Tasha's Taco Soup

Recipe by  

"A very rich soup to serve on a very cold night! I love this recipe passed to me by my good friend Tasha! I make this one when I have a lot of people to feed. You can let people fix it how they want to, chips or no chips. I like to add sour cream sometimes on top."

  1. Heat a large pot over medium-high heat and stir in the ground beef. Cook and stir until the beef is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink. Drain and discard any excess grease.
  2. Add the ranch beans, pinto beans, corn, tomatoes with green chiles, processed cheese food, half-and-half cream, heavy cream, taco seasoning, and ranch dressing mix. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.
  3. Reduce heat to medium-low, and continue to simmer until cheese food is melted, about 20 minutes.

As soon as I read this recipe, I knew it was a winner. My husband went right out and picked up what ingredients we didn`t have. The soup is easy and delicious. We added an onion to the hamburger to brown out of habit.

I have tried a few different variations of taco soup, but never had much luck. I finally found a winner. I came across this because I had some velveeta to use up and searched by ingredient. This soup is so flavorful. So many of the others just tasted like tomato, but this one with the ranch and velveeta was just perfect. My wife loved it as well stating it had a good, rich flavor. Going to be making this one again for sure. Thanks!

My whole family loved this recipe! I did change a couple of things-I used fat-free milk in place of the heavy cream and only used 8oz of velveeta instead of 16oz. My version was probably not as thick as the original but it still tasted great and saved a ton of calories.
