"Fabulous recipe! I made a few changes for our family; omitted the beans and subbed chicken broth for the beer. I also used mexicorn for extra flavor. Came out really yummy and was even better topped with cheese, sour cream, and fresh avocado slices! My two year old gobbled it up! Thanks for sharing."
"I've made this at least a dozen times. I love the simplicity of the ingredients but the complexity of flavor! Definitely a family favorite and a great soup to impress company! I've done it with beer and also substituting the beer with chicken broth... while my personal preference is with beer, it tastes amazing both ways. Try adding clove of minced garlic and some fresh chopped cilantro. YUM!"
"This is a fantastic super easy recipe that everyone will love. My 4 year old usually eats 2 bowls of this when I make it."
"Loved it! Next time I will adjust the heat for my kids by adding diced tomatos and chopped chilis instead of the rotel. Gave half and got a 5 star rating from her family as well!"
"OMG! This is by far one of the best taco soups I have ever had! I'm living in Italy, and I made it and invited our Italian neighbors over for dinner, and they loved it! Such a great recipe! I'm so glad I found it! Thanks!"
"This is one of my favorite recipes of all time. I give it five stars because, even though it's not gourmet, it's 1) ridiculously easy to make 2) quick 3) very healthful, as long as you don't go crazy with the cheese/sour cream and 4) cheap! As a busy mom with not a whole lot of money, I think this dish is perfect. It also tastes divine - not a requirement when feeding a huge family, by any means, but certainly a huge bonus. Love it!"
"For me, the beer in this overwhelmed the dish. Maybe it was my choice in beer, I used Budweiser because that is what hubby drinks. I like Bud but I thought it took over this recipe. I followed this recipe as written other then I keep shredded chicken in my freezer so I added that the last half an hour of cooking instead of using the whole boneless breasts and then shredding. I took this to work for lunch and someone commented when I was heating it up about the beer smell. I think I would try this again but maybe use beef broth instead of beer. I am sure there are others that would love the beer taste but it just wasn't for me and my family. I also didn't have to cook this as long as noted. I cooked this on low for four hours. I topped it with cheddar cheese when serving. This does make a lot."
"This wonderful soup is more like chili, really, but still completely terrific. I followed the recipe almost exactly, except I can't get tomatoes with chilies where I live, so I used regular canned tomatoes. I will definitely make this again, but since I live alone and this makes QUITE a huge portion of soup, I won't have to make it again for a while!"
"Tasty, healthy and easy. Definitely a keeper. "
