Taco soup is actually pretty healthy. It’s broth based and includes a good about of veggies and beans in it. We are taking 2 types of beans, tomatoes, and corn.
for the meat, I used ground beef in this version. But you could easily change that to ground chicken or turkey. You could even skip browning meat and just add in some cooked rotissere chicken. Change it up to what works for you.
There are some great seasonings used it it too. You have the usual taco seasoning, but I also like to add dry ranch dressing mix to my taco soup. This includes opion powder and salt too. You can add some cayenne pepper in there if you want some added heat. For my family, I leave it out.
Last is the toppings for this Instant Pot Taco Soup. If you want to go heathy opt for green onion, cilantro, or diced avocado to top your soup with. If you want to goo all out then include shredded cheese, sour cream, and tortilla chips too.Print
