Taco Soup

Recipe by Cajun Cooker

This is a chili-like meal that I make when I want to use left over barbeque chicken (or pork chops or beef steaks, for that matter). My husband and I like it soooo much better than the ground beef versions.

My husband barbecued some chicken legs and thighs and I wondered what I was going to do with them and then I found your recipe. YEA! I did leave out the green beans because I don't like them in soup and I only had one pkg. each of the taco and ranch dressing mix.My pinto beans were packed on chili sauce, so that gave a little extra spicy flavor. We loved it. Served with corn bread and a green salad.
