NOTES : Very good and makes good leftovers-especially when you use a medium spicy salsa. The peppers have time to give the soup an extra spicy flavor. Excellent use for left over turkey from the holidays.

I tried this soup today. I ate two cups and thought it was good and satisfying.

However, I didn't get 20 cups out of the recipe - I got 15. Which came to 1.33 points per cup instead of 1 point per cup (based on the recipe's numbers of 1 cup = 1 point).

Not sure what I did differently????

Anyway, it was a good one! Thanks for sending it.

Howdy all,
This sounds good, but a mite expensive.
I wonder if you are supposed to use the liquid in all the cans? That might be part of the difference in recipe size.

I made it last night. Thanks for the recipe. DH loved it! Yes, buying the 3 dinners seemed expensive for the little bit of rice and chicken that adds, but not having to cook the rice or chop the chicken was great, and the spices from the dinners gave it just the right kick!

I dumped everything in the pot frozen, but be careful and keep it on low because the tomotoes could make it scorch any higher (scorching is my speacialty!) I'm considering doing in the crock pot next time, but not sure if the rice would eventually get mushy. Any ideas?

I agree that it didn't make 20 cups. I even measured my soup ladle to make sure how much it held... just over 1/2 cup, so I'm counting 1 pt per 1/2 cup, but 2 cups is plenty since it's so thick, making a great 4 pt meal. I'm having it for lunch today!

This soups sounds like a natural for a crock pot, put the dinners in frozen.

Mareed,
Just wanted to let you know I made your soup... glorified. I had bought all the ingredients and tried to make it from memory. Evidently, I had some other things on hand intended for another recipe which ended up in your soup too. What I ended up with was a glorified version. Now I need to figure out the points I ended up with. I added a bag of meatless crumbles and a large can of pinto beans. Next time I'll drained everything to make it thicker, but otherwise it was great.
Thanks for the recipe!

This may have already been posted before, but I just got this last night at my WW meeting and it is really good, so I thought I would share:

Taco Soup

1 lb Ground Turkey or Lean Ground Beef
1 large onion, chopped
1 pkg Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing Mix
1 pkd Taco Seasoning
1 can Pinto Beans
1 can chile HOt Bean
1 can Whole Kernel Corn, drained
1 can Rotel Tomatoes - Mexican Flavor
1 can Stewed Tomatoes - plain

Brown Meat and Onions. Drain. Mix Hidden Valley and Taco Seasoning into meat. Add other ingredients. Simmer 1 hour.

1 serving = 1 cup = 2 pts.

These are very delicious with Baked Tostitoes and I also thought it would be very good on top of a baked potato.

Cheron,
My "glorified version" easily made 12 1.5 to 2 cup servings if not more. I know because first of all it wouldn't fit in my crockpot so I had to transfer it to a larger pot. When finished, I divided it into 3 large butter tubs, 2 to share with friends in need and and 1 for my family. I previously measured my soup ladel and found it is just under 1 cup, and I'm almost positive I put 8 ladels in each tub.
Although not exactly scientific, I hope this helps.

This is sooooooo addicting & I don't eat veggies & I don't cook. It is a must try recipe!

I would call it cheesy vegetable soup because there weren't any beans in it....but VERY good!

Thumbs up Taco Soup

2 lbs of extra lean ground beef
1 chopped onion
1 can small green chilies
1 can of whole corn
4 cans of diced tomatoes
2 cans of pinto beans
1 package of ranch dressing (powder)
1 package of taco seasoning

Brown hamburger meat, drain all excess fat. Add chopped onion. Once that is finished in a crockpot add beef,beans, onions, ranch, and taco seasoning. drain chili juice, corn, tomatoes**, and add them. Do not add corn until very end. Cook in crockpot on low for 1-2 hours.

**you may add the tomatoes with juice if you like it really soupy.

I prefer not to add tomatoe juice because I don't like it that ruiny. If you want you can add baked tostidos, lettuce, tomatoes etc for taco salad. But don't forget to count the chips.

Not sure how many serving but it makes a lot
3 WWP per cup
