This Quick and Easy Taco Soup satisfies the whole family for very little effort. It’s the perfect delicious weeknight meal for busy families.



  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 and 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 (1 ounce) package taco seasoning mix
  • 1 (1 ounce) package Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 2 (10 ounce) cans diced tomatoes with green chiles (I use Rotel)
  • 1 (15 ounce) can kidney beans
  • 1 (15 ounce) can pinto beans
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can stewed tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 (15.5 ounce) can hominy
  • 1 (15.25 ounce) can whole kernel corn


Topping Options:

  • Shredded cheese
  • Sour cream
  • Chopped green onions
  • Tortilla chips


  1. In a large pot, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add chopped onion and sauté until tender. Add ground beef and cook until browned, breaking it into crumbles as it cooks. Stir in the taco seasoning mix and ranch dressing mix until well combined with the browned meat.
  2. Add all remaining ingredients (do not drain the liquid from the cans). Bring the soup to a simmer and then reduce the heat to low and let simmer for at least 20 minutes, stirring occasionally until heated through.
  3. Serve with shredded cheese, sour cream, chopped green onions, and tortilla chips.
