Great, quick soup that uses ingredients we all usually have on hand. Loved this...I have to watch my salt intake, so I used all water instead of the broth but used a spicy chipotle salsa and there was plenty of flavor; didn't miss the broth at all. Love that this is healthy AND tasty. Thanks for a great recipe!

A keeper! Really delicious! I added 1 lb ground beef, 1/4 cup taco seasoning and a few shots of cholula...didnt use the corn. DH was recovering from dental surgery and I wanted to make him something easy to eat other than oatmeal or mashed potatoes and this was soooo good! Im keeping this in my reportoire...even for when no one is ailing,lol. Perfect for winter weather with some corn bread or crumbled saltines to soak up the yumminess.

OMG!!!THIS IS GREAT!! Wonderful flavor, easy to make, items that we always have on hand, no meat, and everyone in the family loved it!! I will be making this again & again & again &......The only things different are, I used Rotel tomatoes w/chiles and added crushed red pepper flakes. We put cheese & sour cream on top. This would be good with grilled Velvetta Mexican cheese sandwiches.

NUM! Super easy to throw together for tomorrow's lunch! I want to eat it all right now. I made it per the recipe except added in some fresh cilantro and a couple dried chilis for spice. I had everything already in my pantry.... It is a keeper!

Oh my gosh. We loved this soup. I picked is recipe only because I had some leftovers to use up. (7 layer bean dip and mexican corn dip) I used both of them in this recipe and it worked perfect. My guys thought it tasted like taco soup, but my DD not so much. We did add a pound of hamburger, and served it with chopped cilantro, corn chips and shredded cheese. Thanks so much for this tasty soup recipe that was ready in minutes!!! Loved it.

This is wonderful! I am a mum of four and have a bad flu this week. I wanted a soup to warm me. I didn't have the energy to make a complicated soup, but this was so simple I decided to give it a try. My 8 year old son and husband made this for me. I am not better, but I am feeling warm. A keeper, great to have on hand. Simple enough for a child to make with adult supervision. Thanks for posting Engrossed.

Delicious! I made as posted using hot everything and it sure was spicy hot. We loved it. I did throw on some sour cream before serving. We loved how the monterey jack cheese melted on this soup. Thanks for posting.

This is, by far, the best soup I have ever eaten! I'm addicted! I added 1 lb. browned ground beef and found I had no black beans on hand, so used canneloni beans instead. Otherwise followed recipe as written. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

yummy protein-packed soup!!! I added some leftover fajita chicken, chopped cilantro, about a tsp. of cumin, and omitted the salsa and 1/2 cup of water. The consistency was perfect without the additional water... thanks for an awesome recipe!

We loved this soup! I added some chipotle chili powder to make it a little spicier for our tastes. Thanks for sharing this quick and delicious recipe. We'll be having it again soon!
