Taco Soup - how does this sound?

Here's how I planned it in my mind; how does it sound and what would you add or delete?

I started with dry black, kidney, and pinto beans. They've quick-soaked this morning, and I'll start them cooking in a few minutes. I'm going to add:

chicken stock
1/2 jar salsa
1/2 lb. ground beef, seasoned with taco seasoning
1 chopped onion

I'll top it with grated pepper jack cheese. How does this sound? Any thoughts?

Yummy! This soup is one of our favorite dinners! I add either frozen corn or a can of hominy, and I like to make cornbread "sticks" (in the little cast iron pan that looks like ears of corn) to go with it. I like the salsa idea!

We always add corn! Sounds great mama! I actually have this recipe somewhere for the crock pot... I wish we were having that for dinner tonight...

Re: Taco Soup - how does this sound?

Well, I just gave it a taste, and it needs more taco seasoning, but I don't have any more. It tastes more like chili this way, but that's okay. It's still yummy!!! Just needs more "taco" taste if I'm truly going to call it "taco soup!"

Sounds super yummy. We also add a ranch dip packet to ours, I know it is not that healthy but makes for that extra flavor burst. Adding a can of corn is good also. We sometimes top with raw onions and sour cream or avacados.
