To celebrate its uniqueness, we're bringing you our go-to taco soup recipe that you can follow to a tee or tweak to your tastes.
Now, we did say you can mix and match ingredients and we stand by our word. The ingredients we used are traditional taco additions, but you can always use turkey burger meat or chicken for protein. The cooking times might vary based on what you choose, but it's nothing you can't work around.
The best part of a taco is making it your own. While we lean towards pinto and chili beans, you can branch off the beaten path and pair kidney with regular black beans.

Playing around with spice is another great way to express your personal tastes. Consider the following to make your taco soup even more flavourful:
Last but never least is the taco soup garnish. Sour cream and shredded cheese are pretty classic, but you can also add diced avocado, tortilla chips, fresh cilantro, a slice of lime, or chopped green onions.

Building the perfect taco soup recipe is easy peasy. You can use whichever ingredients suit your preferences or use ours as a starting point. Whichever method you choose, a hearty bowl of taco soup unique to you is just a few ingredients away.
