A friend of mine made this soup.  I LOVED IT.  This soup has meat, corn, tomatoes, cheese, and a lot of other stuff that makes it taste great.  It also has 2 kinds of beans.  I hate beans, but when I walked into her kitchen and smelled the soup I was determined to taste what smelled so good.  My husband and I made the soup recently and it was soooooo gooood.  The recipe is below, but I advise to add your own spices to taste.  This recipe makes 12-18 servings.  I suggest freezing some of it, this way you'll have a ready made meal when you don't have time to cook.  Oh and don't forget the chips.  Enjoy.


  • 2 lbs ground beef (or turkey)
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 1 4 ounce can diced green chilies
  • 1 1 1/4 ounce taco seasoning packet (any brand will do)
  • 1 1 ounce Hidden Valley Ranch dip packet
  • 2 11 ounce cans corn, undrained
  • 4 14 ounce cans stewed tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 15 ounce can pinto beans, undrained
  • 1 15 ounce can kidney beans, undrained
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped (optional)
  • grated monterey jack cheese, and/or cheddar cheese


  1. Brown the meat with the onions in an 8-qrt stockpot.
  2. When cooked all the way through, add remaining ingredients and cook over medium heat for 30 minutes.
  3. Eat now if you are not freezing it. Top with grated cheese, sour cream, tortilla chips, etc.
  4. If freezing, let cool completely and pour into freezer bags. First mark the bags with "Taco Soup, Reheat to Serve" and the date.
