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

  1. 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!!!!

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

  3. 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! 🙂

  4. 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! 🙂

    1. Thank you! The condensed soup was actually not that bad…. until you get to the margarine part in the ingredient list.

    1. 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. 🙂

  5. 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.

  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!

    1. This one doesn’t make as much as my other soups but if I were to guess it makes 4-5 one cup servings. Sorry hope this helps! 🙂

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

    1. Yes this is by all of the soups. I think mine was Campbell’s condensed soup brand! Let me know if you find it and how it turns out! 🙂

  8. 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!
