Taco Soup

I love this recipe. It is a quick meal in the instant pot or an easy one to throw in the slow cooker in the morning and let cook all day (making the house smell DELICIOUS!) Everyone always loves it.

  • Turn instant pot to saute and cook ground turkey and onions with taco seasoning, ranch dressing mix, pepper, salt, and can of diced tomatoes with green chilis.
  • Once turkey is cooked through, add rinsed and drained pinto and black beans and water.
  • Seal lid and set Instant Pot to "soup" for 10 minutes.
  • When time is up, you can do a quick release on pressure or allow for natural pressure release.


Serve with cheese, sour cream, sliced green onions, and tortilla chips on top.

Stove Top Method

This can easily be made on the stove top (saute the ground beef as described above and then bring to a simmer).  It can be served after simmering for approximately 15 minutes, but is better if the flavors have time to develop for an hour or more.  Just keep an eye on the liquid level and, if needed, add chicken broth.  


Slow Cooker Method

It will also cook great in a slow cooker for 4 or more hours on low.  Again, just saute the ground beef mixture as described above and then transfer to the slow cooker.

While It's Cooking

I love cooking. Always have. As a busy mother of two young kids, oftentimes the best time I have to pick up a cookbook or explore a new idea is while food is cooking. Sometimes I use that time to explore more about the meal I am preparing - the food, the traditions, the culture. Sometimes I use that time to figure out what I'm going to cook next and delve deeper into ingredients and techniques to experiment with. Usually while I'm cooking my family leaves me alone in the kitchen and I can enjoy a rare moment to myself. One of my favorite times of the day is "While It's Cooking."
