Tasty taco soup


What's Cookin!


Easy as 1,2,3-ABC’s..baby you and me. Every once in a while you get a song stuck in your head when you are cooking. To me that is a sign you are enjoying the process. I can’t say I have always been this happy when cooking in the kitchen. In fact, many of days when my boys were small I dreaded it. The days were long enough and then came “what to make for dinner tonight”. I so wish I had the Instant Pot 10 years ago. Although, I don’t even think they had it back then.

Any hoot, today I am sharing how to make taco soup in the Instant Pot. This recipe is actually a variation of Paula Deen’s taco soup recipe I found on either the Food network or another foodie website. I can’t recall exactly. It was so simple though. Iactually remembered everything I needed at the grocery store. I didn’t add in black olives or onions. You can tweak and add in whatever you like to this recipe. Make it your own. However, the taco seasoning and the ranch dressing packet are a must. I never used ranch dressing packet in my soups before. It was so good and so different.

Step 1

First saute your meat in a drizzle of olive oil. I always get my pot warm before I throw in the meat to saute.

Step 2

Using your tempered glass lid, place lid on top and periodically saute me around with your spatula being sure all is lightly brown and cooked.

Step 3

Next, add in the rest of your ingredients including most all the juices in the can.

Step 5

Place tempered glass lid back on pot and set your Instant pot to simmer mode. Simmer mode is actually saute mode in LOW setting. Use your adjustment button and plus and minus options to get to the low setting. Simmer for 35 minutes stirring occasionally, and of course having full view of your yummy soup all the while. Enjoy!

Step 6

Serve topped with avocado, shredded cheese, sour cream, etc. Whatever toppings of you choice. I did simple avocado. DELISH!
