Seven Can Chicken Tortilla Soup

Not a lot of time for dinner? We got you covered. This Seven Can Chicken soup comes together in literally no time at all . . . and the awesome thing is that you can use pantry ingredients to make this easy meal!

Taco Soup is the one of the best soups ever. Well, at least I think so. You can make this soup out of everything in your pantry. No freezer or fridge items needed!

Now this Taco Soup comes together in a matter of minutes! I can’t think of one person who couldn’t use a fast meal!

For this recipe, start with all of your canned items. Add your spices and mix them together. Here are the canned items you will need:

  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1 can sweet corn, drained
  • 1 can chicken breast, drained
  • 1 can green enchilada sauce
  • 1 can chicken broth

If you don’t like all the ingredients it is very easy to switch them out. You can use any kind of beans that you like. If you don’t like corn, you don’t have to add it – just add another can of tomatoes.  You can use cooked chicken instead of canned and you can use red enchilada sauce instead of green if you want. Make it how YOU like it!

One thing I love about this 7 Can Taco Soup is that you can make it in your stock pot, slow cooker or pressure cooker.

How to make Taco Soup in the Stock Pot:
Take all the canned ingredients and spices and dump them in the stock pot. Turn on your stove to medium high heat and cook until all the soup is heated through.

How to make taco soup in the slow cooker:

Take the canned ingredients and spices and put them in the slow cooker. Put the lid on, and cook on low 2-3 hours. You can cook it longer if you need to.

How to make taco soup in the INSTANT POT:

Add all of the ingredients into your Instant Pot and put the lid on. Make sure your knob is on sealing, then push manual. Make the timer go up to 4 minutes. When it pressurizes and the timer is done, switch your knob to venting or quick release.

The Taco Soup can be made into a freezer meal very easily! Just just have to dump all the ingredients into a freezer zip lock bag and freeze it! The night before you are ready to cook it, put it in your fridge so it will thaw. Watch the Youtube video below to see how to put it together (and to see my trick of how I make freeze meals!)

Now the thing that makes taco soup delicious is the toppings! Some of my favorite toppings are sour cream, tomatoes, tortilla chips, avocado, green onions, and of course cheese!

    • You can substitute the Red Enchilada sauce for the green, but the taste will change because the ingredients are different in those sauces. Green enchilada sauce is generally a mixture of green tomatillos and green chilies along with other ingredients such as spices, onions, garlic, and vinegar. Red enchilada sauce is typically made from a variety of red chilies, vinegar and other spices, onions, and garlic. Some "quick" versions of red enchilada sauce may actually use red tomato sauce or paste as a base. Depending on your taste preferences, red or green enchilada sauce can work well on a variety of different enchilada dishes.
