I hope you enjoy it and wish you all the best 🙂

Recipe Tips:

  • The longer you let the taco soup simmer determines its thickness. So, if you want it really thick like ours, then let it cook down for a bit.
  • You can top it with whatever you like. Kim’s Grandmother loves hers with Cool Ranch Doritos. We tried cheese, green onions, sour cream, and tortilla chips. It was all wonderful.
