This colourful beef taco soup freezer meal can be cooked in the Instant Pot or slow cooker. It is so easy to throw together. Hearty soups are great for cold winter days or drizzly summer ones.
It’s nice to have a few bags of this soup in the freezer. It’s such a simple but filling meal and I always love a meal that has multiple cooking options.
Beef Taco Soup Recipe:
- 1 cup ground beef, browned
- 1/2 cup diced onion
- 12 oz. can kernel corn
- 14 oz. can diced tomatoes
- 14 oz. can pinto or black beans
- 3 tsp. taco seasoning
- salt, pepper
- 1 cup water or beef broth*
Assembly instructions: Place all the ingredients into a large resealable freezer bag. Remove the excess air and seal. Freeze.
Instant Pot Cooking Instructions: Add the bag contents thawed or frozen into instant pot. Add 1 cup water or beef broth. Saute for 5 minutes. Lock the cover into place and seal the steam nozzle. Choose the soup setting and set for 10 minutes. Let pressure release naturally for 5 minutes before releasing any remaining pressure.
Slow Cooker Cooking Instructions: Take the bag out of the freezer and thaw. Add at least one cup of water or beef broth. Cook in the crock pot on low for 4-5 hours.
*This soup is quite thick. It has more of a stew consistency especially the next day as leftovers. If you prefer more of a soupy soup, just add more water or beef broth.
You can serve this soup topped with shredded cheese, green onions, and sour cream or with buns on the side.
