Reviews for Simple Taco Soup
"Easy to make and very flavorable. Did not add the pinto beans. Will make again.."
"One of my favorite cold-weather soups. The only change I made was using ground turkey instead of the beef. Other than that, it's perfect."
"Very good and simple. I did add a chopped onion with the beef and added an extra cup of water. I like it with more juice."
"Really good recipe. My whole family liked it. I added a little more water to make it more soupy and left out the can of pinto beans. Will make it again."
"really good quick recipe . I used diced tomatoes instead of the stewed, and substituted salsa for the ranch seasoning. I served it with crispy tortilla strips and shredded cheese."
"Excellent recipe not only easy to make its quick and DELICIOUS!!"
"This is a great recipe. I tweaked it by changing to 1 lb sweet Italian sausage and 1 lb ground beef. I also added 2 add'l cans of the stewed tomatoes and 2 more cans of kidney beans along with 1/2 can tomato paste, 1/2 cup sugar, couple teasp. crushed red pepper, pinch of salt and pepper and finally some chopped garlic in oil and passed it off as chili at our work chili cook-off. I won the contest so thank you for sharing!!!"
"Really Yummy. I cut the recipe in half and ended up using the full amount of liquid and it still was not very soupy so that is the only thing I would change about it in the future."
"For those who need low sodium, I make my own mixes and just leave out the salt. They work very well in most recipes."
