    Easy, great taste. I used 4 cups beef broth and 2 cups weater. Also added some celery when browning the beef, onion and garlic. Will make again.

    The soup was wonderful! I used a can od Diced Tomatoes with Habaneros instead of Jalapenos, and added an extra can of Diced tomatoes and a little water to add more liquid. We paired it with mini Mexican cornbread muffins and dinner was delicious! This will become a regular in our house.

    My family already calls this soup one of their favorites! I did add a quarter cup of chopped celery to my hamburger meat as it was browning and an additional four cups of beef broth to this recipe so there was more liquid to the soup. With a pan of homemade cornbread, this soup was a wonderful dinner on a cold evening. Yum-yum!

    Excellent and spicy. Did add a few beef bouillon cubes and another tablespoon of taco seasoning, but that was a personal preference.

    This was an amazing soup. Everyone in the family loved it and ate every last scoop. I would recommend this to anyone.

    Loved this! I used petite diced tomates with habaneros and it was very good. My husband loved it and I will be making it often. It is good served with cornbread as well as chips. I sprinkled cheese over the top when serving.

    Fantastic! I added 1 can tomato paste and used diced tomatoes with habanero peppers instead of jalapenos. Next time will add cilantro while browning the meat in addition to the garnishment on top. Also added tsp lime juice before topping with sour cream and cilantro. Entire family raved, will definitely make this again.

    This is a great soup for a cold night, it was also easy to make. I just pared it with cornbread, my husband is not a soup fan, and he had 2 heaping bowls. I will make this again, we both enjoyed it.

    Love this soup! I printed it out on 11/11/09 and have already made it several times since then. My husband and I like it way better than chili and have not made chili since making this soup. I add a few jalapeno peppers and corn from our garden that I have in my freezer. I also make my own taco seasoning to cut down on the salt besides omitting the salt that is called for in the recipe. We garnish our soup w/sour cream, chopped green onion, cheddar cheese, and crushed whole grain tortilla chips.

    This is the best..just enough of a bite..not too hot. I left out the corn. I couldn't find the canned tomatoes with chiles so I purchased the chiles seperately in a small can and added that. A crowd pleaser, making it for Super Bowl Sunday!

    I thought the soup was yummy and will definitely make it again. My only suggestion is, when reheating add more fresh cilantro. The cilantro really finishes the soup and disappears when reheated.

    Easy and delicious. Can substitute any meat for the ground beef.

    I put a crock pot full of this soup in the teachers lounge at the school where I work. It was gone in less than 45 minutes. I didn't even get a bowl! Everybody loved it on a 30 degree day in sunny Florida. I omitted the cilantro (just because I don't like it.) Put a bag of tortilla chips next to the crock-pot and everybody is happy!

    We loved this recipe. We added chicken broth instead of beef and chose the spicy taco seasoning rather than the regular. We also went with all yellow corn for the color and sprinkled cilantro on the top when served. Just awesome. Nice spicy flavor, beautiful colors, and filling. Yummy! We served this with raspberry applesauce on the side and that was it. Definately adding this to the "make often" list!!

    Easiest, tastiest soup I've made in a long time. I substituted black-eyed peas once when I didn't have any black beans and it was just as tasty. I leave out the cilantro and it doesn't seem to make a difference.

    My husband made this the other night, but he used ground turkey instead of the beef and added a bit more seasoning including some cayenne pepper. It was wonderful and perfect for a cold night. We are definitely making this again.

    Since I don't eat meat, I used Morningstar Farms Crumbles instead of ground meat and vegetable broth instead of beef broth. I also omitted cilantro since I don't care for it. My soup was great! Great with cornbread or served over brown rice.

    Loved the flavor! Spicy but not too! I really liked the touch of cilantro and sour cream. I served a skillet of cornbread with the soup. This made a wonderful meal. I'm sharing the recipe with my Sister-In-Law in MI. I'm sure she'll love it too!

  • Linda74 Posted: 11/16/09

    Quick and easy to make. I used ground turkey instead of beef, also used beef and chicken boullion. I didnt have canned tomatoes with peppers so used 2 cans diced tomatoes and 1/4 cup Picante Sauce, Gave it a nice punch. Omitted the taco seasoning and used 1T chili powder..Served with cornbread of course!!

    Pulled this recipe out when I needed to make something last-minute for game-day. Very easy but tastes like there were a lot of ingredients and time spent making it! The guys kept mumbling with their mouths full,"Mmm, dis's good." Then I heard the sound of spoons scraping the bottom of the bowl. Already planning to make it again this week and is on the Christmas menu.

    Great soup overall. Lots of substance and taste. I could not find the tomatoes with jalapeños so I used diced tomatoes and then added some diced jalapeños from a jar to make up for it. Corn muffins go great with this soup.

    This is a wonderful and fairly easy recipe. I left out the cilantro and added tortillas to make a great version of a tortilla soup. This great for winter days.
