I have made this recipe for years but a little different. We brown the meat with onions..drain. Then to a pot add the meat, 2 can of red kid beans, 2 small cans of tomato sauce, 1 can (use kid bean can) of water, and 1 pk of Taco Seasoning. Then after bringing to a boil and simmering for 15 minutes it is done. Add soup to a bowl then top with Frito corn chips, cheese, and sour cream. My DH is military and when he was in Korea he made this and EVERYONE loved it. My kids love it also and want it every night!

This recipe was ok but bland. Do add the whole taco seasoning packet and extras, ie. sour cream, chips, avacado etc. My big gripe with this recipe is it's lack of detail. i.e. canned corn (drained or undrained) etc.

Dee-lish, super simple and quicker than chili. My tweaks: Needed entire packet of taco seasoning and added a can of black beans. Topped with crushed tortilla chips, cheddar cheese, sour cream and green onions.

This soup was excellent - I left out the corn, beans, and onion (picky family) but it still turned out great. I also chopped a fresh tomato and added it, and that added a little more substance to the soup without the other ingredients. This is a great easy soup to make at night when you don't want to spend a ton of time cooking! We eat it with cheese melted on top, sour cream, and avocado slices, with tortilla chips and it is SO yummy!

This was sooo yummy! I did change a little though. Instead of tomatoe juice I used beef broth and instead of tomatoe sauce I used canned crushed tomatoes. Really really good! Thanks for sharing!

I guess if you can't make up your mind about whether to have chili or tacos, you can just have both with this recipe! It wouldn't have been nearly as good if I hadn't added a tablespoon of cayenne pepper. Next time I think I will add a can of green chiles and some diced tomatoes as well. The cheese is a must.

I made this for a job potluck and it was a hit. It's requested quite often. This was just spicy enough for me. A person who doesn't like real spicy foods.

This was so easy and quick to prepare! It was a huge hit. I added more meat (1/2 lb), swapped tomatoes with chilis for tomato sauce and added a strong cup of beef broth. I served this with grated quesadilla cheese, sour cream and fried tortilla strips. And of course, a margarita!!!! Thank you Becca
