"There are other versions of taco soup out there, this is mine and we love it. my kids eat this up and it's loaded with veggies. serve this with cheese quesadillas on whole wheat tortillas for a great kid loving healthy meal. Ingredient amounts are very flexable here. put in what you like, leave out what you don't. you can also add zuchini, greenbeans, peas, whatever will fit into your crock pot. i've even added cactus to this - YUM! this is a very economical filling meal and it freezes great. you can also stretch this further by adding cooked rice at the end if you'd like. i freeze this in individual portions in my soup bowls lined w/ plastic wrap. when frozen i pop it out of the bowl and into a large ziploc bag and store in the freezer. when somebody wants a bowl of soup we pop the frozen soup back into the bowl and nuke till hot."

"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."
