    MarkG's Note:

    This is yet another "souped up" version of the popular Taco Soup recipes already available. Although there's nothing wrong with the other versions out there, this is just what I feel to be the "Cadillac" edition. A little bit of everything...from a can. This recipe makes quite a bit due to using standard can sizes, but trust me, it gets better as left-overs...

      GREAT soup ~ don't let the ingredients scare you. This is fabulous. I couldn't find Ranch-Style Beans so I used a can of Chili Beans. You may want to rinse the beans off to reduce the sodium but overall, it is great.
