Cozy and comforting, this Taco Soup is so easy to make in one pot with kitchen staples! It's a hearty, filling, and protein-packed ...


  1. Eh this was ok. To be honest it was just way too salty for my taste maybe because of the taco mix and the ranch mix. I used a can of Mexicorn instead of hominy and added a can of black beans. Probably won't make this again...
  2. The best ever. Oh my this is delicious! It has a good deal of kick to it without being overly spicy. I only had a third of a Texas sweet onion left and used frozen corn instead of hominy. I added an half can of tomato soup that was in my refrigerator and a can - Read more ...
  3. Fantastic! I added a can of beer, an extra 1/2 packet of taco seasoning and a can of corn! Served with cilantro, sour cream, avocado, and cheese to put on top!

  8. This is an awesome recipe. I've been making it for a long time. A friend gave me the recipe. I use different kinds of beans sometimes such as pintos. My family loves this poured over a bowl of corn chips and topped with cheese and sour cream. You can't go wrong with this easy soup.
  9. I used shoepeg corn instead of hominy. Tastes even better the next day.
  10. I replaced the hominy with corn. My husband loves spicy food so I also added two chopped jalapenos. It was wonderful even better the next day.
