A very rich soup to serve on a very cold night! I love this recipe passed to me by my good friend Tasha! I make this one when I have a lot of people to feed. You can let people fix it how they want to, chips or no chips. I like to add sour cream sometimes on top.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 (16 ounce) cans ranch style chili beans
  • 1 (15 ounce) can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 (14 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
  • 1 (10 ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chile peppers (such as RO*TEL®)
  • ½ (1 pound) loaf processed cheese food (such as Velveeta®), cubed
  • 1 pint half-and-half cream
  • 1 pint heavy cream
  • 1 (1 ounce) package taco seasoning mix
  • 1 (1 ounce) package ranch dressing mix

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Heat a large pot over medium-high heat and stir in the ground beef. Cook and stir until the beef is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink. Drain and discard any excess grease.
  2. 2 Add the ranch beans, pinto beans, corn, tomatoes with green chiles, processed cheese food, half-and-half cream, heavy cream, taco seasoning, and ranch dressing mix. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.
  3. 3 Reduce heat to medium-low, and continue to simmer until cheese food is melted, about 20 minutes.

  1. The worst soup ever not worth trying
  2. Plenty of positive reviews and I agree that this is a great easy recipe for a cold winter day. Just want folks to know I made it substituting 2 cups beef broth for the half & half and heavy cream and reduced the amount of Velveeta. It still turned out great!
  3. Wow - this was fantastic. My whole family loved it. I added onions and garlic to the ground beef while cooking. Put it all in the crock pot and let it cook all day. Also added some pepper flakes to give it a small kick. YUM! will make this again and again
  4. The bomb
  5. Very Good But very cheesy.
  6. Love Love Love
  7. so yummy!!!
  8. As soon as I read this recipe I knew it was a winner. My husband went right out and picked up what ingredients we didn t have. The soup is easy and delicious. We added an onion to the hamburger to brown out of habit.
  9. This version sounds wonderful! Can't wait to try it! Thanks for posting.
  10. Love it! Quick and easy AND very tasty. Thanks for the recipe.
