"Back when I was "Beachin'" this was probably one of my favorite recipes. Very easy to make and such a nice change from a piece of meat and veggies. This is Phase 1 appropriate, and tastes very good topped with shredded 2% cheddar, a dollop of plain yogurt, and avocado slices. Even non-dieters will enjoy this thick and hearty soup. NOTE: To stay true to South Beach be sure and buy canned kidney beans with no added sugar and taco seasoning that is South Beach approved. I used Old El Paso."

"Loved this. I doubled the recipe so I would have some to put in the freezer for lunches. Followed the recipe exactly as written other then I didn't measure out the taco seasoning, I used a whole packet. The only thing I would do different next time is to cut back on the water just a bit, maybe about half a cup."
"This is an awesome recipe...I used ground turkey instead of ground beef and it still turned out great."
"So yummy! I doubled the batch and substituted one can of diced tomatoes with a can of Rotel for a bit of a kick. I have been grazing on it for a few days now. :-)"
"This is a great recipe and pleases almost everyone. I tweaked the recipe a little and added thinly chopped zuchinni, frozen chopped spinach, and one can of rotel tomatoes. GREAT! Everyone got seconds!!!"
"2 words - Sooooo Goooood! I used the avacado, cheddar and yogurt, as well as adding some green onion. I'll be making and freezing this in batches."
"Perfect as is! Super easy weeknight meal for the whole family."
"Hands down the best South Beach recipe around. I may not always follow South Beach, but I still make this dish all the time. I am single and this is super simple to make and eat for a couple of day by myself or freeze and reheat later. It has more of a consistency of chili. I double the recipe so that I can use an entire package of ground turkey (doesn't calculate exactly, but definitely close enough)!"
"This is very similar to chili, only a bit thinner consistency. Nice flavour and easy to prepare. I subbed kidney beans to green beans out of necessity. I will make this again as we all enjoyed it. Thank you"
"This recipe is super easy and very tasty. I used TVP and a little more water, and it turned out great. I'll eat it a little slower next time though-- it was quite filling! Just underipe avocados held their own in the soup"
"I had a hankering for a hearty soup and found this one to satisfy my craving. I used Michael T's Taco Seasoning recipe rather than packaged (to suit a low sodium diet) and rather than beef I used a meatless substitute. Very tasty; very filling. Loved that there was cheese, yogurt and avacadoes too! Next time I'll double the recipe. Thank you AngelaTN."
"This is very good. I made this for our "one last pot of soup" before the summer weather. I did add half a can of corn and 2 T. of dried ranch dressing mix. We served this with corn chips, sour cream and shredded cheddar cheese. yummy, thank you for sharing."
"Quick to make, and super yummy! This was a big hit with my family too!"
"Very good recipe, I only wish I had splurged on 90/10 ground beef since it seems a little greasy with 85/15. I did not use kidney beans, I just don't care for them. This is a simple, tasty recipe that I whipped up this morning for my lunch today. Thank you for sharing Angela"
"Oh, Yummy...Yummy...Yummy! This was suprisingly delicious! I used Recipe #76616 in this and put a little mexican blend shredded cheese in my bowl of soup. It was very good! I will make this again, even when I'm not dieting. Delicious!"
"this was awesome - quite honestly, i made it for my grandfather who now can only eat pureed food, so, i'm finding he isn't really getting the protein he needs since blending meat is a little harder than veggies, but, i ate some of the non-blended version myself, and i'd definitely make this again. thanks for posting"
"This was really really delicious. I'm only day 4 of my south beach diet. Phase one being the hardest this really gave me encouragement that eating the SB way is doable. With great food like this recipe you can't go wrong. I made homemade quacamole dip to eat with this and it makes it a very creamy soup. I made double the servings as well, so I could freeze half for a night I don't have time to cook. I would recommend this to anyone. And it's totally guilt free"
"I didn't change a thing. My family loved it. I used Penzey's brand Bold taco seasoning, which is more complex than the store bought brands. Excellent recipe."
"I am on the south beach diet now and this was wonderful!!! Can't wait to take it to the girls at work for our lunch. I loved it!"
"5 year old, hubby and I loved this soup! I doubled the recipe and insead of doubling the onions and kidney beans I added in bell peppers and black beans. Yum!"
"This is an awesome soup!!! I just started SB today, and this make me feel as if I'm cheating. I doubled the recipe, but didn't have two cans of kidney beans, so I subbed some black beans. This is like chili but with a twist. Thanks for sharing this!!"
