Tasty Taco Soup

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

    We make this overall, every other week for a couple years now. Easy half hour meal to make when kids have activities. Only tweaks I made was sautéed 1 onion with the ground beef, used 1 can undrained black beans in place of pinto beans, frozen corn, and added 1 can mild chopped green chilis and a pinch of red pepper. If I didn't have the basic recipe, I would have had nothing. Thanks so much for sharing.

    Really good! I used creamed corn as that was all I had and it was terrific.

    Easy to make and yummy to eat! It is more like a chili, but regardless of texture is still very tasty. What a wonderful recipe to have on hand for cool spring evenings!

    Thicker than what i consider soup to be. Had good flavor considering no spices were added.

    Recently made this for a football night meal. It was very tasty . I served it with sour cream, shredded cheddar and fritos. This will be a regular addition to my football night meals!

    Love taco soup! I use 1 can Brooks chili beans, 1 can Bush's white bean chili beans, 1 pkg Taco Bell taco seasoning, 1 can Rotel tomatoes, 1 can of corn and a cup of beef broth (or more if we want more broth). We serve it with shredded mexican cheese and a dollop of sour cream, some of us also add crushed Fritos - whole family loves it!!

    Just tried this soup for dinner tonight. 1 2 3 EZ as it could be. Very tasty . A good diet soup if you are counting calories or points. Just rinse everything to lower the sodium and use low fat beef or chicken would be good too. Fast work night dish.
