An excellent quick and easy meal! Did I mention excellent? Extremely tasty and gets even better as it sits and flavors blend. I ate 4 bowls, and now logged in to make my first review (ever) for this one! The only thing I added, since I'm a spicy lover, was adding some Thai hot sauce in the bowl. Will try doubling the refried beans next time for experiments sake. Thank you!

This soup is fantastic - I can't believe it's so easy! We like the taste and texture best with 2 cans of refried beans instead of just the one. Done in a crock pot, it's a an easy, fuss-free meal we all love. Besides garnishing with chips and cilantro (Daughter doesn't like it so I don't stir it in), we also add chopped avocado to our bowls.

This is a great soup, made even better by the fact that you can have a very large bowl and feel no guilt. :o) I noticed that the refried beans weren't included in the nutritional information, but by my calculations, the calories still come out at only 167 per serving.

I made the recipe as is except for adding some cayenne pepper and subbing white hominy for the corn. Delicious and so easy!

VERY yummy and SO easy to make!! I followed the recipe but doubled the amount of corn. Also, rather that using broken tortilla chips, I cut up a couple of corn tortillas into strips and fried them in a bit of oil before I made the soup. Delicious!

No complaiints here about this very tastey, super easy dinner! I did tweak the ammounts of things a bit as I went. I made half the recipe but used most of the refried beans, and almost all the black beans (would have used them all but I wanted them for a wrap tomorrow lol) Didn't have corn tortillas so I cut a few flour tortillas into strips and fried them up in a little oil with some salt. Topped with sour cream and sharp cheddar. The rotel tomatoes only came in a 10oz can so I used half a can of store brand diced tomatoes and chilis. The Rotel's are definately better and hotter. Thanks for this recipe, I'm pretty sure I'll make this again. UPDATE; Just back to add that I've made this many times. It's a recipe I just keep coming back to. It freezes well and everyone loves it!

Love it! I didn't double the refried beans as some suggested but next time I will, it was great just as it was though!

My boyfriend loved this soup. It's really easy to make and comes together quickly. I added a big scoop of sour cream and a corn tortilla to the soup for a little extra something. Served with corn tortilla strips (baked in the oven) and pepper jack cheese. Something I've been asked to make again. Thanks for posting.

I've been looking for a vegetarian tortilla soup for years! I love the creamy texture of this soup. I added a small onion. I didn't have any veggie broth so I substituted a can of low-sodium V-8 and water. It turned out great. Next time I make this I am going to serve it on top of cornbread. Thank you!
