Chunky Taco Soup

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Nasseh

This easy taco soup is full of flavor. It tastes even better the second day. Note: If you want it more soupier you can add another small can of tomato sauce.

Excellent and easy! It was a tad salty for my taste, even omitting the salt and using reduced sodium beans, but not too bad. I did add about a cup of medium Picante sauce, as it seemed too thick and not tomato-y enough. I also added the cheese & sour cream as garnishes, along with some cilantro, rather than cooking them in--I thought it would reheat better that way, plus they helped to cool it a bit. I also used granulated garlic instead of onion powder as I didn't have any. I used Uncle Dan's ranch mix and Lawry's taco seasoning, and I used the beef option. We enjoyed this, and it was very easy and fast to make. I'll make this again--thanks so much for posting, Nasseh! Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders tag game.
