I use a similar recipe found LONG AGO in 1998's annual Taste of Home cookbook. Try these changes to make it 5 stars: sub one can of chili beans for one of the cans of pintos, add a can of Rotel tomatoes, I use a can of "mexican" diced tomatoes instead of the regular diced tomatoes, and finally add the seasoning packets to the soup after all ingredients are combined -NOT to the meat as it cooks. I have never used onion although I'm sure it would be good. Very tasty! A household favorite!
