    This recipe tasted very good. I was very full after eating a bowl of this (which was like 1 1/2 cups). It made me wonder about the calories quoted, especially with the large amount of beans, and only 1 can tomatoes. So, I added up all the calories, and I got 272 per cup, not 127. - 11/4/10

    This soup was excellent. My 9 year-old son loves it and asks for seconds. I mixed each serving with 1/4 cup of brown rice and added 2 Tbsp. of salsa to mine. Fantastic! It's a great recipe for using up beans in your pantry. - 9/29/09

    This is one of our favorites. Very easy, tasty, and it feeds a BUNCH of people! I add a diced medium onion while I'm browning the meat, and substitute yellow hominy for the corn. We usually serve with jalapeno cornbread. Just the thing for cool evenings when you don't have a lot of time to cook! - 4/13/09

    We make this too but we use ground turkey and we also use 40 percent low sodium taco seasoning instead of the ranch due to the sodium content. It's very good. - 4/13/09

    This was great. I made it with less liquid so it would be more like chili. I also added additional spices so it would be spicier, we like things with a kick. Had friends over and ended up using as a dip with tortilla chips. Huge success@ Will make again! - 8/14/09

    Awesummmm! I was totally amazed by this recipe. I did use a lean ground turkey and rinsed the higher sodium beans.
    I also recalculated the calories and come out with 187 per 1 cup serving. So I added the ingredients to make taco salad and SCORE! Awesome supper-ness! - 2/11/11

    Calorie count is nowhere near right. I looked into the background of the recipe. 2 cans of beans is way more than 0.96 cups. Tasty soup, but the calories listed are far from right. - 1/16/13

    TASTY - what makes it incredible is how fast and easy it is! I added 2 TBSP of chopped garlic (we love garlic) & I added one can of beef broth to make it soupy. I used Southwestern ranch dressing mix as that is what I had on hand. I topped my bowl off with aTbsp. of fat free plain yogurt. YUM! - 4/13/09

    This recipe looks great, BUT the sodium from pre-packaged spices is a trip to E.R for me with high BP. I season my homemade Mexican foods with spices, with virtually NO sodium in them.Could chef Meg perhaps play around with that type of version? I will definitely be making this my way until she does - 9/1/12

  • Delicious and surprisingly filling. I made half a recipe and it's going to last me a while. I used ground turkey instead of ground beef and added onion. I also drained the beans and the corn to make it more of a chili than a soup. So good! - 8/2/12

  • This is delicious and easy. I used ground turkey i/o beef, and chicken stock to thin. It made a lot of soup so everyone was happy. Also, based on brands at my store there is no nutrional difference in the "fat free" ranch dressing powder - - so save your money. - 2/28/10

  • A delicious taco soup although it was more like a great chili. Since there's only 2 of us, we enjoyed for a few days. I used no salt kidney beans, no salt black beans and no salt corn. If I could have found no salt pinto beans I would have used that too. This is definitely on my keep list. - 1/6/10
