We love this recipe at our house! I use shredded chicken instead of beef and it is wonderful. Now I am going to try using it in my OAMC menu. Thanks!!

When you said, "this recipe will feed my family multiple times." you were NOT kidding! It's me, DH, teenage son & toddler daughter. We loved this recipe & it's a good thing too. I did put half in the freezer but I should have divided it into 4 separate bags instead. Next time I will. The good news is that I can testify to all the ways this recipe can be served. The first serving was soup-like but after that it began to thicken up a little more every time we re-heated or thawed & re-heated, so that gave us several options. We ate it like soup with sour cream & taco chips, we tried it Cincinnatti style (over spaghetti noodles), we put it on hamburger buns like sloppy joes & we used it to top a green salad with some sour cream & taco chips for taco salad. Id say 5-star worthy on versatility alone! Thanks a bunch, Knobbyknee!

This was really good, perfect for a chilly night. I used a 13 oz. can of chicken instead of the beef and black beans instead of the pinto beans. I also buy taco seasoning and ranch dressing mix in large containers at Sam's Club, and 3 Tablespoons is what I used (of each) to equal a packet of each (a little extra of the taco seasoning one). The flavor was great, but the larger size of the stewed tomatoes seemed like they didn't belong...I might cut 'em up a little next time. My husband put cheddar cheese on his serving, and I made beer bread to go with this. I'm gonna freeze the rest today. Thanks!

YUM!!! This was so good on a cold night. I made this for a road trip in our RV to Niagara Falls. After the Falls we traveled thru NH and the White Mountains. This was perfect to go from the freezer to the slow cooker. After a long day in the mountains, hoping to see a moose, we had a wonderful hot meal to come "home" to. I did use frozen corn instead of canned and subbed black beans for the kidney beans. We topped the soup with cheddar cheese and sour cream. Corn chips on the side.....yummy!!

This is tasty, and it makes a huge batch. It nearly overflowed my 4 1/2 quart dutch oven. Texture is close to chili, but the flavor is definitely taco. This was a bit mild for our taste, so I added more taco seasoning, as well as salt and pepper. I also substituted black beans for the pinto beans. Nice recipe; I anticipate the leftovers will freeze nicely.

We love this! We enjoyed it so much that we decided to cook this for one of our large family game nights. It was a huge hit. We ended up passing out print outs of it as they left. Thank you so much for sharing this. It has been chosen as a family favorite!

I LOVE IT!!! It is yummy, especially with a scoop (or two) of cold sour cream on top of the hot soup. Next time I'm going to skip the meat to make it a diet dish. I'm thinking with the scoop of light or fat free sour cream, it would then only be a couple points (if that) for weight watchers. THANKS FOR THE RECIPE!!
