Welcome, beautiful souls, to our delightful virtual kitchen at El Reno Ok! Today, we are ready to tantalize your taste buds with our mouthwatering seven can taco soup recipe. This dish is not only bursting with flavors but is also a favorite for our beloved Taco Tuesdays. The best part? You can whip up this delectable soup using pantry ingredients and either cook it on the stove or simmer it in the slow cooker. Let us show you just how effortless it is to prepare this heavenly creation.
Personalize Your Taco Soup
What we absolutely adore about this recipe is its versatility. You have the freedom to personalize it with your choice of beans and tomatoes. Whether you prefer black beans, pinto beans, or white beans, the choice is entirely yours. Additionally, you can select between diced tomatoes in chipotle or opt for the delightful flavors of rotel. Let your creativity shine and make this taco soup truly your own.
The Magic Begins
To get started, grab a medium onion and give it a good dice. This key ingredient adds a wonderful depth of flavor to our dish. In a large skillet or a heavy-bottomed pot like a dutch oven, brown one pound of ground beef. Alternatively, you can utilize leftover ground beef or taco meat for a delightful twist. Once the beef is almost cooked, add the diced onion and cook for a couple of minutes to soften it. As the aroma fills your kitchen, toss in two cloves of minced garlic for that extra kick.
A Symphony of Flavors
Now, it’s time to bring out the flavors that will make your taste buds sing. Add three tablespoons of our homemade taco seasoning to the beef and onion mixture. If you prefer, you can also use one packet of store-bought taco seasoning. Stir it in and then sprinkle in one packet of hidden valley ranch dressing seasoning mix. The combination of these seasonings will take your soup to the next level.
If you are using a slow cooker, transfer the beef and onion mixture to the insert. Then, begin adding the seven cans of ingredients that make this soup divine. Start with one can of diced tomatoes in chipotle or rotel, followed by one can of fire-roasted diced tomatoes. Next, add one can of beef broth for added richness. To complete the ensemble, incorporate three cans of your chosen beans (black, white, and pinto, perhaps) and one can of corn (fresh or frozen). Give it all a good mix and bring it to a gentle boil.
The Finishing Touch
Once the flavors have melded together into a symphony of taste, reduce the heat and let the soup simmer on the stove for 30 to 40 minutes until it is heated through. If you prefer to cook it in a slow cooker, set it to low heat for two to three hours. The beauty of this recipe is that you can prepare it in the morning and let it simmer all day, creating an enticing aroma that will welcome you home.
A Hearty and Protein-Packed Delight
Our taco soup is not only a treat for your taste buds but also offers a healthy dose of protein from the beans and beef. So, go ahead and savor this delicious and nutritious meal with your loved ones.
