"Like my Tortilla Soup II recipe but modified for people that like beef instead. Personally, I like the chicken version much better."

"I've made this a few times now and its a hit! I skip the celery, reg diced tomatoes and milk. I use ground beef and a little less broth and taco seasoning, perfect size for us. Also if you don't have the corn tortillas it still comes out great."
"I made this with ground beef (cooked it, drained fat and then added back). After I completed the recipe as written, I decided it needed something to be more "enchilada-like" so i added about 8 ounces of sharp cheddar and about 8 ounces or so of velveeta block cheese. I also added a packet of ranch dressing mix. I liked it better this way and my family loved it. This recipe made quite a lot of soup!"
"The soup is delicious!! I made some slight changes due to what is available around here (no Rotel, no diced tomatoes, and no taco seasoning). I used one carrot and grated it - liked the result. No celery. 1 onion. Skipped the salt an pepper. Decided to add about 1/2 tsp. oregano and 1/2 tsp. cumin to replace the taco seasoning. Diced up 4 tomatoes and 1 aji amarillo to replace the canned stuff. Used masa instead of the tortillas (I should have mixed the masa in a little bit of water before adding it b/c it ended up lumpy. Also, used someone else's tip and replaced the milk with plain yogurt. We loved it!! Update: had sour cream and used it to replace milk this time. Also had cooked rice on hand and used it to replace the masa - increased broth (roughly one more can) and cooked a bit longer because of rice. Excellent!"
"Very good! Tasted just like enchiladas! Whole family really enjoyed this soup. Thanks for sharing."
"This recipe is so good! It will be one of the regular meal for my family on a cool day. My children (8 and 5) requested for it to be served on Halloween! Thanks Eddie!! :)"
"This is yummy! I used ground beef cooked with a taco seasoning packet, I made it a bit thicker by tossing in some stale corn chips in addition to the tortillas, and finally, I used light sour cream instead of milk - fat free or plain yogurt would work, too. This adds an additional acid to the soup that works well. I really like this soup. Garnish with chips, sour cream, cheese and green onion and its so so good."
