I did not feel like cooking this came in handy as can be. Had everything but the black beans. We loved this. Has a good spicey taste. I added some celery and bell pepper and carrots. Topped with sour cream and tortilla chips. Very Good.

This soup is fabulous and so easy to make. All those different beans gave an interesting flavor and appearance. The seasoning with the taco mix and ranch mix was quite good. We ate on this a couple of days and then I froze the rest for later. Thanks Junebug. My family and I love this soup.

This was wonderful! I couldn't find the kidney beans, so I added hominy instead. Topped it off with sour cream and a little cheese and it was great!

Very quick, very tasty, spicy, and made A LOT! Left out the green beans since I didn't have any on hand. Used Rotel with Lime and Cilantro, and Margaret Holmes Seasoned Pinto Beans un-rinsed. Topped with sour cream, sliced green onions and sharp cheddar. Ate so much I was miserable.................but couldn't wait to have it again for lunch the next day ;o)

This was so salty it was inedible. With this much sodium, there's no way you can call this healthy. I ended up straining off all the broth and starting over in order to avoid throwing it all away. If you want to try this recipe, I would recommend adding the ranch dressing mix and taco seasoning a little at a time and tasting as you go.

Simple soup, easy to prepare with wonderful flavor! I used low sodium vegetable broth instead of water and cannellini beans instead of the pinto, as that is what I had on hand. Otherwise I made this recipe as directed. I sprinkled with crushed blue corn tortilla chips and a little shredded Monterey Jack cheese. We will most definitely make this again. Thank you, Junebug!

I never thought I would try this recipe as we love our meat, but this is really good. A friend of mine tried it and had me taste, so delicious. I am planning on making it for my family next week so hope they like as much as i did. The veggies are a nice alternative to the meat. Thank you for posting and opening my eyes to more food.

I made this recipe and allowed it to sit until dinnertime, roughly 2+ hours. I let my family know there were condiments on hand they may want to add (cheese, chips and sour cream) and off I went to work. Shortly after dinner, I received an enthusiastic email from my family praising this recipe. Thanks Junebug! This recipe is a Mom's best friend.
