Awesome Beef or Chicken Taco Soup

Recipe by piranhabriana

This is a recipe I got from a friend of mine. It's great for making when you're feeding a lot of people. Also fantastic for warming you up when it's cold!

I "kind of" felt bad by opening up so many cans/packages and claiming I "cooked" dinner. BUT....I make a big pot of soup every Sunday and DH and I eat it for lunches all week. This soup was amazing. The night I cooked it I had to include it in my dinner menu because both my husband and my very picky 16 yo son wanted to eat it immediately. All I did was add 2 cans of reduced-sodium beef broth to stretch it a little further and make it more soup like and less chili than originally written for.We watch sodium in our house so I used reduced sodium taco seasoning, beef broth, taco mix and my ranch dressing mix in which I can control the sodium, reduced sodium sour cream and cheese and no salt added tortilla chips. I served this with a spoonful of sour cream and a bit of queso fresco on top. Delicious and easy enough to pretend I am all that in the kitchen! Next time I am going to add some green beans and freshly cut cilantro. Try it yourself as it is delicous!
