I was actually surprised the first time I made this and my husband went back for seconds.  He isn’t a big Taco salad guy and prefers to have a plain taco.  I think what really made this soup different was the beef broth and taco zip!  Be sure to make note of what your family likes about this soup so you can use it in additional recipes.
