    WoW! This was some seriously great soup! I used ground turkey instead of beef, and caned diced tomatos instead of rotel. It was GREAT! Even the bf loved it, and he hates everything healthy. Had the leftover with chips. Added some lite sour cream on top! YUM! - 11/16/09

    I've been making this soup/chili since 2001. I switched up a 40-30-30 recipe. I make my own taco seasoning to reduce the sodium, no ranch dressing (nothing packaged) or olives, black beans, minced garlic, LS chicken stock (depends on meat) instead of water, celery & fire-roasted tomatoes + Rotel. - 5/9/13
