  1. I noticed on the beans it said...undrained. So do you drain the tomatoes or rotel?


  1. I can't believe I haven't rated this! I make it all the time and LOVE it. I had taco soup once at work and had never even heard of it. I looked at this recipe and love it because I always have everything on hand. Substitutions are easily made... last time I didn't have black beans and the flavor didn't suffer at all. Can simmer a really long time without anything getting soggy too.
  2. I sort-of followed the recipe and we really liked this (even though we are not big beans eaters). I drained and washed the beans before using, so I added extra water to compensate. Since we don't like spice, I omitted the rotel tomatoes. Also omitted the ranch dressing because I didn't have it. Very easy to make and change to suit all palates!
  3. This was very easy to make, and turned out great! I spent a little extra time shopping for the ingredients, reading labels of the canned items to find the lowest possible sodium content... well worth the time! I was even able to find lower sodium taco mix! The only thing I changed was the addition of 1 large garlic clove (minced). I will definitely remake this! My husband suggested a crunchy topping the next time I make it - I'll try some crushed tortilla chips.
  4. So good! And so easy...My husband made it while I was out shopping. How can it get any better!
  5. I was feeling a little under the weather the other night and this recipe looked good. I tried it and my husband and I loved it. And it was really easy to put together! I am making it again tonight! Thanks for the excellent recipe!
