I guess I'm the only person here who made this soup and didn't get good results. The soup tasted so salty, that I ended up throwing the whole thing out. After adding the taco seasoning mix, it didn't taste too bad, but once I added the ranch dressing mix, I think that's the reason why the soup tasted extremely salty. I would highly suggest using low sodium ingredients when making this soup. Also, I would only add 1 can of the corn, as 2 seems a bit extreme, plus sub beef broth for the water, and add some other kind of tomatoes to the soup, as the one small can isn't enough. I doubt I'll be making this soup again.

This was a good taco soup. I followed the recipe as written. Next time I would use beef broth instead of just water to give it a bit more flavor. I used a packet of hidden valley ranch dressing. I froze some of this for future lunches. We enjoyed this topped with cheddar cheese. Made for Spring PAC 2010.

Becky's a good friend to have around, farmwife! :) This soup was excellent! The Rotel & ranch mix are what make it stand out. I used the lime & cilantro flavored Rotel, Emeril's Southwest Seasoning and only one can of chili beans, but for 2 and a toddler, it was plenty. I served this with some broken taco shells, cheese sprinkled on top and a bit of fresh cilantro. Even my 3 yr old ate it all up! Thanks for sharing, Farmwife! Made & enjoyed for Spring 2010 Pick A Chef. You've been adopted! :)
