Can you make instant pot taco soup with different meat?

Yep! You can exchange the ground beef for ground chicken, ground turkey, or even ground sausage. They all work the same but will give you a variety of flavors.

Additionally, you could also use shredded chicken. I recommend using shredded rotisserie chicken to save time.

Can I make this vegetarian taco soup?

Sure! You will need to omit the ground beef and swap the beef broth for vegetable broth. It’s still going to be really hearty and satisfying.

Can you make taco soup in the slow cooker?

Absolutely! You’ll need to brown the ground beef and onion on the stovetop then add it to the slow cooker. Add the rest of the ingredients (except for toppings) and cook on low for 6 hours and high for 4 hours.

What toppings should I serve with this taco soup in instant pot recipe?

I feel like the toppings should help enhance the flavors of the soup! You can also add a ton of variety to the dish when you add different toppings. Everyone can get what they want. Here are some suggestions to try:

Sour Cream
Shredded Cheese
Sliced Green Onions
Sliced Jalapenos
Pico de Gallo
Tortilla Chips

Can you cook taco soup on the stove top?

Sure! I recommend a dutch oven because they are large enough for the soup. Plus, I just love mine!
