Moira Mitchell's Quick and Easy Taco Soup


Yet another of my mother's recipes I enjoyed as a kid! This is a tasty and flavorful soup that is easy to make and works as a great lunch or dinner meal. I can remember as a kid that I liked to pour the hot soup over the chips and cheese and play with the cheese as it melted (who says you can't play with your food?) I hope you enjoy this soup as much as I have and make good family memories with it.

  • 1 (14 ounce) can vegetable broth (such as Swanson®)

  • 2 (15.25 ounce) cans Mexican-style corn with red and green peppers

  • 2 (15 ounce) cans black beans, drained and rinsed

  • 1 (10 ounce) container chunky salsa

  • 1 (8 ounce) package tortilla chips

  • 1 (8 ounce) package shredded Mexican cheese blend


  1. Combine vegetable broth, corn, black beans, and salsa in a pot over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil and cook until heated through, about 5 minutes.

  2. Crush tortilla chips into individual bowls and top with Mexican cheese. Ladle soup over chips and cheese.

Cook's note:

Have a variety of chip choices; tortilla, Fritos(R), or Doritos(R) chips are a good idea. You can mix and match as you go back for seconds.
