Easy Incredible Taco Soup

40 mins (prep 10, cooking 30)
16 ingredients

Okay - this soup is very yummy!I didn't believe it until I tried it - a web friend from Memphis sent me this recipe - I thought it was made with too many cans, packages, etc....and come on - a package of dry ranch dressing mix?! But it only took 20 mins to put together and I was short on time - it turned out great - dad loved it - and I did too. Great for working moms, cold snowy weekend afternoons, sons who have to feed aggravating widowed fathers (My Story - LOL) , etc....I used 95% lean beef and saved the draining step, instead of the tortilla strips, I just served it with restaurant style Taco Chips and we crushed them a bit and stirred them in while eating. Yummy. You can sub chicken stock for the beer - but the beer is best - all the fun effects boil off! Even better the next day!
