My youngest daughter, Michelle, is a major jock and she loves the competition of playing and watching sports.
She also sees life as a challenge and jumps to the occasion of conquering her fears and the ever-present bumps in the road of life.   But she really likes easy food that can be thrown together and it soothes the body and soul.  Yep, easy comfort food and fierce competition are her forte.   We are having a crowd over for The Big Game playoffs and I immediately thought of her 7 can Taco Soup.  It’s her favorite go-to dinner, it’s all comfort on the inside and it can really feed a crowd.

I've eaten taco soup before, but it was bland. Your recipe, with the Rotel, Taco Seasoning and Ranch Salad Dressing mix sounds like it would have the "punch" I've been looking for. Thanks for the recipe! How many hopefuls does this usually make?

This is fantastic! Love that you don't have to do a lot of chopping for the tomatoes. Rotel sure comes in handy.
