Mikasa Soup TureenStir in seasoning package and continue cooking 1 minute. Stir in juice, corn and salsa and continue cooking until heated through. Add water if you like a looser consistency.

Pour soup into a tureen like this one from Mikasa (ladle comes with it). When ready to serve, ladle into bowls and have a nice variety of toppings available (see list above for ideas) so that guests can create their own special bowl of Taco Soup. This recipe can easily be doubled and works great for parties. Put it in a Crock Pot to keep it warm.
