"This recipe uses everything you'd use in making tacos. Does anyone ever measure carefully when making soup? I don't. Just keep adding liquids and ingredients until it looks like soup. I like thick, hearty soups." Recipe submitted by JackieKay.
3/4 pound of lean ground beef
1 (1.25-ounce) package taco seasoning mix
1 cup bottled taco sauce
1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes with juice
3 cups water
Shredded cheddar cheese
- Brown and crumble hamburger. Add taco seasoning and 1 cup of water. Cover and simmer 12 to 15 minutes.
- Add taco sauce, tomatoes, including juice, water, lettuce and some taco chips. Simmer until lettuce wilts.
- Serve with grated cheddar cheese and crumbled taco chips.
Makes 4 to 6 servings.
Note: "I put some cheese in my soup, but it gives a greasy look to the soup when you reheat it." - J.K.
