I typically enjoy soups years round, but love them especially when it’s cooler out. This creamy beef taco soup is made on the stovetop, but can also be made in the slow cooker to save some time in the afternoon. 

The broccoli is my favorite part of this soup for the added fiber and the flavor it adds. If you don’t like broccoli, especially in a taco soup, feel free to omit it. It will still taste delicious without it.

Ingredients

What you’ll need to make this recipe.

How to make this recipe

1 – Brown the ground beef over medium-high heat in a large pot. Once the ground beef is done cooking, drain it and return it to the pot.

2 – Add an envelope of taco seasoning and stir it into the ground beef.

3 – Add all the canned ingredients, water, broccoli, and remaining taco seasoning and dry ranch mix and stir to combine. Heat until the frozen broccoli begins to soften, stirring often. Reduce heat to low.

4 – Lastly, add cream cheese and Greek yogurt to the pot and simmer for 10 minutes, until cream cheese and yogurt are blended with no lumps.

A tip: If you want to make this recipe into a dip for tortilla chips, or to put over tortilla chips in nacho form, you can eliminate the water and it will give the recipe a thicker consistency. However, if you plan to eat in a bowl with a spoon like soup, then proceed with the water. 🙂

Creamy Taco Soup Slow cooker method

To make in the slow cooker, follow the same steps as the stovetop version. Then, cook on low for 3-4 hours to heat everything through.

What can I eat with taco soup?

Chopped cilantro or green onion, hot sauce and avocado for toppings. Corn chips, tortilla chips, rolls or cornbread for the side. 

How do I store taco soup?

Place cooled soup in an airtight container. Properly stored, taco soup will last for 3 days in the refrigerator.

Can I freeze taco soup?

Yes! Place soup in a freezer safe resealable bag and lay flat to freeze. Properly stored, taco soup will be good for 4 to 6 months in the freezer.

Yum looks so good! I like the idea of using a slow cooker. I think I can “veganize” this recipe and enjoy the spicy flavors.

Taco soup sounds really good right now and I think I would have it with the broccoli. Great tips about using the slow-cooker and cooking the beef.
