This crockpot taco soup recipe was one of my favorite dinners that my Mom would make when I was growing up!

Over the years, I’ve made several different versions of the soup, from a One Pot Turkey Taco Soup, to a Vegetarian Black Bean Quinoa Taco Soup, to a Slow Cooker Cheesy Turkey Taco Soup. They’re all delicious, but when I’m in the mood for a taste of home, I always go back to this simple taco soup recipe my Mom used to make!

What to eat with Taco Soup?

Growing up, we would serve tortilla chips on the side and I would dip the chips into the taco soup. Yummy!

As an adult, I’ve served the soup with both Jalapeno Cheddar Cornbread and Jalapeno Cheddar Focaccia Bread. I just love the combination of jalapeno and cheddar cheese breads dipped into the best taco soup ever!

How to freeze taco soup?

This recipe feeds 8 people, if you’re making it for only 2 or 4 people, you can easily freeze the rest to use later. Simply place the soup you want to freeze in freezer-safe plastic bags or plastic containers and place in the freezer for up to 6 months.

To re-heat from the freezer, simply add it back to a crockpot set to low for 2 hours, or add it to a large pot on the stove over medium heat and simmer for 20-30 minutes, or until completely thawed and heated through.
