Excellent mild soup. I make a version that adds green Chile's and rotel tomatoes. I like a Spicer soup. This is also fantastic made with chicken and as many types of beans that you may want to use. Read More

As written this needs some help. It is very mild and that is OK but without the addition of some water or broth it is like taco seasoned Sloppy Joes not soup. I added water but wish I had used broth instead. I did saute an onion with the ground beef wish I had added garlic too. I missed having other veggies carrots cabbage peppers zucchini. Read More

I add about 1/2 yellow onion finely chopped to the ground beef and drain off the grease when meat is browned. Then add in your taco seasoning and ranch dressing and coat the meat (stirring until the meat is well coated.). I also use 2 cans of white shoe-peg corn (not drained) instead of 1 can whole kernel corn. I also do not drain my pintos or dark red kidney beans. I do however add one can of black beans drained and rinsed. When cooked top with shredded cheese chives sour cream (if you like it) and eat with your favorite chips crackers or cornbread. Mmm! Sooo good! Read More

EXCELLENT!!! It sounded strange to add the ranch dressing mix so I made one batch without the ranch dressing mix and one batch with....recipe is better as written WITH the ranch dressing mix. It needs all those seasonings in that ranch dressing mix its way too bland without. Garnished it with Mexican cheese a dollop of sour cream sliced avacado & a sprinkle of slivered green onions very eye appealing. Easy recipe that everyone enjoyed and asked for seconds! Read More

Love it. I just added two cans of beer, one jalapeño, one Anaheim pepper, minced garlic , and one lager red onion. And of corse salted and peppered. Will make all the time with two pounds of ground beef for a little extra protein. Read More

I make a similar soup but I use yellow hominey instead of corn. I love it. I really need to make some and can it. I have added a can of Ro-tel tomatoes to make it spicier. I do add a bit of water to mine just enough to make it soupy. Read More

I made this soup with the following modifications: 2 cans petite diced tomatoes instead of whole peeled tomatoes. After mixing all ingredients the soup looked like it would be too thick so I added a cup of tomato soup and a can of beer. Since I have never added beer to soups or anything else I have made before I was a bit nervous. The flavor and the consistency were great! This would be very good with tortilla chips and chopped green onions. I would definitely do it again! Read More

We love it. My grandson adds sour cream and crushed tortilla chips and shredded cheddar cheese on top of his and sometimes I join in with a spoonful of salsa. Read More
