The use of a ranch seasoning packet caught my eye. I adapted the recipe to cook in the crockpot and opted to go meatless. I also decided to up the veggie content and threw in celery, julienned carrots, diced zucchini, and green pepper. The soup was very thick after several hours on low so I added some water. The soup was tasty; slightly spicy, still thicker than soup, and topped with a splash of lime, a dollop of sour cream, and cilantro more special than the normal crockpot taco soup. I served with Mom's Broccoli Cornbread #135953 and I'll repeat the menu. Thank you for sharing the recipe!
