My husband’s Grandmother sent this one to me three times because she liked it so well! What is great about this soup is that you can add more of one item you really like or make substitutions.

  1. Really enjoyed this recipe I will use 2 cans of black beans next time though and probably add a little taco sauce to make it taste more like taco soup than chili.Also added 1/2 onion to the pot and let it simmer for about a 1/2 hr.
  2. So easy and good! I didn't have the cocktail juice so I just left the juices from the beans corn and tomatoes suffice. It is still good! And I don't use 2 packets of seasoning. Just one packet since my family likes it better that way. I do too!
  3. I have made this recipe several times. We like things on the spicy side so I have added cayenne pepper and jalepenos as well. I have made this in my slow cooker and prefer to let the flavors mix for longer than just to heat. The loftovers are just as good (if not better) the - Read more ...
  4. Outstanding and so easy! I use just one package of seasoning as we didn't like it quite so spicy. My suggestion would be to add one packet of taco seasoning and then taste it. ETA: This is a regular at our house and it is great with chicken too!
  5. This is very similar to a version of Taco Soup that I make quite often. I usually substitute one 15 ounce can of Mexican stewed tomatoes for the larger can of crushed tomatoes and use only one packet of taco seasoning. This is excellent garnished with tortilla chips sour cream cheese and green onion!
  6. I followed the recipe exactly. The tomato flavor overpowered the soup. It was disppointing and I wouldn't make again.
  7. Delish quick and satisfying! I made this for my boyrfiend roomate and her boyfriend and we still had tons of leftovers-- which were also really good! We crunched up some tortilla chips on top and if I had sour cream and cheddar on hand would have added those as well. Thanks!
  8. This taco soup is delicious. I didn't have the vegetable juice cocktail on hand so I used tomato sauce instead. Also I didn't add the full amount of taco seasoning as I like my soup on the milder side. My husband loved it and added some pequin peppers to his as we live in Texas - Read more ...
  9. Excellent tasting and healthy too! I usually add is a tablespoon (or less) brown sugar -- seems to take away a bit of the spiciness and my kids love it. Our favorite way to eat this is with corn chips and fat free sour cream on top - yum!
  10. I thought this receipe was very good, quick and easy. A couple of modifications that I made was using diced tomatos with chilies for a little extra spice. I also used tomato sauce instead of juice and it worked just fine. I added a little chili powder and paprika for good measure and it turned - Read more ...
