I have to say this was delicious. I added a few extras - instead of kidney beans I used can of corn and a can of sliced new potatoes. I also used more hamburger meat and ranch style beans with jalapenos instead of plain pinto beans. We garnished with crushed corn chips and shredded cheddar. This was a big hit around here -- got eaten all up by my hubbie and his friends over watching football. This was also so easy and I need easy with my four month old demanding constant attention. Thanks so much this is a keeper!!!! Read More

I thought this was great. I've made it before without the ranch dressing mix but the ranch really adds flavor to it. Serve it with corn chips and sour cream. Read More

Excellent tasty soup! We really enjoyed this and it smelled so good while simmering. I used only pinto beans as thats all I had. Hubby minced half a jalapeno and we also added some chopped carrots and celery for more veggies. I used diced tomatoes with jalapeno but it was not too spicy for us. I put in a can of beef broth and this made a huge pot! Glad we've got it for lunch now! Read More

Oh my I love this soup!!! I used ground turkey though and omited the oil....didn't see reason to use that and I buy my taco seasoning and ranch dressing in bulk at Sam's Club so I threw in about a 1/4 cup or so of each shrugs....I also threw in some hot sauce for that extra zing....boy is this good! Top with shredded cheese. Mmmmmm. Read More

This thick soup was a hit at my house. I did put in 1 can of beef broth 2 cans of tomato sauce left out the bell pepper and added 1 small can of diced jalapenos. I also added a small package of frozen corn. I found this was a very easy recipe although I did fry the beef onion and jalapenos together (I think the taste and texture of onions comes out better when it's cooked with beef rather than boiled.) before dumping everything into a big pot and simmering for 1/2 an hour. At the end I served it with diced avacados grated cheddar cheese and sour cream. mmmmmmmmm.....I think I need another bowl. Read More

really good - I've been making this for quite some time and it is quite a bit better in the crock pot - excellent! Also if you don't have a taco seasoning packet on hand the taco seasoning recipe on this site is great! Read More
