Creamy beef taco soup is sure to satisfy and is low in calories. It’s easy to make and comes together in a short amount of time.
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.

What you’ll need to make this recipe.
- 93/7 ground beef
- Canned stewed tomatoes
- Black beans
- Pinto beans
- Frozen broccoli
- Fat free cream cheese
- Fat free vanilla Greek yogurt
- Ranch mix
- Taco seasoning
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.
