Santa Fe Soup

This Santa Fe Soup is hearty, delicious, and full of different flavors and textures and the best part is that it feeds a village!

I love a good soup that is full of flavor like this one and you will too! If you are looking for other hearty soups, I recommend my Creamy Enchilada Crockpot Vegetarian ChiliEasy Tuscan Bean Soup, or Creamy Buffalo Ranch Crockpot Chicken Soup.

Santa Fe Soup Recipes

Finding a recipe that will feed a large group can be a tough task, but with this Santa Fe Soup it has never been easier! What I love about this recipe is how different it is from your regular Taco Soup because of the added ingredients and flavors in the dish.

One ingredient that really makes this a Santa Fe Soup compared to other similar soups is the Shoepeg Corn used in the dish! Before this recipe I had not known about Shoepeg Corn. It has this sweet crisp flavor and is the perfect addition to this dish!

Quick, Easy, and Enough for Everyone!

When making this recipe the toughest part (if you can even call it that) is opening all the cans of ingredients that go into the dish. With that being said, if you have one of those automatic can openers, this will be the easiest 12 serving recipe you will ever make!

If that wasn’t enough, when you check out the directions there are only 4 steps when it comes to making this dish! Don’t get me wrong, I have made of plenty of delicious 20+ step recipes but sometimes you want something that takes just a few steps and is full of delicious flavors.
