15 Bean Taco Soup Recipe - easy and comforting 15 bean soup recipe #15beansoup #beans #recipe

Growing up in Appalachia, I know my way around a pot of beans.

I’ve mentioned before that when I think about my grandpa (always just Papaw in my mind), the memories always include the smell of beans simmering on the stove.

Papaw didn’t think too far outside the box, but there are so many ways to get creative with beans!

For this yummy 15 Bean Taco Soup I used Hurst’s® HamBeens® 15 Bean Soup® to create this easy 15 bean taco soup recipe.

The 15 Bean Soup mix is one of many delicious Hurst’s varieties, in the dry beans section of your local grocery store. I get mine at Kroger!

This 15 Bean Taco Soup has great flavor. It’s not too spicy, and pairs perfectly with a variety of toppings.

We enjoy ours with avocado slices, fresh cilantro, and cheese.

Sour cream and tortilla chips would also be an amazing addition to your bowl.

15 Bean Soup with Ground Beef

While you may be accustomed to cooking your 15 Bean Soup with ham, you’re going to love ground beef, too.

If you want to lighten this soup up a little, you could also make it with ground turkey or leftover holiday turkey.

I love feeding my family such a variety of nutritious beans.

  1. Did you use the flavor packet that comes with the beans?

  2. Do we use the flavoring packet that comes with the beans or do we just set it aside?

  3. It is delicious! I made it for church dinner tomorrow. It made a lot!

  4. This looks delicious! I bet you could convert it for making in an Instant Pot.

  5. It’s delicious.  I added a tsp of crushed red pepper and one small can of V8 juice.  Have you tried freezing it? 

  6. I was wondering how you would go about converting this to cook in the Instant Pot. I have fibromyalgia as well as spells of vertigo from migraines. Standing at a stove for any length of time is difficult sometimes and my IP’s (I’m lucky and have all 3 sizes of the duo model!) have been such a blessing for those times. I’m not experienced at converting recipes though. Any help you’d be able to give me would be very much appreciated! Thank you in advance.

  7. You brought a little tear to my eye when you mentioned about growing up in the Appalachian’s and the smell of beans simmering on the stove. Spent my summers with my papaw and mamaw in the coal fields of southern WV.  Most every evening after playing cards or games with my cousins and my little brother, mamaw would say bed time.  But first we got to clean the beans, she would dump a bag on the table and to us it was another game and time spent with mamaw.

  8. This looks so yummy! I’m so making this for the kiddies!

  9. This so good. I’m not from the Appalachia but I am from a southern farming family. My mom always had to feed working men a good lunch and this recipe reminds me of one her recipes. She never wrote anything down. She just knew what she wanted in the pot. No one ever walked away from her table hungry. Thank you for the trip down memory lane. (Served with cornbread. Mmmmmmm yummy)!!!
