Beefy Nacho Soup

I love quick and easy soups especially when this is such a busy time of year.  I made this soup in the morning and put it in the crockpot on warm all day.  I took a little bite before I put it in the crockpot and I feel in love.  This soup was so yummy!   I couldn’t wait to come home from being busy all day and eat this delicious soup with my family.  This was a hit!  Everyone in my family loved it and my sister begged me to take the rest home to her a hubby.  This is a soup recipe I will be making over and over again!

Rating: 5 stars  Difficulty of Recipe: 2 stars
Things that I changed: Nothing
Things that I would do differently next time: Possibly add one more can of the diced tomatoes.   I love diced tomatoes.
Will I make this again?  Yes

1 lb lean ground beef
1 package taco seasoning
1 can (10 3/4 ounce) condensed nacho cheese soup
1 can (10 oz) diced tomatoes and green chilis, undrained
1 1/2 cups milk
3/4 cup sharp cheddar cheese

1.  In a 2 quart saucepan, cook the ground beef and drain the fat.
2. Add the remaining ingredients into the saucepan.
3. Cook for about 8 – 10 minutes until thoroughly heated through.  At this point I kept warm in crockpot for a few hours.
4. Serve with sharp cheddar cheese on top and crushed tortilla chips.

  1. Sounds like yummy comfort food for a chilly day.

  2. A variation of this is in my slow cooker now. I cooked diced onion & minced garlic while browning the ground beef, added a can of rinsed/drained pinto beans, & reduced the milk to 1/2 cup for a yummy dip. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

  3. Hi! This looks so yummy! I am including it in a slow cooker recipe collection here

  4. Where do you find condensed nacho soup? Is this in the soup section of most grocery stores? Ive never noticed before

  5. How many servings does this make?

  6. This was a huge hit tonight for supper! Even my 2 year old liked it. I added black beans, corn, and a little vegetable broth to thin it out. So good!

  7. MM MMM good!!

  8. Very good soup: just the right amount of spices (warmth not heat) and flavor. I used a package of fajita seasoning which I had on hand, 1 1/2 pounds of ground beef, and probably more than 3/4 cup sharp cheddar.

  9. Just made this tonight……..easy and yummy! A keeper!

  10. Do you put the sharp cheddar in the recipe or just on top?

    • Sorry I should have made the instructions more clear. You add the 3/4 sharp cheddar into the soup. Then you just sprinkle some extra cheese on top when serving. 🙂

  11. will it freeze well?

  12. You can sub the condensed soup with this recipe: 3 tbsp butter, 3 tbsp flour, 1 cup milk, 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese & salt to taste. Melt butter in a sauce pan over medium/low heat. Add flour & whisk until smooth & bubbly. Remove from heat & gradually whisk in milk to keep it smooth. Return to heat & bring to a gentle boil, whisking continuously until thickened. Add cheese & stir until melted. Add this soup to your other ingredients! 🙂

  13. I made this tonight, mostly because I had all of the ingredients on hand. Coming home from a long week to a hungry household, I skipped the crock pot part and only let it simmer until we couldn’t stand it any longer (10 minutes, maybe?) It was amazing! Will try it in a slow cooker next time, but really good without it too! 🙂

  14. Oh My Goodness this soup is sooooo good. Just made it and everyone loves it. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  15. Just made this soup to eat while we watch football!!!! I used ground turkey and 1/2 pound chorizo instead of the ground beef. OMG!!!!! This is the easiest and best tasting “fast “soup I have ever had! Thanks!!!!

  16. It sounds so good,we love homemade soups in the winter time.Thank you so much.

    We ordered taco soup in a restaurant one time & it was so good…a lot like this only they used chicken & white beans. Served fried tortilla strips with it & it was so good. I copied it at home & it was delicious!!!

  18. Carrie Spellerberg says:

    I plan to make this tonight. The thought of adding the black beans and corn sound like great additions. For those wondering, Campell’s has the Fiesta Nacho Cheese flavor that I picked up specifically for this recipe.

  19. This looks perfect for a warm day! Pinned!

  20. I made this tonight it was delicious!!!! It’s simple, quick, and easy! Wow!!!!!!!!

  21. Love this! I use just petite diced tomatoes, the rotel type seems to spicy for my son. I add can of tomato paste and rinsed pinto beans. THIS recipe is his favorite soup I make! Thanks so much.
