Taco Soup

This is a quick easy delicious recipe that we really enjoy at our house. My friend (and former co-worker) Wanda shared it with me. (With a shout out to Mandy who might enjoy it!)

Taco Soup

2 pounds ground beef, browned and drained
1 large onion, chopped
2 packages taco seasoning mix
2 large cans (15 ounces each) hominy
2 small cans Rotel chopped tomatoes
4 regular cans (15 ounces each) pinto beans
1 15 ounce can tomato sauce

Dump everything in a big pot. Bring to a boil and simmer 30-60 minutes.
Serve with tortilla chips and garnish with shredded cheddar or Mexican cheese.

Any even easier variation: omit meat and onion. Also works well to substitute ground turkey. Generally, we use 1 pound of meat instead of 2. Also you can easily halve the recipe if it makes too much, though we like it for leftovers and it freezes well.


Update 11/8/11: I made this for meatless Monday yesterday by substituting one pack of Lightlife Smart Ground for the ground beef. Tasted great!


  1. Excellent Recipe. Certainly sounds easy enough for me to try!

  2. Let me know what you think! If you don't like spicy, use mild instead of regular Rotel. Even the mild Rotel has a good kick to it, so sometimes I cut back to 1 can if little kids will be dining with us.
