I love soups for dinner when it’s cold outside, and this quick and easy taco soup recipe is perfect to make for your family on a chilly day. It only takes about 20 minutes to make this easy taco soup recipe.

And it can be completed even faster if you keep already cooked ground beef in your freezer. I’ll take the ground beef out of my freezer, thaw it in the microwave and then put it in the pot with the rest of the ingredients.

WHAT DO YOU EAT WITH TACO SOUP?

For our family, we like to add tortilla chips or Fritos on top. We also like to add shredded cheese and sour cream.

If you want some ideas for sides, this simple and quick taco soup would taste great with sweet cornbread, light and fluffy homemade biscuits, or easy Spanish rice.

HOW LONG IS TACO SOUP GOOD FOR?

Taco soup with cooked ground beef, when properly stored in an airtight container, will last for 3-4 days in the refrigerator. If you plan to keep it longer than that, then you’ll want to freeze it (See below).

 

CAN YOU FREEZE TACO SOUP?

Yes, you can freeze taco soup. To freeze the soup, put it in airtight containers or re-sealable freezer bags. Label the soup with the date and put it in the freezer. One tip is to freeze the taco soup in individual portions so you can take it out and eat it for lunch. The taco soup should be good in the freezer for 2-3 months.

When you are ready to use the taco soup, pull it out of the freezer and thaw it in the fridge for a few days. You can then heat it up on the stove or in the microwave. You could also put the taco soup in a slow cooker on high for 2-3 hours to heat it up.

Broccoli Cheese Soup

Broccoli Cheese Soup

I really love this Broccoli Cheese Soup. It’s one of my favorite soups!

Years ago, I made a broccoli cheese soup and I’ll admit that I didn’t love it, so I didn’t try making a broccoli cheese soup again for a while. Until recently, I tried a new recipe and I loved it!

In addition, all my kids love it. My little boy loved it so much that he had two helpings of this soup before I could even sit down to eat. So this Broccoli Cheese Soup is one you’ll want to add to your family-friendly recipes.

This Potato & Bacon Soup is now my new favorite soup to make. You will want to plan ahead and bake the potatoes earlier in the week. Or if you forget to bake the potatoes ahead of time, just poke the potatoes with a fork and microwave them on high for 5 minutes per potato.

One Pan Beef Stew

One Pan Beef Stew

We had leftover beef from a roast dinner we ate last week, so I decided to use the beef to make this Savory Beef Stew. One of the ways to save money on meat is to be creative with the leftover meat. Not only was I able to make another dinner using the leftover beef, but it also created more leftovers.

Potato Soup
6 large potatoes, diced
3-4 carrots, peeled and sliced
2-3 celery stalks, sliced
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1 can (14.5 oz.) chicken broth or dissolve 1 bouillon cube in 1 cup hot water
2 cans (12 oz.) evaporated milk
garlic salt
onion salt
salt and pepper
3 Tablespoons flour

Directions:
In a pot, boil the diced potatoes, carrots, celery, and onions for 15-20 minutes. Leave about 1 cup of the potato water in the pot and pour out the rest of the water. Add broth and evaporated milk and bring it to a boil, stirring occasionally. Season with the garlic salt, onion salt, salt and pepper until you like the taste.

In a small bowl, add the flour. Mix in cold water until it becomes a paste consistency. Add this to the soup to thicken it. Add more of a flour paste if you want the soup thicker. Let the soup simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until thickened.
