    UnknownChef86's Note:

    The first time I had this, I knew it was a winner. We like to crush the tortillas on top of the soup, like crackers, eat them out of the soup...and repeat! Other than the hamburger/chicken and the cheese, all of these ingredients can be stored in your pantry, making it a good "emergency" dish in case of sudden, unexpected guests or foul weather. A bag containing all the canned goods and the tortilla chips (with the meat and cheese separate), along with this recipe, makes a nice gift for someone that is housebound or unable to spend a lot of time cooking.

      Believe it or not, I'd never even tasted taco soup, much less made it. I was a little bit unsure about it, but this was a HUGE hit with my family! The hardest part was finding the ingredients at our (awful) local grocery stores. Unable to locate the types of tomatoes called for, I used plain and added a teaspoon of Cajun seasoning, a little cumin and oregano, and about a tablespoon of green chilies to make up for the missing flavors. Buttermilk ranch dressing mix was not to be found, so I used H.V. Fiesta. The only substitution I made of my own free will was corn (which we love) for hominy (which we don't). :) Everyone went back for seconds -- and some for thirds!!
