    Okay, i know there's a BILLION taco soups on here already. But from what ive seen so far, mine's a little different. This recipe is a favorite here at home. Its college-friendly because most of the ingedients are in cans. Its cheap, convenient, filling,several servings, crockpot-friendly, freezable, easy.. its just great. You can fix up the soup however you like, as far as the veggies and meat go. Ive used pork, steak, stew meat, chicken,even venison. The best meat to use, in my opinon is ground hamburger. I usually hate beans, but if i stick em in this i can stretch the soup out and get a little extra protein. Its not mentioned in the recipe, but if have a stray can of diced tomatoes in the back of the pantry, throw it in there too. Again, not a fan of plain tomaters, but this is a good way to get rid of them.

    3. 3
      Drain fat, if any.

      This is a great soup. I used one 13.5 oz can and 2-5 oz. cans of chicken, drained, for the meat. Since the recipe didn't specify, I drained the beans (canned bean juice is pretty much just gross) and corn, but nothing else. I also added the extra seasonings that were mentioned in the instructions (chili powder, garlic powder, paprika, and red pepper flakes), adding 1 teaspoon of each of them, except the paprika - I only added 1/2 tsp. of that one. The spicyness was perfect (for us). I served this with sour cream and a shredded Mexican cheese blend on the side, if anyone wanted it, and I also made Sweet Cornbread to go with it (as suggested - I am a fan of cornbread with soup/chili too). My husband said, "This s*%t is good," and that it would be good if it was thicker and chili-like (but he liked it as-is, too). I agree - this s*%t IS good, and I'm glad I chose to try it. It's a keeper. :) Made for Spring PAC 2010.

      I was actually kind of leary trying a recipe that had to ratings but if I had to pick one I'm glad I chose this! I followed the recipe but I used chicken and it was REALLY good, We topped it with sour cream and cheese and everyone enjoyed it. The 1st night we ate it with corn bread as suggested and the 2nd night we ate it with tortilla chips. I'm not sure which is my fav. Thanks for posting!
