This is one of my mother-in-law's signature dishes and it is so satisfying. The first time I had some, I knew I needed the recipe. It's also one of the first recipe cards I ever made, and look how horrible it used to be:

The best thing about this taco soup is that you can have it in the crockpot in ten minutes. It's fast and easy and the envelope of Ranch makes it so zesty. Just be sure you buy a packet of Ranch DRESSING and not Ranch DIP. I have made that mistake more than once, and believe me, they are not the same thing.
The recipe also makes a lot. It feeds our family of six easily, and I freeze whatever is left (usually half) for a night when I don't feel like cooking.
My husband likes to crumble corn chips in his taco soup, but I prefer to dip my chips. Our kids each have their own style, too.
