  • While the soup is coming to a boil, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and stir in the ground beef and taco seasoning. Cook and stir until the beef is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink. Drain and discard any excess grease. Add beef to the soup, and reduce heat to medium. Continue simmering until the carrots are tender, about 1 hour.

Recipe was ok. I needed to add about 3 1/2 cups water and beef bullion to make it a soup. I used the whole packet of taco seasoning and one onion to give it more flavor. Read More

This recipe has all the things I like .....easy, healthy, inexpensive, can be served more than one day, and is delicious! I made two minor changes: I increased the water to 3/4 cup and used regular cabbage instead of savoy. I will make this recipe often! Read More

This was really good my picky eater (age 7) ate the whole thing without complaining. I followed the recipe but I did add more water (maybe a Cup) some onion powder and 2 garlic cloves. After the beef was ready I placed everything in a slow cooker on low for 4 hours because I wasn't going to have time to make the soup later. Turned out fabulous. Read More

Just made this. My husband did not like the amount of carrots in the soup - I would have to agree - use less. Otherwise it was good. Especially loved the squash (I had some left over that was not used in another recipe) - it really added a good flavor. All in all an excellent soup - don't think there will be a lot of liquid to this soup. Read More

This soup was so good that my kids asked for seconds and possibly thirds of it. The only thing I used different was ground turkey rather than ground beef. My family thought it was great and they asked that I make it again I also made if for church potluck and came home with an empty pot! Read More

This was really quite tasty. The store did not have savoy cabbage so I had to use bok choy. I also did not put the full amount of carrots in. I did have to increase the water as my veggies started to stick to the bottom of the pot. I also did not have flavored salt or garlic salt but adding pepper at the end was fine. It is very hearty. My favorite part was the squash and while I did not measure it I used a whole buttercup squash so I'm sure there was more than 3 c. Definitly make again. Read More
