I tried Hearty Taco Soup from www.food.com
I spent approximately $8 for a big pot, which I ate one serving from. I haven't tossed the rest of it... I saved several servings. But, I didn't particularly care for it. It was 'ok'. I finished my serving, but have no desire to eat more.
But, I at least tried something new. For the money, I would REALLY prefer chili over the taco soup.
On Wednesday night I plan on making my Chicken Tortilla Soup (which is really a misnomer as I don't put chips in my soup). And I am really, REALLY looking forward to making that this week.
