Taco Soup

No recipe image available."This recipe uses everything you'd use in making tacos. Does anyone ever measure carefully when making soup? I don't. Just keep adding liquids and ingredients until it looks like soup. I like thick, hearty soups." Recipe submitted by JackieKay.

Recipe Ingredients:

3/4 pound of lean ground beef
1 (1.25-ounce) package taco seasoning mix
1 cup bottled taco sauce
1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes with juice
3 cups water
Lettuce, chopped
Taco chips
Shredded cheddar cheese

Cooking Directions:

  1. Brown and crumble hamburger. Add taco seasoning and 1 cup of water. Cover and simmer 12 to 15 minutes.
  2. Add taco sauce, tomatoes, including juice, water, lettuce and some taco chips. Simmer until lettuce wilts.
  3. Serve with grated cheddar cheese and crumbled taco chips.

Makes 4 to 6 servings.

Note: "I put some cheese in my soup, but it gives a greasy look to the soup when you reheat it." - J.K.
