A Soup We All Know & Love

Here’s a soup we all know and love, but because it’s so dang good, it’s worth mentioning again.  Especially since the temps are dropping and nothing tastes better than a hot cuppa soup on a cold winter day!  I added a little extra “kick” to this recipe and it scored a big, fat THUMBS UP from Mr. Spouse.  He said he even likes it better than my favorite soup recipe!! 


1-2 lbs. ground beef {I used 1 lb.}

I large onion, chopped

1 can pinto beans with jalapenos {I used Ranch Style}

1 can red kidney beans

1 {8 0z.} can diced green chiles

1 can whole kernel corn, drained

1 can stewed tomatoes, Mexican style

1 can Rotel {I used HOT}

1 can beef broth

1 pkg. taco seasoning

1 pkg. Hidden Valley ranch dressing {dry}


Brown meat & onion together and drain.  Transfer to large pot and add beans, corn, chiles, tomatoes, Rotel, broth, seasoning, & dressing. 


Stir well and simmer for about an hour.  Serve with cheese, tortilla chips, and some warm cornbread! 

Happy soup makin’ season!!!


  1. Making this right now!! But, I had to improvise a bit. With all the snow we are having, for some reason the ranch dry mix was out, lol! I used a german salad dressing I had in the cabinet. Love this soup!!!
