Taco Soup Showdown!

You know how it is.  We have our recipes and we are proud of them.  Fighting proud.   So my sister and I are hoping we might be able to enlist some help is settling this fight once and for all!  After all the only responses we get from family are “well, they are both good” and “well, I like them both.”

So you tell us.

Below are two recipes for Taco Soup.  One is my sister Suzanne’s and one is mine.  We have kept this unmarked as to who is who’s so we can get a fair opinion.  We are hoping someone out there might make both these recipes and let us know which one is the better Taco Soup.  This could be something you do with a friend so you are not overrun with Taco Soup for days.  Maybe one of you could make one recipe and the other one make the other recipe then get together to try them both.  Or, another option is to make them both recipes on your own and put leftovers in the freezer for a meal at another time when you need some “fast food” (food from the freezer is really pretty fast!).

So – here goes the Sister Soup Showdown – share your thoughts by emailing or commenting.  We can’t wait to see the results!
