Taco Soup



  • 1 pound hamburger, browned
  • 1 pkg taco seasoning (choose whichever brand/amount of heat you would use on a normal taco)
  • 1 onion, medium-fine chopped and sautéed
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced and sauteed with onion
  • 1 large box or can of beef broth
  • 1 can corn
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 can rotel (can use salsa)
  • ½ tsp. cilantro (only if dried, fresh cilantro will be much stronger, add to your liking for taste)
  • 1 pkg. medium tortilla shells cut into squares (pizza cutter works great for this)  Use these as “crackers” for your soup and add to your individual bowl when serving.



  1. Cook over medium heat covered for approx. 30 minutes, or enough to allow flavors to meld.
  2. Can also slow-cook in the crock pot.
  3. You’ll notice the measurements are vague as I didn’t include specific can/box sizes.
  4. This recipe isn’t dependant on perfect measurements or ingredients.
  5. I often substitute/add extra home-canned veggies, salsas, broth etc.
