Tips for Making This Recipe
To make my life easier I always keep bags of frozen precooked ground beef in my freezer. I buy big family packs, cook them all up at one time and then portion it out into 1 pound bags of ground beef and freeze it. It really makes life so much easier then having to cook the ground beef every time I need it. If you have a busy household like ours then this might be the perfect solution to your house as well.
If you do not have precooked ground beef on hand, then you will need to cook your ground beef in a skillet before making this low carb taco soup recipe.
Whenever I make Taco anything I always use homemade Taco Seasoning. You can buy the packets but I have found the flavors are much better when I make my own. I make a big batch of it and store it in a spice jar.
There are many different crockpots out there, but personally I like the Programable Crockpot. I can set the cook time and then when the cook time is done, it automatically switches over to the warm setting to keep the food warm with out continuing to cook it.
If you want this Low Carb Taco soup to have more spicy kick to it, you can add an additional can of green chilis. I tend to keep things on the low end for spicy in our house because a few of the kiddos are not fans of anything spicy, but it is really easy to add an additional kick to this taco soup recipe.
If you are like me and forget about making dinner because time slips away from you and you have to run a kiddo to an activity, this one is great! You can dumb everything in the crockpot, set it for 2 hours on high and dinner will be done when you get home! If you have actually planned dinner you will want to make this one for 4 hours on low. Also if you are a good planner, please send some of your planning skills my way because most days things are on a whim once dinner time hits and I think I might lose my mind! LOL

How to Serve Taco Soup
When we have taco soup for dinner I like to top it with shredded cheese and sour cream.
Can I freeze Taco Soup?
Yes you can! Freezing Taco soup is easy!
Pour soup into freezer safe bag or containers and seal lightly, remove the air from the bags if using bags. If you are using freezer bags lay them flat when freezing to make for easier storage. Soup will keep in the freezer for 4-6 months.
To reheat the frozen taco soup, place the bag or container in the fridge overnight to thaw. Then reheat in a pot on the stove over medium heat.
We also have this Stove top version of Taco Soup that has all the amazing flavors of this soup, but cooked on the stove.

Comments & Reviews
We really enjoyed the taco soup! Very good flavor. I cooked it in the crock pot on low for 5 hrs and the onions did not soften–they were chewy. So my suggestion would be to pre-cook the onions while browning the ground beef if you plan to slow cook the soup on low. I recommend this recipe!

I made this tonight on the stove rather than crockpot. It was delicious. I used ground venison rather than ground beef. So good!!!
oh man my husband would love this!
The soup was awesome! I doubled the recipe and it came out wonderful !
Jerry Pate says
I made this and my fiance and I absolutely love it!!!
Delicious, thank you for the recipe! I added a teaspoon of Siracha sauce to my bowl for a little kick! Yum!
Deb Christensen says
I made this for my daughter and I can’t say enough good about this taco soup!!! I kept tasting it and finally decided I needed to have a bowl. Oh my gosh. It is my new favorite soup! I made it all winter long and put it into freezer bowls so I could have it whenever I got a crave for it. It freezes really well. I’m sure I will make it this summer too. Who says soup is just for the winter months???
Everyone who tries this loves it and they usually ask for the recipe. Plus…it is really healthy. You don’t have to be on the KETO diet to enjoy it. This is a 10 star soup as far as I’m concerned.
Im so glad you enjoyed it! it is such a hit in my house as well.
Thank you so much for this recipe!! I thought this was fantastic. I just made this, am eating it now! For people with an Instant Pot, I browned the meat first and then cooked everything (except the cream cheese) in the Instant Pot for 25 minutes. After a quick release, I added a chopped red bell pepper and the cream cheese, let it come to pressure with a zero minute cook time, then did another quick release. Perfection, thank you SO much! <3!

This was excellent. I didn’t have rotel or chiles, so I just used a can of tomatoes. And I added a little frozen spinach. I browned the meat on the stove and then put everything in the instant pot for 8 minutes. My family hasn’t stopped talking about it!
