'Taco Soup' is a favorite in my house, and a favorite of many of my guests! I found the recipe years ago in some clippings my late Granny had laying around. It included many things (garlic, cilantro, actual onions) that I wasn't a fan of, so I began to alter it to fit my needs. The recipe has evolved - I went from using chicken to using ground beef (or sometimes, I use both!), I added corn and used picante sauce instead of Rotel. Personally, I like the flavor better.

This recipe is very versatile - you can add almost anything to it. Beans, cilantro, chilies, whatever!
