The first seven spice items are combined to make the Taco seasoning. An easy alternative is a combination of our smoky Chipotle Ketchup and Chilli Ketchup. Their spices create deeply flavoursome soup.


  1. Combine the first 7 spice items to form the Taco seasonong.
  2. Heat the oil in a deep saucepan and add the onion and garlic. Cook for a few minutes until softened.
  3. Add the minced beef and increase the heat slightly and cook until the mince starts to brown.
  4. Add the taco seasoning and the jalapenos and cook until the beef is nicely browned.
  5. Add the Tomato Ketchup and stir for 1 minute or so.
  6. Add the drained beans, chopped tomatoes and the chicken stock.
  7. Stir well, season with a little salt and black pepper and bring to the simmer.
  8. Simmer for 15-20 minutes.
  9. Finally add the sweetcorn, fresh coriander and Stokes Chilli Jam and heat for a few minutes.
  10. Feel free to add as many toppings as you wish. We served our Beef Taco Soup with chopped avocado, sliced jalapenos, tortilla chips , grated cheese, fresh coriander and a generous dollop of sour cream.
  11. Feel free to add more Stokes Chilli Jam or even Habanero HOT Sauce for an extra kick.
