Taco Soup

I really like Taco Soup. I don't make it very often because it makes way too much for our small household. This soup is really good on a cold day. And it is really good for parties. You can have people bring the things to put in the soup. Everybody can add the things they like. Allan hates cilantro, I love it. So with this soup, we're both happy.

Taco Soup

4-5 slices bacon cooked and crumbled
1 onion
1 16 oz. can of chicken broth
1 16 oz can of diced tomatoes
1 16 oz can of black beans (rinsed and drained)
2 carrots chopped
2 potatoes diced
1 clove garlic (minced)
1 tsp. sugar
1½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. pepper

Combine above ingredients for soup.

Add condiments to soup buffet style:
Chopped boiled egg
cooked bacon (crumbled)
crushed corn chips
grated cheddar cheese
Monterrey jack cheese
chopped avocado
sour cream
chopped cilantro
garbanzo beans


  1. you didn't make this soup when we were young, and there were lots of us. . . hum. . . is this a new recipe?

  2. I did too, just not very often. You just don't remember.
