This is an inexpensive "dump recipe" -throw it in the pot, stir, then it's done! I had it in my head until I was pressed for time one night. My husband offered to make it, but I couldn't tell him what the amounts were. I then vowed to write it down so my husband or my two teens could make it as well.
Add onion, tomatoes, chicken broth, ranch beans, and corn. Mash tomatoes and 1 can of beans if desired for smoother, thicker texture. Drain and rinse remaining beans in colander, and add to soup pan. Add cumin, sriracha, cinnamon, ginger, sugar, and salt.
Cook over medium heat for 15-30 minutes, until it thickens to your liking. Serve with your choice of garnishes

This is a modification of a standard recipe that reduces the salt and eliminates packaged seasonings so you can vary the amount of seasonings to suit your taste for a fresher, healthier dish.
There are many options for seasoning (and likewise many versions of this dish.) The simplest method, although heavily seasoned and salty, is one package taco seasoning mix and one package dry ranch dressing mix. However, the recipe was too salty for my family's needs, so I always substitute spices on hand for the package mixes. Once you acquire the seasonings, this saves money as well as salt.
Mix all items in large dutch oven or slow-cooker and warm until flavors are well blended. Check seasoning and add small amounts of salt if desired. Serve with Fritos, cornbread, sharp cheese, etc. as desired.
This can either heat fairly quickly for a fast meal, or slow cook for hours safely.
If your group includes meat lovers, brown 1 lb. sirloin or ground beef and drain. Serve the meat either on the side or add to soup during cooking.
Additional salt reducer: use no-salt added versions of the tomatoes and corn.
If you have kids who don't like pieces of tomato in their food, simply puree (grind up in blender or food processor) your tomatoes and Rotel. They'll never know!

DH likes for me to throw stuff in a pot and make impromptu soup. Today I decided to brown some ground beef as I would for chili or spaghetti. I usually use canned tomatoes and a small can of tomato sauce and then just start throwing stuff in, such as, potatoes, onions, peas, carrots, etc.
This time I decided to toss in a packet of taco seasoning mix. Voila! Taco soup. Delicioso by the way.

I love Mexican foods but dislike soup using chicken. The weather got cold here so I decided to make tacos in soup form.
Wash and chop vegetables. Set aside. In a large pot, brown ground beef adding onion, bell pepper and celery after the meat is browned and broken into small pieces. Saute vegetables along with the meat until limp. Add the garlic and tomato paste and cook about 5 minutes. Add the can of Rotel tomatoes, V-8 juice, refried beans, chili powder, cumin, hot pepper and salt. Cover and cook on lowest fire until thickened. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed.
Serve hot. Serve with Doritos, diced raw onions and grated cheddar cheese.

Here are questions related to Taco Soup Recipes.
Years ago I used to make a taco soup that contained hamburger, taco seasoning, tomatoes, and Velveeta. I can't remember the rest of the ingredients, or the directions. I do know it contained "no" Ranch dressing. I can't stand Ranch dressing! All of the recipes I have found on-line contain Ranch dressing. If anyone has the recipe or something similar I would appreciate it. Thanks.

I made the recipe posted by Patybaby and it was soo good. Hard to believe it was so low in fat. Boy was it spicy. Hello Tums!
Thrifty Fun has been around so long that many of our pages have been reset several times. Archives are older versions of the page and the feedback that was provided then.
My family loves this recipe. It's also quick.
Brown ground beef, drain and rinse. Put the ground beef into a large pot. Add the Taco Seasoning, drained beans, canned tomatoes and the can of soup. Add 1 can of water. Heat through and let simmer for a few minutes. Dish into soup bowls and sprinkle with grated cheese. We like ours thick so we can use tortilla chips as our spoons. Yum!

Prepare chicken breasts, or use leftovers. Pour cans of black and pinto beans, corn, diced tomatoes, chicken broth, cooked cubed or shredded chicken breasts, and dash of sugar in a large saucepan. Heat to boiling, and reduce heat to low to keep soup warm for serving.
You can just serve or eat it how it is, or you can put tortilla chips in a bowl, squeeze lime juice on the chips and add shredded cheese and/or sour cream. Pour soup over the top and serve!
If you like taco seasoning, you can add that (I personally like it without!)
