Warm up this winter with this quick to the table satisfying taco soup with beef and black beans. (Sponsored by Winking Girl)
When Julie from Winking Girl! Foods offered to share her skillet sauces, I was more than happy to accept her offer. I’d been drooling over Mexiacn soup recipes on Pinterest for weeks and couldn’t wait to give one a try myself.
After looking at the ingredients in Winking Girl’s taco skillet sauce, I knew I had the base for a taco soup that would have those Mexican seasonings I love. The sauce contains tomato puree, apple cider vinegar, onion, sugar, garlic, sea salt, ancho chile, and spices. Wholesome ingredients I can feel good about. No added preservatives and ingredients I can’t name.
Naturally, I used my beloved Instant Pot to keep my taco soup making task as simple as possible. After sauteing onions, peppers, and beef, all I needed was the taco sauce to add flavor, along with a can of chopped tomatoes and black beans.
This is a spicy taco soup topped with a few crunchy tortilla chips, avocado, sour cream, fresh cilantro and lime that rivals any high-calorie taco you could make any day!
Thank you Winking Girl! Your sauces are not only tasty for taco fillings, but they make a delicious taco soup!
