  1. I made this recipe for a family the other day, thought the kids would really like it. Just did it on the stove and couldn't believe how easy it was - and how yummy! I only added one can of beans, and it seemed like enough for them. I made it last night for my husband and I - and he just absolutely loved it! It is sort of like chili - but not. It really is a taco in a bowl. We put the corn chips on the bottom and then topped the soup with cheese and sour cream. It is very filling and satisfying - and so easy and delicious - all the right ingredients. Next time I will try it in the crockpot!
  2. **** 1/2 Stars. Super simple to make. Very tasty and filling...I have three kids they all loved it (though one is of the opinion we are just tricking her to eat chili -- but she still ate all she was served). We like to top it with pleanty of cheese, sour cream and cilantro and serve with tortilla chips. We substitute a can of 'Ro-tel'-like Meexican style tomatoes in place of the can of diced tomatoes and the can of chilis, and like to use two cans of kidney and one can of black beans. I also like to throw in several sprigs of cilantro near the last hour or two of cooking. We've had this 3 or 4 times in the past month since first making it and made it one of our 'regulars'.
  3. Super easy to make and more like a stew/chili type than a soup, very thick and hearty. I did add more stewed tomatoes and served over crushed fritos with a sprinkle of cheese and dab of sour cream on top. Very good, will make again.
  4. Excellent soup...my sister-in-law made this for me and I couldn't stop raving about it...this will be a keeper recipe in my house!
  5. I liked this but got mixed reviews from the family. My daughter thought that it tasted too much like chili and said to just stick with my chili recipe. However, it was very simple and nice to have mixed up in the crock pot.


  1. I used to make this as directed. But the only change I have made over the years is to used chili beans. I like the flavor the sauce gives the beans
  2. Very easy, very good! We substituted ground turkey for the beef, simmered it in the crock pot for a couple of hours and ate it with corn chips. Will definitely make again!
  3. After reading some reviews, I really didn't want it to taste too much like chili so I substituted shredded chicken for the ground beef, substituted enchilada sauce for tomato sauce and used black, pinto and kidney beans.....OMG YUMMMMMMMMMMY! We are making it again tonight!
  4. This soup is very tasty with a dollop of sour cream on top. I'd only give it 3 stars without it. We used kidney beans, black beans, and pinto beans. Next time I'm going to try hominy instead of corn. Makes a bunch, and tastes even better the second day.
  5. This is a gr8 recipe! I used ground pork in place of grnd beef. I wld agree that it's a smoke screen for a chili recipe tho. We enjoyed it, and, will look fwd to it throughout the Winter season. Thank you.
