Note to self: Leave out the corn to reduce carbs further; sub black beans or pinto beans for the kidney beans for different texture. Submitted by:

My sister makes this recipe all the time--however, to eliminate some of the sodium, eliminate the taco seasoning and add cumin chili powder, garlic powder and onion powder. I find it to be excellent as a good source of fiber. Submitted by:

This is a high sodium soup...higher than most canned soups? Submitted by:

Due to my IBS, I need low-fat as well as gluten-free. Would it be possible to compute the nutritional information using ground chicken or turkey? Pureeing the kidney beans and garbanzo beans would help w/the insoluble fibers contained in them. Submitted by:

I agree that this is still very high in sodium. Rinsing both kinds of beans and using low-sodium canned tomatos will make a big difference in the sodium level. Also, be careful of the sodium content of some chili powders. Used turkey, added garlic and avocado slices on top. Yummy! Submitted by:

Carol: You can buy canned no salt added beans in some grocery stores, which is what I do. Submitted by:

Thank you, this looks so good! I will use Old El Paso's 40% less sodium Taco seasoning to lower the sodium. Submitted by:

I agree with Carol. This is one of those recipes where the "healthy" status is questionable for anyone. The sodium is way too high for most of us to even consider trying. Possibly using seasonings and replacing the tomato products with low sodum? Barb Submitted by:

I'm confused. How is 844.3 mg of sodium a good thing? That's a lot of salt!!!! Guess it's from the "tomato" ingredients. Would love to figure out how to cut that sodium by at least 75%. I'll have to make it with the low-sodium products I buy and see if that changes the numbers. Sounds like it's good Submitted by:

This was awesome, I only used 1 pkg of taco seasoning, low sodium and omitted the chopped chillies, it had enough kick for all of us! Thanks for sharing! It went really well with chips and mexican cheese! Submitted by:

Excellent. Used entire can of garbanzo beans, pureed in food processor with low sodium chicken broth to thin out. Used low sodium tomato products in each case. 844mg sodium/serving is just too high for either of us, and there's plenty of taste from the herbs and spices. Submitted by:

We liked it, but wish there was not so much sodium in it, since it was a makeover recipe. I think using natural seasonings like member Nwhiker said would be better. We even got the low sodium on all and that helped a bit. Thank you. Good going! Submitted by:

Initial description says three spices are subbed for taco seasoning, but the actual ingredients list calls for taco seasoning--& the nutritional breakdown is high for sodium. FULL nutritional breakdown lists chili powder & cumin instead of taco seasoning. Lime juice is not mentioned. Edit please! Submitted by:

Awesome! Delicious! Family loved this dish. Will definitely make again. Because we are a family that love spicy foods I used Hot Rotel Tomatoes and chili powder to take away the tomato taste. I used everything else as is in the recipe. I topped it with Low Fat cheddar cheese and cilantro. Yummy! Submitted by:
