Cabbage Fiesta Soup - The Southern Lady CooksThis cabbage fiesta soup is great comfort food and a delicious soup.  This soup is wonderful with the bread in the photo. (See link below for bread recipe) or make some cornbread muffins because they go great, too. We like this soup anytime and I make it often for my family.  This soup keeps well refrigerated and is just as good for several days when reheated on the stove or in the microwave.

Cabbage fiesta soup ingredients needed:

Ground beef

Minced garlic



Diced tomatoes

Tomatoes with green chilis


Cheddar cheese soup

Kidney beans

Frozen cut corn (can use one can, drained)

Green pepper

Black pepper

Salt to taste

This soup is great for any gathering too. You can easily double the recipe and serve this to a lot of people. Simple to throw together and it has a great flavor!

RECIPE FEEDBACK: “Everyone enjoyed the Cabbage Fiesta Soup ! One of the member’s husband had a bowl and said that she needed to get the recipe from me. I referred her to the site! The Southern Lady Cooks!!!!” – Billie

“I made this last night with a twist or two and we loved it !! I used ground sausage instead of ground beef. I also threw in a couple new potatoes chopped, a can of butter beans, and chopped a few carrots. It was truly heaven in a bowl!!!” – Debi

“We just finished ours and it was soo good. I cooked it on the stove on low for 2 hours.” -Karen

You could easily make many variation so this soup! Make it with ground turkey or ground chicken, add any spices you love like cumin, chili powder and smoked paprika. All soups are super versatile and we love to try new things.

Cabbage Tip:  Green and Savoy cabbage is best to use in cooked recipes. Red cabbage is best raw and napa cabbage is best raw or stir fried. Bok choy is good sauteed.
