Easy Taco Soup

Slow Cooker Taco Soup Instant Pot Taco Soup

This Easy Taco Soup is bound to be a family favorite. And you can make it in your Instant Pot or Crockpot!

You’ll love bite after bite, no matter what time of year it is!

I’m a sucker for soups. Not only are they hearty, but every soup has it’s own unique and delicious flavor. To me, making homemade soups is one of the best meals there is.

It’s versatile, it tastes delicious as a leftover and honestly, there’s just nothing better than cuddling up after a long day of “whatever” with a giant, warm bowl of soup.

This easy taco soup is no different. But, the one thing that I really like about this soup is that the flavors truly make your taste buds dance. AND if you want to make ’em dance, even more, you can easily spice it up a bit also. 

Adding in some fresh jalapenos, some hot sauce, or even a dab of salsa can and will take this taco soup to a whole other level. 

My advice to you? Make up a giant batch for the upcoming weekend and week. That way, you’ll have an awesome homemade soup waiting for you when you get home from work every single day. 

Doesn’t that make you feel all warm and cozy already?

PERFECT MAKE-AHEAD RECIPE: I love making this on a Sunday and putting it separate containers for lunch all week long.
