Taco soup can be made in a large soup pot on the stove in about 30 minutes. The great thing about this recipe is that it’s takes a few simple ingredients and transforms them into a hot and delicious filling soup that is perfect for those chilly fall and winter evenings.

Here’s how easy it is to make:

Once the beef is browned, add the diced onion and celery, salt, black pepper, green beans, and taco seasoning. Continue cooking 2-3 minutes.

Add the Tomato Juice, Tomato Soup, and Diced Tomatoes to the kettle. Once the remaining ingredients have been added, I like to fill the soup kettle with water to approximately 1-inch from the top if using a 5-quart kettle. Over medium-high heat, bring to a boil stirring occasionally.

Serve it up, garnish and enjoy.
