Taco Soup

{A friend @ Elmendorf used to make hamburger soup. I was hungry for it earlier this week, but couldn't find her recipe. This is close, and CERTAINLY tastes better than it looks.}

1 - 2 lbs Ground Beef (turkey - used less)

1 pkg Taco Seasoning (used 1/4 C of my Taco Seasoning)

1 pkg Dry Ranch Dressing Mix (skipped)

2 Cans Chili Beans (used dried beans)

1 C Kernel Corn (used fresh)

2 Cans diced Tomatoes

1 Can (I used 15 oz) Tomato Sauce

I also added:

1/2 C onion

2 C water (no liquid in my beans or corn)

To garnish at the table:

Tortilla Chips

Sour Cream (Plain Yogurt)

Cheese (Shredded)


Brown meat and onion. Add seasonings. Add canned items. Simmer. To Serve: Place crumbled tortilla chips in a bowl, spoon soup over, top with sour cream, and such as desired.

Obviously, this was still fairly thick if Jared ate his soup with a fork. ::snort::

Enjoy! I did. ::snort:: I felt it needed a bit more spice - but I didnt use the ranch seasoning - maybe that's what it needed. LOL

I am going to try your taco soup for dinner tonight. I found a package of organic ranch dressing packet in the cabinet, wahoo, so I am going to add that.
It looks so yummy!!

I just saw that my comment was left by Brent, my son. Guess he was signed in when I left that comment. lol
The soup was YUMMY!! The ranch packet did the trick. I used Free Range Chicken Broth instead of water and added some garlic powder. I think that helped enhance the flavors.
Thanks. I will be making this again.
