Taco Soup Recipe Without Ranch Dressing

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.

Paula Deen has an excellent Taco Soup recipe you can try and just ditch the ranch dressing mix if you must. Personally, I think you should try using the dressing mix because the soup is not going to taste like ranch dressing at all because of the other ingredients in the recipe and the ranch dressing packet is used for the herbs and spices it contains as a flavor enhancement for the soup (like parsley, onion powder, garlic powder, thyme, dill weed, etc).

I have a great soup that is similar but made with chicken:

2 chicken skinless (deboned) breast (you can use leftover chicken 2 cups shredded)

2 tsp extra virgin olive oil

1/4 cup butter

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

3 cups chicken broth

1 cup milk

8 oz. Velveeta process cheese food - cubed (I use more)

10 oz. can Ro*Tel® tomatoes and chilies

1 tsp. cumin

1 tsp. chili powder

salt and pepper, to taste

flour tortillas, as needed, about 4 - 6

butter flavored cooking spray

shredded Colby Jack cheese OR Mexican blend cheese

*Preheat oven to 350 degrees (if you are making tortilla strips)

*In a pot, cook chicken breast with olive oil. Remove from pot when cooked then shred (if you are not using leftovers)

In (same) pot (do not wash), melt butter over medium heat. Stir in flour and cook, stirring often, for 3 minutes.

Slowly whisk in small amounts of chicken broth at a time, then whisk in milk.

Reduce heat to low and stir in Velveeta cubes; stir until melted.

Stir in Ro*Tel, chicken, and spices.

Once soup is heated through, it is ready to serve at this point. However, if you wish to make tortilla strips, it can sit over low heat while they are made. Stir the soup occasionally.

Spoon a ladleful of soup into a bowl, add a handful of shredded cheese, then spoon another ladleful of soup over cheese. Sprinkle tortilla strips over top.

For tortilla strips, cut tortillas into strips

Cut flour tortillas into thin strips and arrange in a single layer on a large baking sheet.

Coat one side of each flour tortilla with butter flavored cooking spray.

Sprinkle with desired amount of salt

Spray again with cooking spray.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes

Notes:

If you want to save a lot of time, use crumbled tortilla chips instead of tortilla strips.

As a substitute for Ro*Tel, you can use 1 1/2 cups of salsa.

Spiciness can be easily adjusted by using spicy Ro*Tel or salsa and/or adding cayenne pepper to the soup.

This recipe sounds close to what you are looking for. If you don't want the canned corn in it, you can substitute a can of beans.

Taco Soup

1 lb. ground beef

2 cans RoTel tomatoes

1 15 oz can diced tomatoes

1 can beans of your choice -undrained (pinto, kidney, etc.)

1 can whole kernel corn - undrained

1 pkg of Taco Seasoning

8 oz. cubed Velveeta cheese

Brown the ground beef, drain. Stir in remaining ingredients, except cheese. Simmer until hot. Stir in the cheese until melted.
