This was great, quite spicy with 2 halepenos,which is tempered if you add the cheezy sauce. I liked the curry in it. I keep being surprised realizing you don't need meat to make a great chili type soup, w/ great spices! Love the sweet of the corn w/ the quite hot. I put my onion in at the end, however, which could have added to the heat, also I've heard to eat raw onions when trying to ward off illness.

This is the BEST taco soup I have ever made. My family Loved it and no one even commented that there was no meat in it. I'm adjusting my family's diet one dinner at a time. This is so fun.

What is Mexican seasoning? I've never seen this in a store. Is it the same thing as Taco seasoning?

Tammie said...

Heather: It is a lot like taco seasoning but most taco seasonings have not so good ingredients. I probably got my Mexican seasoning at the health food store sometimes I have seen it called southwest seasoning too. I usually just make my own, it's mostly chili powder, cumin, garlic and salt. I should post my recipe. My taco seasoning recipe will work you can find it at http://www.simplehealthytasty.com/2011/04/how-to-make-your-own-taco-seasoning.html
