My Tortellini Taco Soup makes the perfect quick fix weeknight dinner for the whole family!
It’s always a pleasure partnering with Old El Paso to bring you new Mexican Style family recipes. This is the best time of year to make big pots of soup. We are loving this fun twist on taco soup. The tortellini brings a great layer of flavor and the kids go nuts for it. This soup takes just minutes to prepare, perfect for busy school weeknights. Add this one to your meal plan, you’ll be glad you did!
You’ll use Old El Paso’s Original Taco Seasoning Mix along with some simple pantry/refrigerator ingredients.
You’ll start by sautéing some chopped onions in hot oil.
Add some minced garlic, stirring until veggies are softened.
Add the ground beef and seasonings, cooking until browned.
Slowly add your broth.
Add your taco seasoning.
Add your ground cumin.
Stir in fresh, frozen or canned corn.
Add your tomatoes.
Slowly add your tortellini.
Stir and let cook for about 8-10 minutes, until al dente. Remove from heat when tortellini is done.
What a beautiful pot of soup to serve your family and friends this season!
Garnish with fresh chopped cilantro, sour cream and shredded cheeses if you’d like. Enjoy!
