I have served this soup often on cold nights during the holidays. In fact, it has become our Christmas Eve Dinner tradition! Family and friends have asked me to prepare it often.

How to Make Fredda's Taco Soup

Step-by-Step

  1. 1. Brown the ground beef
  2. 2. Just as the meat starts to brown, add the chopped onion. Stir and cook until the onion has become translucent.
  3. 3. Add the taco seasoning packet, and stir until the meat and onions are coated.
  4. 4. Add the water. Then add all of the remaining ingredients, including the ranch dressing mix.
  5. 5. Stir, stir, stir,
  6. 6. Once the mixture has come to a boil, cut the heat to simmer.
  7. 7. In about 1½ hours, the flavors are fully developed. If cooking on the top of the stove, stir every 5-10 minutes to keep from sticking. (In a slow cooker, it can stew for 6-8 hours.)
  8. 8. Serve with listed accompaniments.
    • Yellow corn tortilla chips
    • Grated cheddar & Monterrey Jack cheese
    • Sour cream
    • Guacamole
    • Sliced jalapeños
