Recipe: Taco Soup

June 3, 2016

Are you following me on Snapchat? If you are not, you should stop reading this post (that is the only time I'd ever say this) and go to Snapchat and follow me. I'm fun, I'm promise!

Looking for step-by-step recipes, pictures of Henry and old school rap? Doesn't that just sound like a dream. It is. Trust me, follow me, like me.

Anyways, if you were following me on Snapchat about a week ago, you would have watched me make taco soup. Have I told you lately how much I love soup, especially spicy soup. I love it. Plus, it's been raining in Denver for weeks so soup has been necessary.

A little preface to taco soup. It's literally the spiciest thing ever. When I make it again, I'm going to modify it. I'll put the original recipe in black and then add in my new modifications in red. Go with the red. Trust me.

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil 
  • 1 medium red onion, diced 
  • 2 bell peppers diced  
  • 2 lbs ground beef  
  • 4 tablespoons chili powder - 2 tablespoons chili powder 
  •  3 tablespoons cumin - 1 1/2 tablespoons cumin 
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt  
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper  
  • 1 teaspoon paprika  
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder  
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder  ¼ teaspoon cayenne powder (optional)- don't use this. 
  • 4oz cans diced green chiles - I used tomatoes with green chilies 
  • 18 oz diced tomatoes - See above, I subbed tomatoes for tomatoes with green chilies
  • 4 cups beef broth 
  • 1 can tomato paste, just to thicken it up a bit
How to Make:  
  1. Put everything in the crock pot.  
  2. Cook on low for 8 hours or, if you are like me, until you're home from work.  
  3. Break up the meat, stir.  
  4. Top with avocado and cheese.  
  5. Enjoy
Guys, this is why I'm a bad blogger. I posted on snapchat and forgot to save them. Weeps.

  1. Recipe looks amazing, as always! Happy to be following you on Snapchat now! Looking forward to those raps! :) Happy weekending

  2. Small world...I actually just made a batch of taco soup for a freezer meal last week!

  3. Looks like a great recipe. I might leave out the bell pepper.

  4. I'm a soupaholic lately, which is odd given how hot it is now. I totally get forgetting to download the pics from snap. lol

  5. I love making soup - even in the summer. Cooking it in the crockpot sends me to heaven. Thanks for sharing a new recipe!

  6. Simple. "Put everything in the crock pot." This is why we are friends. :)


I love hearing from all of you and greatly appreciate all your feedback and comments! xx Kristen
