Hi guys!

You know if something has taco in the title, I’m going to love it.  And this super simple open and dump crock pot recipe is no exception.

My Vegetarian Taco Soup Crock Pot Recipe is the kind of savory bowl you WANT seconds of.

It’s kind of like my Crock Pot Award Winning Vegetarian Chili, but it is more soup like and the flavors are slightly different.  It features taco seasoning and is topped with taco favorites like cheese, lime, Greek yogurt (or sour cream) and green onions.

The real taco-y flavor comes from the chips though.  You can crumble some on top or use them to dip.

I didn’t want to discriminate for my bowl, so I did both.  I never want to pick sides 🙂

Since the weather has started to cool, I’ve been on a bit of a crock pot binge.  It is just such a great kitchen tool for everyone.  I think there are a lack of great crock pot vegetarian recipes out there, so I like to add more to the mix.

    Can you make this without a crock pot? I got rid of mine after becoming a vegetarian and never using it.

    My husband thinks most dinners taste better with meat and was a little disappointed when I told him this taco soup was vegetarian. He said it’s not “taco” soup without meat! And then… he tried it. I think it says enough that he went back for thirds and told me I needed to save the recipe! He is thrilled to have a vegetarian recipe he loves and we’re both happy to consume less meat.

    I have two questions: 1) Is the green pepper a bell pepper some other kind of pepper? and 2) Is the oregano dried? I assume so. Thanks!

    • JulieWunder November 6, 2016 at 9:52 pm - Reply

      Of course! Yes- it’s a bell pepper and the oregano is dried! Thanks for asking and hope you enjoy the soup!

    This was sooooo yummy! (And my hubby could not believe it was vegetarian) Thank you for giving recipes that are healthy and easy to follow! Lots of love. Keep them coming!

    This taco soup looks so delicious! I can’t wait to make it for my sister. She and I love bean soups. Yummmy!

    Cozy crock pots! Yeah! This is going into my must try list. Love the spices here, especially! Spices not only add flavor but loads of health benefits, too. Nice job!

    LOVE crockpot soups! Still a little too warm for soups here, but almost to the cooler weather, then this will be just right 🙂

      It was warm here again today too! It’s coming though!

    Tacos are so so delicious, and I love that you can try them with different flavors/fillings. I recently had a sweet potato taco that was so yummy!

    This sounds delicious. I am not a vegetarian but like to eat that way a few times a wk. This is perfect for those fall days.

      Thanks Lacey! My hubby who is not a veghead loved it 🙂

    That looks soooo yummy, making me want a crock pot more and more. I gave mine away right before me moved and I am slowly starting to regret it. Thanks for always sharing such great recipes.

      Ohh!!! The crock pot and I are best buds! Always something yummy! Tomorrow’s soup recipe is stove top!

    This looks amazing! I actually have a recipe I use that is almost identical to this, but mine does not have the broth. I am going to have to try your version. I also like the idea of greek yogurt, I never thought about that before, I’ve always used sour cream, but your idea sounds so much healthier!

    • JulieWunder October 12, 2015 at 7:19 pm - Reply

      Thanks! The broth makes it more soup like and less chili like! It’s really tasty!

    Mmm! You won me over with taco in the title, too, haha! I love Mexican. I think tonight’s dinner may be tacos for that reason! lol

  31. Jessica @ A Kitchen Addiction October 8, 2015 at 10:24 am - Reply

    We are fans of all things taco! This soup will need to get added to our menu soon!

  32. Great minds think alike this week for sure! Love all these flavors together.

      Thanks Deborah! We should have a taco soup party 🙂

    I think I’ve told you just how much I love my crock pot, so it’s always nice to have new recipes to put in it! Taco soup was always one of my family’s favorite recipes, but I never loved the super high sodium in the taco seasoning pack. Yay! for a healthier version!

    I’m not quite sure just how much you love tacos, but I’m willing to say that yes I do! haha!

    My comment did not post yesterday.
    I just said that I thought you had a nice
    workout routine and that I thought it was
    a nice touch having the demonstration shots
    or yourself with the routine.

    Yep, it’s getting cool so it’s crock pot time ( smile )
