This is a quick 'n easy soup to put together. My husband and I especially enjoyed this soup the next day, as the seasonings seem to meld together in the soup a bit more. We also enjoyed the soup along with grilled cheese sandwiches.





8 Can Taco Soup

1-1/2 lbs. ground beef
3/4 cup diced onion
2 (1-oz.) packets Old El Paso 25% Less Sodium Taco Seasoning Mix
1 (1-oz.) packet Hidden Valley Original Ranch Salad Dressing & Seasoning Mix
2 cans of beef broth (14.5 oz.) each
1 can (14.5 oz.) diced tomatoes with basil, garlic & oregano
1 (10 oz.) can (mild) diced tomatoes & green chilies
1 (16 oz.) can Bush's Light Red Kidney Beans, drained & rinsed
1 (16 oz.) can Bush's Pinto Beans, drained & rinsed
1 (15 oz.) can black beans, drained & rinsed
1 can (15.25 oz.) whole kernel corn, drained

In a large kettle or Dutch oven, add the ground beef and onion. Cook the ground beef till it browns, and the onion is tender. Drain off any excess grease.

Add the cooked beef back to kettle, then sprinkle the packets of taco seasoning mix and ranch dressing mix, over the meat. Stir well to incorporate the seasonings into the meat.

Add remaining ingredients into the kettle; stir, and simmer the soup (uncovered) for about an hour. Stir the soup occasionally while it's simmering.

Ladle soup into bowls and serve.

Yields: One large kettle of soup (or about 12 cups)

Do you add any water? It seems salty since you are using 3 packets of seasonings and 2 cans of beef broth.

momtothree...No I don't add any water, and surprisingly, it's not salty; especially since I used 2 packets of less sodium taco seasoning. I had wanted to use 2 cans of reduced sodium beef broth, but didn't have any, and the soup turned out great! I'm sure you could substitute reduce sodium broth for the regular sort of broth. Also... I wouldn't add any water, as it will really dilute the taste of the soup, and with the canned tomatoes added (including the juice), there's plenty of liquid in this soup.

Aah okay, plus tomatoes usually 'eat' salt so I guess the canned tomatoes helped it taste less salty.
