Reviews forSimple Taco Soup
"I had a friend make this at a get together and it was delicious. She didn't drain any of the ingredients and neither do I. I add my normal spices, garlic, onion, Tony's creole, salt and pepper. Plus the ranch and taco season. Perfect fall and winter meal. It was cooler in my area so I had to make it."
"Thought it was not bad, but not amazing either. Followed the recipe to a T"
"Have not tried it yet, but will tonight. Recheck your nutritional information, it looks off compared to what I found."
"Love it! Added a can of diced tomato and 2 packets of taco seasoning mix!"
"I love this recipe. I double the batch and add an onion (house full of boys). That way we have leftovers for lunch! Add some tortilla chips and you are good to go!"
"I love this recipe!! I have tweaked the recipe a little I dont add the ranch dressing mix, and I do it without beans taste good on corn chips or tortilla chips, I had some on elbow macaroni and it was good!! My husband loves it too!!"
"I make this often and, as with many recipes, I make changes such as adding an onion and not draining the corn before adding it. Sometimes I pour it over rice or pasta and top it with shredded cheese. It's even better the next day and kids like to use tortilla chips as edible spoons."
