Add the olive oil to a large soup pot and set the heat to medium high. Add in the peppers, onions, garlic and taco seasoning. Stir occasionally, letting the veggies soften, 8-10 minutes.
Next add in the salsa verde, chiles, broth and beans. Bring everything to a low simmer covered for about 20 minutes.
Turn off the heat and let the soup cool slightly. If using an immersion blender (blender stick, hand blender, etc), carefully blend everything into a smooth puree. If using a regular blender, wait for the soup to get cool and carefully blend the soup, adding it back to the pot when done.
Season for salt to taste and serve with your favorite toppings.
