I love meals where I open up a few cans of ingredients, dump, and the dish is practically done.

While this soup does have a few additional steps, it really is almost that easy!

This creamy taco soup is comforting and delicious and you’ll love the richness that the cream cheese adds.

Recipe Tips and Substitutions

Suggested toppings for this soup are tortilla strips, shredded cheese, lime juice or lime wedge, chopped avocado, cilantro, and a dollop of sour cream for extra creaminess!

You can always use ground turkey instead of ground beef in this recipe like I do.

The cream cheese needs to be at room temperature for the creamiest texture. If it’s not at room temperature, it make take longer to melt and your soup may not be as smooth as you want it.

If you don’t like the taste or texture, check out these great ingredients to substitute for cream cheese.

You can take this soup to the next level by adding 1 1/2 cups of cooked rice or noodles after you add the cream cheese.

This soup would also be a great use for leftover taco meat. Just skip the first step, omit the taco seasoning, and add in the taco meat with the rest of the soup ingredients before you simmer. So easy!
