Make Ahead Taco Soup

I love this recipe! It's super easy, and it's great when you need to feed a large group of people, but don't have the time to make a big meal. This make ahead taco soup comes together in a matter of minutes. The perfect meal!

The Ingredients

1 pound lean ground beef
1 cup onion, chopped
2 cans tomato sauce
2 cans stewed tomatoes (undrained)
2 cans kidney beans (undrained)
1 package taco seasoning mix
1-3 cups water (I usually add about 1 cup, but if I'm feeding a lot of people, then I add more. It just depends on which consistency you like best too.)

tortilla chips
cheddar cheese
green onions
sour cream

At Ten O'Clock

Brown ground beef with onion. In a crock pot, combine tomato sauce, stewed tomatoes, kidney beans and taco seasoning. Add ground beef and onion. Add water until desired consistency. Cook on low until ready to serve.


In a large skillet, brown ground beef with onion. Add everything else. Bring to boiling, reduce heat and simmer about 30 minutes. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Before Serving

Top with cheddar cheese, green onions, sour cream, and tortilla chips. Enjoy!

Family Approval
This is delicious! It's perfect to take to parties in a crock pot. My whole family loves it except my extremely picky oldest son. He has to eat other leftovers on the nights we eat taco soup :)
