Fast Taco Soup

It's a fiesta in a bowl! If you like a little spicy heat, add a seeded, chopped jalapeno along with the beef or a pinch of chili powder along with the taco seasoning.

Servings: 4


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 can corn, drained
  • 1 (15-ounce) can dark red kidney beans (do not drain)
  • 4 cups low-sodium tomato juice
  • 1 package taco seasoning
  • Tortilla chips, for garnish
  • Shredded cheese, for garnish


Heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the beef and cook until no longer pink and starting to brown. Drain well and set aside.

Meanwhile, combine the remaining ingredients except the garnishes in a large pot and bring to a boil.

Add the hamburger to the pot and simmer for about 10 minutes. Serve with crushed tortilla chips and shredded cheese.
