My grandson Jason gives me ingredient money to make him 3-4 crock pots of soup each month. He works for the state and it's perfect to just grab from the freezer and heat for lunch. I keep back two servings of each too... just for me!

One of his staples is Chicken Taco Soup. It's the easiest one I make and only takes about 2 hours vs. 6-8 hours, plus I make it on the stove rather than the crock pot.

This is an inexpensive "dump recipe" - throw it in the pot, stir, then it's done! I had it in my head until I was pressed for time one night. My husband offered to make it, but I couldn't tell him what the amounts were.

Years ago I used to make a taco soup that contained hamburger, taco seasoning, tomatoes, and Velveeta. I can't remember the rest of the ingredients, or the directions. I do know it contained "no" Ranch dressing. I can't stand Ranch dressing! All of the recipes I have found on-line contain Ranch dressing. If anyone has the recipe or something similar I would appreciate it. Thanks.

I never knew Ranch Dressing was a normal ingredient in Taco Soup. Here's the recipe I've been using. Hope you enjoy it.

Saute beef in a stock pan with minced onion and clove of garlic, add salt and pepper to taste, drain fat. Add water, start with 4 and add more later if needed.

This is a modification of a standard recipe that reduces the salt and eliminates packaged seasonings so you can vary the amount of seasonings to suit your taste for a fresher, healthier dish.

DH likes for me to throw stuff in a pot and make impromptu soup. Today I decided to brown some ground beef as I would for chili or spaghetti. I usually use canned tomatoes and a small can of tomato sauce and then just start throwing stuff in, such as, potatoes, onions, peas, carrots, etc.

This time I decided to toss in a packet of taco seasoning mix. Voila! Taco soup. Delicioso by the way.

Pour all of the cans into the crockpot, don't drain anything! Add in the seasoning, water and onion; stir. Submerge the chicken breast into the mix and cook on low for 8 hours/high for 4 hours.

I love Mexican foods but dislike soup using chicken. The weather got cold here so I decided to make tacos in soup form.

CommentWas this helpful?Helpful? Yes

Combine all in large slow cooker and stir. If you like it hot add 1 chopped jalapeno pepper. Cover and cook on low for 4 hours.

This is so easy and so yummy! It is made of healthy ingredients, makes a lot in a short amount of time, and is very satisfying and filling.


  • 2-3 chicken breasts -cooked (cubed or shredded)
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 can pinto beans
  • 1 can corn
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1 can chicken broth
  • dash of sugar
  • 1-2 limes or lime juice
  • corn tortilla chips
  • Optional: shredded cheese, sour cream, taco seasoning


Prepare chicken breasts, or use leftovers. Pour cans of black and pinto beans, corn, diced tomatoes, chicken broth, cooked cubed or shredded chicken breasts, and dash of sugar in a large saucepan. Heat to boiling, and reduce heat to low to keep soup warm for serving.

You can just serve or eat it how it is, or you can put tortilla chips in a bowl, squeeze lime juice on the chips and add shredded cheese and/or sour cream. Pour soup over the top and serve!

If you like taco seasoning, you can add that (I personally like it without!)

Easy Taco Lime Soup

I'm a vegetarian so I'll leave out the chicken, but besides the meat, This recipe sounds SO very YUMMY! It was the lime juice that called my name! I love things that are a bit tart. I can't wait to try it. I'll make up a batch and freeze 1 cup portions in zip-lock baggies to microwave later. Thank you for posting it! (04/26/2009)
