Taco Soup Ingredients
Ok, as I mentioned earlier, we're doing a low carb keto take on taco soup today.
And all that means is that instead of black beans, we'll be using black soybeans since they're WAY lower in net carbs.
That said, if you'd like to make a "classic" taco soup just use an equal amount of black beans in place of the soybeans.
Anyways, here is the full list of ingredients you'll need...
- 2 pounds (905g) ground beef
- One 14.5oz can black soybeans
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped (optional)
- Two 14.5oz cans diced tomatoes with green chiles
- 3 cups chicken broth, or bone broth
- ⅓ tablespoon chili powder
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon oregano
- Salt and pepper as needed for the perfect taste
Optional Ingredients For Garnishing the Soup:
- Shredded Mexican cheese
- Chopped avocado
- Sour cream
How to Make Great-Tasting Low Carb Keto Taco Soup
The one primary kitchen appliance that you'll need to make this delicious recipe is an Instant Pot.
They come in both 6-quart and 8-quart options, and either one will work for this recipe.
Getting the Ground Beef Ready
To start this Instant Pot taco soup recipe off, you'll want to brown the ground beef and get it ready to go.
Just like any other taco-related recipes you may have made in the past, browning the ground beef is seemingly always the first step!
To do this, we'll be using the Instant Pot, of course. With the Instant Pot set to Saute mode, add in the ground beef and chopped onions - the onions need to be browned as well, might as well do them together!
Saute them for around 5 minutes, until the beef is browned and the onions have caramelized and softened.
If you are using the jalapeno to add a bit of spice, you'll want to add the chopped pieces in now and saute for another 2 minutes using the Saute mode.
If you have opted to go without the jalapeno, you're ready for the next step.
Adding Everything in and Finishing Up
Once the beef, onions, and jalapeno have been sauteed, you can add the ingredients.
Since it's a soup and everything will be stirred up and mixed all together, the order doesn't matter.
You just want to be sure to add the diced tomatoes, chicken broth, chili powder, cumin, smoked paprika, cinnamon, oregano, soybeans, and salt and pepper.
With everything in the Instant Pot, mix it all up and close and latch the lid.
Set the Instant Pot to Pressure Cook and let it cook for 10 minutes. After the 10 minutes is up, let it sit for 5 minutes while still under pressure.
Once 5 additional minutes have passed, you can release the pressure and stir everything up once more to ensure an even mixture.
Give it a taste, adjust the seasoning if you need to, and you're ready to serve.
While serving, remember to add any of the garnishes that you wish.
If you want cheese on top, I recommended shredded Mexican cheese. And to top it off with a beautiful green garnish, we suggest adding some cilantro on top.
Whatever your desire, garnish the soup, and you're done!
That's all it takes to make this fantastic taco soup - 30 minutes, a few simple ingredients, and an Instant Pot!
Make This Taco Soup On Your Stove Top
Ok, so if you stumbled upon this tasty keto soup recipe, but don't have an Instant Pot, don't worry!
You can always make this taco soup in a pot on your stove.
All you have to do is brown the beef in the pot, add in the jalapeños - cook those for a bit -, add the rest of your ingredients, and bring everything to a bowl.
Then once the soup reduces down a little bit, you can cut-off the heat, garnish with cheese, and dig in!
Pretty easy, eh?!
