Tasty Taco Soup Recipe

When I serve this soup at parties, everyone asks for the recipe. It makes a lot, so if I'm not feeding a crowd, I freeze the leftovers. —Jennifer Villarreal, Texas City, Texas
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 envelope taco seasoning
  • 2 cans (15-1/4 ounces each) whole kernel corn, undrained

WHY review it? so silly to even make your statement, it is a good soup, sorry you can't figure out how to make it your own without being insulting.Reviews are to let people know what you thought of the taste.

"I would never make this recipe as it is given. Too much salt from processed foods. It might be something to pursue with fresh vegetables and chicken stock. I like the ingredients but not the canned items because of the salt. I don't see a need for flour tortillas with this dish especially since your already including corn tortillas in the bowl. Fresh homemade salsa on the top instead of cheese also sounds better to me and would add a little spice. I am also not a fan of packaged Taco Seasonings when you can use fresh seasonings instead."
