Simple Taco Soup
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 25 min.

This is a good base for a taco soup recipe (a good starting point). I found this recipe alone to be far too bland. I added to the recipe cilantro, onion, another taco seasoning packet, sundried tomatoes, chipotle, chili powder, comino, crushed red pepper flakes, salt & pepper. We topped with green onions, cheese & avocado. I definitely would have added more rotel (diced tomatoes with green chilis) if I had the extra can. Also, I nixed the ranch- just because that is crazy to me....ranch does not pair well with tacos & is a rule breaker in our home.
I love it it is the BEST SOUP EVER that is why i gave it one star
I did it it was great
I only gave it four stars because I tweaked it a little. I added chick peas and a dash of salt to mine as well as used ground Turkey instead of beef to make it a little healthier and added an onion as well. We topped ours with cheese, sour cream, and tortilla chips
This is a great recipe. I make the soup for my family. We all love it.
Great basic recipe, can use as is, or adjust. Our family does like a little extra flavour in our food, so we usually add more spices than a recipe calls for. And I did add a few extras to make more soup to last longer with portions to freeze for later. Apart from the basic recipe: I added 1 can black beans, 1 diced green pepper, 1 diced white onion, 1/2 can leftover tomato soup (just to avoid wasting it.) Some cumin, paprika, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, parsley, adobo seasoning, chipotle chile powder, and about 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese, and some more water. I added black olives to mine but not the entire pot, because a lot of people hate olives. I love them though and they are a great addition! Then we topped as desired with sour cream, cheddar cheese, and crushed tortilla chips when serving. It worked out great. This recipe is versatile in how you can add to it or adjust it to make it work for you / stretch it for extra servings. I would have never thought about using the ranch dressing packet but that was a good idea.
Homerun! I threw all of this (plus a jalapeno) into my slow cooker 4-5 hours. Perfect soup with jalapeno cheese cornbread with very little clean up!
This soup is one of my favorites! I added the black olives as was suggested by a reviewer and that was a WIN. This will stay in the rotation of favorite meals. We also topped it with cheese and sliced avocado.
I have made this soup lots of times!! Everyone loves it---I make exactly as is except I add a large can of sliced black olives---try it, really makes a difference! Everyone always comments on the black olives and say they really love this addition!
Decided to make this tonight for our family and two friends. Went to grocery store to buy the ingredients, made this recipe and it was ready to serve, all within 25 minutes. Every person at the table LOVED this soup! I doubled the recipe except for the kidney and black beans .....I still only used one can of each of those. DELICIOUS! SO QUICK AND EASY!! This one’s a keeper!
