How to Make Taco Soup


  • 1Saute ground beef with onion until browned through.
  • 2Empty tomatoes in to a large pot and bring to a boil. Add green chiles, cooked ground beef and return to a boil.
  • 3Drain and add the hominy; add the pinto beans undrained.
  • 4Mix taco seasoning and ranch dressing envelopes with a small amount of water to form a paste and then stir paste into the soup (this will prevent lumps from forming in the soup).
