Red Bean Taco Soup for the freezerSo, earlier this week I had my realization that I needed to do more freezer cooking and general nesting to prepare for baby, so I grabbed some easy meals to throw in the freezer that are easy to heat and eat. One of the recipes was one I’d had in my head to try for a while, Red Bean Taco Soup.

I didn’t take a ton of pictures because the┬ásteps are so ridiculously easy. Basically, brown the meat and combine everything else in a freezer bag. It’s easy and healthy, plus it’s cheap but tastes kind of like a party in your mouth.

Red Bean Taco Soup (A Freezer Meal)


  • 2.5 lbs ground beef
  • 2.5 lbs ground turkey
  • beef bullion (we preferBetter than Bullion) This may be omitted if you opt for all beef instead of ground turkey.
  • 5 onions
  • 5 c diced tomatoes
  • 5 c tomato sauce
  • 5 c corn canned or frozen
  • 10 c cooked red beans (you can use canned beans if you like)
  • 1/4 c taco seasoning
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • cheddar cheese for serving day
  • sour cream for serving day


  1. Brown your ground beef and turkey together with taco seasonings, salt and pepper. Drain meat and allow to cool completely before adding to the bag.
  2. Add the beans and browned meat to your labeled freezer bag.
  3. Divide the other ingredients evenly among your freezer bags, then seal them and stack them in the freezer.
  4. On serving day, add to the crock pot on high 4-6 hours or for low 6-8 hours. We also make ours on the stove, cooking it on medium heat for about 30 minutes with a lid on, until the onions are cooked.
