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 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."

"I make a Taco soup very similar to this(wont go into all the details of my changes) Just one thing more that I add, and haven't seen is : 1 can of sliced Ripe( black) Olives---sounds weird but really tastes good!! My 20 yr old granddaughter had some and she "hey, nice touch grandma! " now her mom has to put them in her soup!1"

"Great recipe. I've been making this for years. Love the ranch dressing in it. I top each bowl with cheddar cheese , avocado slices and tortilla chips."

"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."

"Love this recipe! However, I usually only cook for my husband and I, and neither one of us are a huge fan of the chunks of tomatoes. To accommodate this, I use a can of tomato juice and tomato sauce. Also, we add chicken broth for extra flavor. Really gives it a warm and comforting taste!"

"This is an easy and quick recipe that is great for the fall cool weather. I only made substitutions for things I did not have on hand such as making my own ranch dressing mix, replacing stewed tomatoes with diced tomatoes with onion powder, and using chili hot beans instead of the drained pinto beans and can of green chilies. If I had all of the ingredients on hand, I wouldn't have changed anything."
