Make Homemade Taco Seasoning:

This recipe calls for a packet of taco seasoning.  Did you know you can make your own taco seasoning with the ingredients you already have in your pantry? We love making our own seasoning blend.

It is so much cheaper and better for you than store bought seasoning mixes. We keep a jar of this ready to go for recipes like this.

Having Homemade Taco Seasoning on hand, makes this soup recipe even easier.

7 Can Taco Soup Variations:

  • Change the Meat – Instead of using canned chicken, you can use rotisserie chicken, use ground beef, or ground turkey. This a great recipe to use leftover meat.
  • Enchilada Sauce – We used green enchilada sauce but you can easily use red enchilada sauce. To make it spicier, use hot enchilada sauce.
  • Green Chiles – A can of green chiles would be delicious in this recipe. Instead of diced tomatoes you could use a can of rotel.
  • Change the Beans – Feel free to use beans what you like. You can even double a certain bean if you prefer.
