    I make this same recipe with black beans, kidney beans, and pinto beans. I also add a ranch seasoning packet to it. My husband doesn't even want regular chili anymore, he would rather have this! I don't put chiles in it either. I just use 2 cans tomato sauce, 1 can diced tomatoes, 1 can corn. - 8/8/09

    Very yummy, but if we are looking at reducing cost, it is much cheaper to use frozen corn instead of canned, and use dried bean instead of canned. - 11/12/08

    WOW! Look at the sodium content versus the calories. There are so many things I would do to alter this recipe and make it healthier and cheaper. - 11/11/08

    Is this really a healthy soup? It has almost the total daily recommended amount of sodium and is very high in cholesterol and fat. The amount of fiber and protein is good, but I don't see how this can be healthy. - 10/30/12

  • This soup was delicious! When I told my boyfriend I was making soup for supper, he said, "I can't get full from soup!" Now he wants the leftovers for supper tonight! I did add a cup of water because I wanted it a little more "soupy." I also put one can of black beans and one can of dark kidney beans - 12/1/09

  • I made and tried this today, I modified it a little as i'm a vegetarian and we didn't have certain ingredients. It was certainly yummy, I want more now!

    I replaced the mince with vegetarian mince, and added organic Puy lentils instead of kidney beans! & Made my own homemade taco seasoning. - 2/28/09
