Instant Pot Taco Soup


The Instant Pot Taco soup is one of the most popular recipes on Corrie Cooks and one of the easiest soups you can make.

This is one of those cozy and comforting soups we all need when the weather outside is just dull and awful. You will fall in love with the flavor and the richness of the soup.

The soup is bursting in flavors and it is loaded with protein coming from the ground beef and beans.

Can I replace the red beans?

Yes! For this Instant Pot taco soup recipe I used red beans, but you can use garbanzo, black beans, brown beans, or any kind you have.

Can I replace the beef?

Yes! The beef is not mandatory and if you want, you can try making the soup with pork or spicy pork sausage.

Whatever you choose you just can’t go wrong as this soup is just perfect!

How to serve?

Serve it with some sour cream on top just to balance out the heat.

You can add some bread aside but personally the soup itself it’s enough for me :]

  1. This was super! (Or should I say souper?) Couldn’t resist adding a clove of crushed garlic and a chopped red capsicum. Served with a side of tortilla chips + chopped avocado with a drop of olive oil and a few drops of lemon. Thanks for the recipe – just the thing for one of those colder nights!

  2. My husband said to give this recipe a gold star! It’s definitely a keeper. It was even better the second night after the flavors melded together. I added some chopped carrots to change it up a bit the second night, and that was a great addition.

  3. Hi Corrie,
    Certainly one of the best soup recipe. I put in one OXO veg cube to give it an additional taste. yummy yummy

    1. No I didn’t, because I think a little of the fat adds flavor and I used a pretty lean ground beef. You could drain the grease though, if you want.

  4. I liked this quick and easy soup that I made for lunch one day. The ingredient list has chopped onions, but they are not in the steps. I assume they get sautéed with the beef but I was past that step when I noticed my poor lonely onions on the counter.
