I thought this receipe was very good, quick and easy. A couple of modifications that I made was using diced tomatos with chilies for a little extra spice. I also used tomato sauce instead of juice and it worked just fine. I added a little chili powder and paprika for good measure and it turned out wonderful!

I followed the recipe exactly. The tomato flavor overpowered the soup. It was disppointing, and I wouldn't make again.

This taco soup is delicious. I didn't have the vegetable juice cocktail on hand so I used tomato sauce instead. Also I didn't add the full amount of taco seasoning as I like my soup on the milder side. My husband loved it and added some pequin peppers to his as we live in Texas and they grow in our backyard. Will definatly make again.

Outstanding and so easy! I use just one package of seasoning as we didn't like it quite so spicy. My suggestion would be to add one packet of taco seasoning and then taste it. ETA: This is a regular at our house and it is great with chicken too!

Really enjoyed this recipe, I will use 2 cans of black beans next time though and probably add a little taco sauce to make it taste more like taco soup than chili.Also added 1/2 onion to the pot and let it simmer for about a 1/2 hr.

This is very similar to a version of Taco Soup that I make quite often. I usually substitute one 15 ounce can of Mexican stewed tomatoes for the larger can of crushed tomatoes, and use only one packet of taco seasoning. This is excellent garnished with tortilla chips, sour cream, cheese, and green onion!

Excellent tasting and healthy, too! I usually add is a tablespoon (or less) brown sugar -- seems to take away a bit of the spiciness and my kids love it. Our favorite way to eat this is with corn chips and fat free sour cream on top - yum!

So easy and good! I didn't have the cocktail juice, so I just left the juices from the beans, corn and tomatoes suffice. It is still good! And, I don't use 2 packets of seasoning. Just one packet since my family likes it better that way. I do too!
