Taco Soup

My mom used to make this dish in the crockpot. All I remember is that it had mayonnaise, kidney beans and tortillas in it . . . and maybe chicken. My mom has it written down somewhere, but she's not sure where. Is anyone familiar with this dish? I'm dying to make it! We LOVED it as kids and I know my hubby would love it. Thanks!

  • I've been looking at Taco soup recipes all night and have yet to see one with mayo. When you finally get it please forward it to me as we are in need of a few new ideas in our menu plan thanks.....Julie

  • My recipe doesn't have the mayo or the tortillas but it's really good. Let me know if you want it anyway.

  • Taco Soup
    1 lg onion, chopped
    2 cloves garlic, chopped
    1 pkg. taco seasoning mix, recipe follows
    2 cups whole kernel corn, frozen thawed works fine
    1 can vegetable broth, or 1.5 cups home cooked
    1 can black beans, or 1.5 cups home cooked
    1 can white beans, or 1.5 cups home cooked
    1 can fat-free refried beans, or 1.5 cups home cooked
    1 can diced tomatoes (Mexican flavor, or add extra spice)
    1 can diced tomatoes (any flavor)
    Few corn tortillas cut into strips
    shredded cheese
    Saute onions in olive oil in a big pot and begin by putting the 2 cans of tomatoes in with the refried beans add all the other cans
    (dont drain the beans). Stir it up add the taco mix. Bring the soup up to just a boil (dont boil more than a moment). Cover and simmer for 1 hr. Just before you are ready to serve add the tortilla strips and cook 2 minutes and serve with a sprinkle of cheese

  • Taco Seasoning:
    4.5 tsp. paprika;
    1 tsp. cumin powder;
    0.5 tsp. oregano;
    1 tsp. chili powder;
    1 tsp. onion powder;
    0.25 tsp. lemon powder (optional, I've never used it);
    1 tsp. salt;
    1 tsp. sugar;
    0.5 tsp. garlic powder;
    1 tsp. flour;
    0.5 tsp. cocoa powder
    Mix all together and store in airtight container. Makes approx. 4 tablespoonful - the equivalent of 1 package of seasoning (enough to season 1 pound of meat or a substitute). This mix is very mild, I add cayenne
