This soup is
- Easy to make
Why should you make this in an Instant Pot?
- Yes, we can definitely make this soup in a slow cooker or over a stovetop and I have nothing against the Indian style pressure cooker but Instant Pot allows multitasking especially when you expect guests or during parties.
- Also, if you do not like standing near the stove constantly while making dishes, trust Instant Pot saves you big time.
- In Instant Pot you can thaw all the ingredients, select your mode of cooking, and manage other tasks then.
Can I freeze this?
Taco soup freeze very well. Transfer it in a freezer-safe container and freeze for up to 3 months.
I recommend freezing it in individual portions so you can thaw one portion when needed.
Can I use ground turkey instead of ground beef?
You can use ground turkey, ground chicken or ground pork to make this soup.
Ground beef is rich in fat and hence the resultant soup is super flavorful. But feel free to use any meat of your choice.
You can replace beef with mutton or chicken mince also.
Oh, you can go as versatile as you want. Personally, a few of my favorite add-ons are:
- Sour Cream
- Cheddar Cheese
- Tortilla Chips
- Lemon Wedges
With that sorted, do make this decadent soup super soon and drop your feedback for its recipe through your comments, okay?
