I am totally addicted to soups even in the summer. That when I hide out in the house working like crazy but need a good recipe for the instant pot like Instant Pot Taco Soup. I don’t want to heat up the entire house with the oven,. Texas and the humidity here is far too hot for that. But the soup needs to have that feeling of summer. Where while I eat it I can wait a fun movie like say Mamma Mia and chow down on a good bowl of hearty goodness.
Or maybe catch up on an episode of Vikings between video shoots. My job isn’t just this blog. I create video for business and such along with photography. Just depends on what is needed. I do just about everything these days. This instant pot taco soup is one I can put on the night before, have it for dinner, and for lunch the next day. It’s nice to have a recipe that can feed four and then also lunch the next day.
Another thing about this taco soup is that it doesn’t all come from a can or have that crazy ranch seasoning in it. This will taste like a taco in your bowl. Seriously! You can top it with cheese, sour cream, red onions, and even avocado. Look I have to say I like using the avocado on top. I probably add a 1/3 of an avocado to each bowl I each. But I grew up with and avocado tree. Easy for me to eat it by the pounds.
On top of it you can take out the corn to make this soup corn free or take out cheese for it to be dairy free. The soup in itself is also gluten free which is pretty darn cool for dietary needs. This Instant Pot Taco Soup with be a easy favorite in your house if your family loves taco. Great for taco Tuesday too!
