Taco soup is yummy and easy! I make this for my weekly lunches sometimes because it is filling and has plenty of fat, vegetables, and meat!

2 – 3 tbsp. olive oil
1 – 1.5 lbs. grass-fed ground beef (I use less if it’s for a night’s dinner, more if it’s for a whole week of lunch)
1/2 lb. black beans, soaked
1/2 c. onion, chopped
1 large green pepper, chopped
1 jalapeno, minced (opt.)
4 – 6 tbsp. taco seasoning
1/2 lb. mixed vegetables
1 28-oz. can crushed tomatoes (or 3 c. tomato juice)
4 – 6 cups chicken stock

Heat olive oil in a large soup pot. Add onion, beef, and pepper. Cook until veggies are soft and meat is brown. Add beans, taco seasoning, mixed vegetables, tomato juice/crushed tomatoes, and chicken broth. Let the soup cook for 1 – 2 hours, until the veggies are cooked through and flavors are melded. Serves 6 – 8.

  1. just discovered your site a couple days ago thru your emails to CHOICE:) and i like it!yum! i decided to try this for our lunch today…i added some finely chopped beef liver for some of the ground beef and used water for some of the broth as i am constantly running out of broth:) my daughter and i really enjoyed it! and spicy is good to hide the liver flavor, which is NOT my favorite, but i try to eat it:) thanks for all your posts!


  2. I love this recipe! My version is in the crockpot, but it is such an easy, healthy meal!


  3. I tried this tonight for dinner, and we really liked it! I love how simple your version is, too. Thanks!


  4. […] 2 tbsp. per lb. of meat, depending on how spicy we want it.  I also use it to easily season taco soup and chicken chili.  These are all really frugal […]
