This recipe was HORRIBLE. Unless you majorly doctor it up you will be majorly disappointed.
I thought this recipe was fabulous. I've made it twice now, each slightly different based on ingredients on hand. The first time I used 1 lb of lean ground beef, 1 can of niblets, 1 can of rotel tomatoes & green chilis (undrained) for spiciness, 1 can of diced tomatoes (undrained), 3 cans of black beans, 2 tbps of minced garlic, 3 tsp of cumin and 4 tsp of chili powder. I only added 8oz of beef broth because of the extra juice added by the can of Rotel tomatoes & green chilis. I also added kosher salt to taste. I also wanted to mention that I didn't drain the beef. Since I was using lean beef to start, I like to leave a little flavor in the small amount of beef fat simmered off. If I was using 80/20 I would have drained the beef for sure. I'm a seasoning buff, so I inevitably add garlic to almost any recipe, and up the seasoning amounts. It was AWESOME! I added a dash of sour cream to my finished soup to add a touch of coolness to the spice, made cornbread muffins on the side, and went to town. :P Thanks for such a wonderful, fast recipe that can be so easily manipulated to taste!
I used MSF veggie crumbles instead of ground beef, it was great! DH sprinkled some shredded cheddar on top too and loved it. Thanks for this quick, healthy dinner!
I replaced the ground beef with cubed chicken, but otherwise made as directed. I was a little worried about the amount of chili powder, but the soup turned out perfect with the listed 3 teaspoons. Thanks for a new keeper.
I liked this recipe and the family agreed it was good but it needed something. So when I made it again I browned the meat just enough so no pink was showing and added a medium onion and 2 cloves of garlic (chopped fine). I cooked the meat about five minutes longer. I also used a 32 ounce package of broth and Chipotle Chile Pepper instead of Chili Powder. Thanks for posting the recipe. We really enjoy a heartly soup like this.
Recently I made this soup and rated it, but after reheating the soup, I found I needed to edit my rating and post my review. After reheating the soup, I thought the soup had more flavor, as well as a bit more heat/spice to it, which I really liked. I did modify the recipe to my liking tho. I pretty much doubled the ingredients, but I found I needed to add 4 cans of the broth. I also added a bit of diced onion, 4 large cloves of garlic (minced), 1/4 of one red bell pepper (diced), and 1/2 of one green bell pepper (diced). I added 8 tsp of the chili powder, 2 tsp of beef boullion granules (as well as 2 tsp of the ground cumin). I simmered the soup for about 30 minutes (uncovered). The second day when I reheated the soup, I added some cooked spaghetti to it. If anyone decides to double this soup and wants to add cooked spaghetti, I found 6-8 ounces will do, but be sure to break the spaghetti into small pieces. Also, one more thing...I found when making this soup, and doubling the recipe, I think one could just add 3 cans of the broth, 3 cups of the corn, and 1 can of the black beans, and add the seasonings according to one's taste. Thank you Loves2Teach, for posting this recipe, as it was pretty good!!
Great! Used 1 can of black beans, an extra tsp of chili powder, a tsp of salt but I would recommend 1/2 tsp, an extra beef bouillon cube, and a little added sausage. Great quick, easy, filling soup. Highly recommend!
The beauty of this recipe is the "simplicity, easy to make, and the ingredients always at hand". It's another cold and overcast winter's day here in W N.C. and this was the on spot meal of the day! I made cornbread....http://www.recipezaar.com/84902 as an accompiniment, and the duo was awesome! A secondary benefit of this soup/stew is that it readily becomes a "dump" recipe for all those little things laying around in the fridge that you were just waiting for something to add them to. I ate it "as is" with cornbread, but then tossed in some "set-asides" green beans, green peas, and some carrots and onion......totally awesome! The cummin and chili powder are right on target! Healthy, sensible, ease....they don't often come in such a basic offering!
This was VERY good. Will make again.
This was delicious! We put doritos, sour cream, and a little shredded cheese on top. It made it alot like chili and it was delicious!
