    My husband loved this soup. Rather than dipping tortilla chips, I cut up a corn tortilla and put in the bottom of the bowl and poured the soup on top. Then I added shredded cheese on the top. Yum! I also used black beans.

  4. I don’t add any meat and put refried beans in it to be healthier.

    The best Taco Soup I’ve ever made and/or eaten. I didn’t add the whole corn however and my family loved it !!!! Thank you Amy.

    My family loved this soup, the recipe is now in my “favorite cookbook” for future use. I left the corn out however and simmered it for hours, what a great winter comfort food.

    This soup is really good. Do you have the nutrition facts for this recipe?

    1. Hi Angela. Sorry don’t have a nutritionist on staff at this point. Just a working mom who loves to cook and share recipes. Maybe one day. To lower the fat and calories even more ground turkey can be used instead of ground beef. Thanks!
