This recipe for Chicken Taco Soup will change your life if you appreciate Mexican food as much as I do. It’s perfect for chilly, gloomy days outside, though I’ve been known to make it all year round because it’s so tasty.
When I say that this is the best taco soup there is, I’m not even joking. Everyone loves it, and since it comes together so quickly, the chicken taco soup frequently disappears before your eyes.

How is Chicken Taco Soup made?
Making this soup is really simple. Let me quickly sum it up for you.
I begin by sautéing green bell peppers, onions, and garlic in the pot. I add the chicken once everything has softened and give it a quick swirl.
Jalapenos, corn, homemade taco seasoning, and of course beans (you can’t make taco soup without beans! ), are all added to the pot at the very end. The chicken is cooked through and the flavors can meld in only a few minutes of simmering.
It’s just that simple!
Making this soup literally just takes 30 minutes.
To achieve the correct consistency, I used roughly 1 1/2 to 2 cups of broth, but you can add more or less. This soup is quite mild; if you want to amp it up, add some sliced jalapenos, cayenne pepper, or even chili flakes.
How should chicken taco soup be accompanied by sides?
Obviously influenced by Mexico! You may serve this chicken taco soup with Mexican Stuffed Peppers, Black Bean Quinoa Salad, or Mexican Cauliflower Rice if you want something, particularly healthy and low carb.
Because of how hearty this soup is, it also tastes well on its own.
If you’d like, you could turn this into chicken taco pasta soup by adding some rice or even pasta. Or you could simply scoop it off and eat more tacos. The entire family will want seconds in either case.
The best toppings, however, should not be overlooked. It’s completely worth the time to prepare them.
My favorites include sour cream, crushed Doritos or tortilla chips, chopped red onions, and a little cilantro. Each bowl’s flavors are perfectly rounded off by a squeeze of lime juice.
