A good soup and everyone enjoyed. Being a soup loving family liked that this made a large pot with enough to freeze portions for future meals. Was a great way to use up the veggies in the fridge. Made using ground beef,mild salsa, the 2 packages of Taco seasoning along with the cup of tomato juice. And yes some green chillies! Next time around thinking to cutting back on the package of ranch dressing mix or not adding it.Agree that this is a very flexible recipe - want to try chicken and a variety of vegetables. Thank you for sharing.
