This is one of my favourite recipes since I discovered it here more than a year ago. It's so simple and quick to make; I always have a few servings stored in the freezer for lunches. Sometimes I can't find Great Northern Beans but Black Beans or even Kidney Beans work well too. I always add a whole 900 ml container of Chicken Broth and the consistancy still comes out great. We don't have Rotel where I live so I usually throw in some green chillis or a jalapeno, depending what I have on hand. Great recipe!

This tastes great and is so easy to throw together with stuff that I always have in my pantry! When I made this I only got 8, 1 cup servings, and I followed the directions exactly except I did not drain the corn. But, you can't go wrong with a delicious and filling soup that is only 3 WW points per serving! I will definitely be making this again!

Great recipe! I only made a few of changes. I omitted the onion, since my family doesn’t care for onions, and I reduced the taco seasoning to ½ a pack to cut down on the sodium and the heat. Also, I used dark red kidney beans instead of great northern beans and added ½ pound of ground turkey. I cooked the turkey the night before, then dumped everything in my crock pot on Sunday morning and let it cook on low for about 4 hours. When we got home from church it was perfect. We topped it with fat free sour cream and a little reduced-fat shredded cheese and ate it with low fat tortilla chips. Everyone in the family (including husband and three teens) thought it was delicious. It was just zesty enough with out being too spicy. I mentioned maybe adding an extra can of beans next time, but my teenage daughter said that she thought it was perfect just the way it was. I love when I find a new, easy recipe that everyone likes. I will definately be making this again.

I like this because it's VERY easy to make and delicious. I am making it right now and have just tasted it as it simmers. Don't let the Nutrition Facts fool you, for some reason the Great Northern Beans, Taco Seasoning and Refried Beans are not included in the calculations. It's still very much worth making!!

WOW - this is YUMMY!! I must admit, I was skeptical as to how this would be a *soup* with only 1 can of chicken broth, but it did turn into a soup. I followed the directions exactly, but used low sodium taco seasoning, corn, and beans along with fat-free low-sodium chicken broth. I got 10 1-cup servings which were 220-ish grams each. I ate one and froze the rest for grab'n'go lunches. THANKS for sharing!

I've made this a couple of times in the slow cooker and it turns out really good! I opt to not use the can of Rotel, but instead just use regular diced tomatoes. The last time I made this, I added dices carrots and it was great!

I love bean soups and this one's no exception. I cut the recipe in half so I used the black beans but left out the great northern beans. I also used spicy diced tomatoes and a whole can of corn. Thanks for posting such a delicious and quick to prepare recipe.

This soup is DELICIOUS!! I followed the recipe exactly, in a slow cooker, and it turned out amazing. We crumbled tortilla chips and topped with cheese and it was perfect. I wasn't sure if I should drain the beans, as the recipe only states to drain the corn, so I didn't, but I was wondering if I should have? Either way, amazing recipe, will for sure be making again and again!!

I love this recipe! I tried it the first time on Saturday. It was so easy and is so full of flavor. I couldn't find Rotel tomatoes, so I added a can of diced tomatoes with green chillis. I also used a bag of frozen corn rather than canned corn. We had it with Sweet Potato Tortilla Chips. What a wonderful combination. Sure did warm us up on a cold winter day!
