Questions & Replies

  1. Would love recommendations for taco seasoning.
  2. heatin directions
  3. Do I use regular diced tomatoes or diced tomatoes in tomato juice? And also regular sized or petite sized diced tomatoes?
  4. Can you use canned chicken, or does that get too mushy


  1. This is an awesome soup! It had great taste, and this recipe was great on a cold night like tonight! I made it with 3 chicken breats, cubed. I also didnt have any Rotel tomatoes and chilies so I used a small can of regular tomatoes. And then also great northern beans for the white beans. SUPERB!! I served it with dollops of sour cream and cheddar jack cheese. Thanks for a winner!!
  2. I have made this for years and it is a family favorite. This recipe freezes well, I try to keep several single serving sized containers of it in my freezer for brown bagging at work.
  3. This was so easy to make and the combination of spices made for wonderful flavor!! This will definitely be a keeper!!
  4. This was really good. I added about a 1/2 cup of rice and cooked it on low about 6 hours. Served with cornbread. Thank you for a great recipe.
  5. I have a 12-year-old and he gives this two thumbs up! I had pre-cooked groung beef and fresh frozen corn in the freezer so I just thawed them overnight. I added the canned goods in the morning and put the slow cooker on low and went to the game! Supper was ready when we got home! I pureed the tomatoes in my food processor to get out the chunks and it was a hit. I topped with cheese and sour cream and put tortilla chips on the side. One happy kid! Thanks for the great addition to my collection.


  1. Used crumbles by Morning Star instead of meat, so my wife could enjoy it too. Also used black beans (drained) instead of pinto.
  2. Substitute 16 oz. Beyond meat ground beef and organic, non-GMO canned beans and tomatoes. The tomatoes used were fire roasted.
  3. I used ground beef. I cooked the meat with onions and garlic then toasted the spices. I used pinto beans and drained black beans. I puréed one 14 oz can of diced tomatoes and left one as is. I also added 4 oz of chicken broth and used frozen corn. Smells delicious! Can’t wait to taste it!
  4. I made this soup on Wednesday and let me tell you my husband and son loved it. The only thing I did different was I added Johnsonville Hot Ground Italian Sausage to the ground beef and used Rotel instead of the diced tomatoes.
  5. Scrumptious, easy one-pot meal. A trifle salty for my palette, so next time I will rinse the beans and substitute water or low-salt broth. I used left-over roasted chicken, 28-oz can Rotel w/ Chilies and 14-oz can tomatoes, substituted black beans and kidney beans, and added one onion (chopped and sauteed) and 1/2 cup rice, Served with choice of warm, buttered tortillas or corn bread. Yum!
