We first sampled this chili-like soup at a church dinner. It's a warming dish on a cold day. And since it uses packaged seasonings and several cans of vegetables, it's a simple taco soup to prepare. —Glenda Taylor, Sand Springs, Oklahoma

"I did not make this recipe as stated, as I have been making my taco soup different. After sauteeing the Hamburg, I add one large chopped onion with 2-3 cloves garlic, minced. One to 2 cans diced tomatoes with or without green chilies, stewed tomato are great also. Add to this one to 2 pkgs. Taco seasoning. Now add one to 2 cans of black beans, and same amount of canned corn, or frozen corn. Add salt and pepper to taste and enough water to make the soup just right. Simmer for approx. half hour. I used to make this for my sister's restaurant in Wyoming 20 years ago. Everybody loves it! Please be sure to drain corn and beans. No need to rinse. Some times I add some chili powder also."

"I was not a fan of this recipe. I should have noticed when it called for almost all canned ingredients that it would not be too tasty. Basically you just throw all the ingredients together and hope for the best. I had to add an extra pack of taco seasoning so that this soup could have a better taste then just canned beans and tomatoes. I also added sugar because the ranch dressing adds a sour taste to the soup that I had to cover up and some chili garlic sauce to give it a kick. I would suggest to omit the ranch dressing all together. Matter of fact, throw the whole recipe away and try again."

"This is basically the Weight Watchers Taco soup recipe. I use ground turkey (healthier) and more beans, and throw in a dried chipotle pepper to make it more like chili than soup. I also do not add the can of stewed tomatoes, just two cans of the tomatoes with green chilies."
