Taco soup is one of my favorite meals to make especially when the weather starts to get a little cooler.

It’s so easy to put together and has so much flavor. It’s also naturally gluten free and dairy free which is my favorite kind of meal!

The best part is that even my kiddos love it. That’s how you know a recipe is a winner in my house!

I typically make this taco soup in my Instant Pot. I love having this option because it means I can have a flavorful soup ready in about 40 minutes.

If you don’t have an Instant Pot, you can also make this recipe in your slow cooker. I’ve included cooking instruction for both!

I like to serve this taco soup with chopped cilantro, diced avocados, and of course some delicious corn chips.

So let’s talk about what you need to make it!
