"This easy soup is hearty, yet extremely tasty. This is really a form of chili, but uses some ingredients not found in regular chili. Sure to be a hit, you can adjust the spice as needed by using varying levels of jalapenos and RO*TEL® varieties. Top with shredded sharp Cheddar cheese and/or sour cream. Serve with tortilla chips. Leftovers can be frozen and enjoyed later." — AccountKiller

I made this exactly as shown. It was very good. My husband and guests raved about it. I served it with nacho chips and sour cream to be added as a garnish. I will make it again. The only thing I will add as a personal note - it is more of a chili than a soup in my opinion. And next time I would like to add celantro as a garnish as well. I think it would be great used in making nachos with melted cheese in the oven!! I will do that in the future too. Thanks for the great recipe. (I do not review a lot of recipes but I use this site constantly. I would just like to say that please chef's stop rating a recipe based on how you changed it up. Make it first and than if you think it is soooo wonderful submit it as a new recipe. This is getting out of hand on this site. And I have noticed a lot of other comments like this. It is in fact changing up the whole "feeling" of how this site started) Thanks!!
I was not impressed with this recipe. Hoping it will taste better after it sits in the fridge overnight. I found it bland even after adding an additional 1/2 packet of taco seasoning, 2 t. garlic, 1t. cumin, and 2 t. cilantro. The beer did NOT enhance the soup at all. Am looking for another Taco Soup recipe!
I made this last night at the last minute. I used a pound and a half of ground turkey, a can of fire roasted tomatoes, I left out the Mexi-Corn (I'm watching my carb count) but I added in two additional large chopped red and orange bell peppers, two cans of organic black beans, homemade taco seasoning mix, and because I don't have Rotel on hand, I used one jar of organic chunky salsa. I did not use the chili sauce or jalepenos as my salsa was a medium salsa and warm enough on it's own. I used Bud Light beer. I did saute the onion, bell peppers, and a ton of garlic in EVOO before adding it to the crockpot. This cooked overnight and was ready to go this morning. It turned out very well.
I make a version of this a lot..I've not tried the bottle of beer ingredient, but I would imagine that it only enhances this easy, popular, and REALLY REALLY good dish!!
Chad! This is good stuff!!! I made it today on one of our first cold days in southern Texas. I put everything in the crockpot except for green, red, and jalapeno peppers. I used a smoked beef sausage link cut up instead of the pork sausage and a Corona instead of the dark beer. I was so worried about the beer taste that I used only about 2/3 of a bottle and added about a cup of water. Well, it has been cooking for 5 hours and I have had two bowls already. It's very filling and the layers of flavor are amazing and come through in every bite. This is a true TexMex style dish. Thanks for sharing!
Delicious! I made this for work and everyone raved about it. Followed recipe exactly. Used Negra Modelo beer and it gave it great flavor. More of a southwestern chili than a taco soup. Served it with tortilla chips, cheese, and sour cream. Try putting the chips in the bowl first - you will love it!
What a beautiful dish! Absolutely vibrant colors and lovely smell. I'm guessing my 12 year old son is liking it, since he's on his second bowl. I pretty much followed the recire, with a little creative measurement since my can sized were different that the authors. I left the seeds and ribs in the Jalapenos, and it isn't too spicy at all, (in fatc, I prefer a little more). A real winner and a future favorite!
I had a girls night in and needed something easy that would feed a bunch. This soup was awesome!! The girls all loved it! I also had some white rice available for those who didn't want tortilla chips and it made a great combo!!
