    WoW! This was some seriously great soup! I used ground turkey instead of beef, and caned diced tomatos instead of rotel. It was GREAT! Even the bf loved it, and he hates everything healthy. Had the leftover with chips. Added some lite sour cream on top! YUM! - 11/16/09

    I've been making this soup/chili since 2001. I switched up a 40-30-30 recipe. I make my own taco seasoning to reduce the sodium, no ranch dressing (nothing packaged) or olives, black beans, minced garlic, LS chicken stock (depends on meat) instead of water, celery & fire-roasted tomatoes + Rotel. - 5/9/13

  • Fantastic soup! We all loved it...including my two toddlers and my picky boyfriend. Loved it with the rotel tomatoes but we all love the spice. We ate it with light sour cream and a handful of tortilla chips. Yum!!! - 10/5/11

  • This soup is delicious! I didn't have any black olives (nor enough regular taco seasoning), so I just left those out and added cheesy taco seasoning, hidden valley ranch dressing mix, and two drops of sriracha. Great recipe! This is definitely going in my favorite recipes. - 7/30/11

  • This looks great. I will be making this week-end. However I will leave the olives out (not a fan) and I am going to use home made taco seasoning to reduce the sodium. Thanks for sharing! - 11/16/10

  • Incredible! My wife thinks it is really spicy, I added jalapenos to my bowl, and Cilantro and fresh Garlic while cooking the meat and onions. It is a recipe that I will make agin it allows me to play with my food I like that. - 11/15/10

  • This is very similar to a recipe I make often. I substitute turkey for beef and add a little more taco seasoning to make up for the lost meaty taste. I think the ranch mix is an absolute must, otherwise the soup tastes greasy. Very easy to make and certainly filling. - 11/10/10

    I will make this tomorrow. I need to buy the taco seasoning. Not sure if I will use the ranch dressing packet. It looks like it will fit with my gastric bypass diet plan. - 11/9/10
