Reviews for Big Red Soup
"I thought this soup was okay but not good enough for a five stare rating."
"This is fantastic.....didn't change spices, but did with ingredients. I had leftover jalapeño, used that plus used just one can tomatoes, one can rotel tomatoes with green chilies. I omitted the chicken broth. I added also one can white cannelini beans, one can chili beans. We love the taste of Nalleys canned chili so also put in two adobo peppers in chipotle sauce for that familiar smoky southwest flavor. So very tasty... will make again!!"
"This soup has AWESOME flavor! The corn tortillas & shredded cheese make it even yummier. If you don't like the corn tortillas though, try adding some cooked penne pasta to your individual bowls. It was very good that way too. Will definitely be making this again. Great soup!"
"One of our favorite recipes! So yummy! I've even substituted ground beef."
"This was great! I added pinto beans with jalepenos. Next time I might add some beer."
"This soup got a thumbs up! from our church fellowship. I substituted crushed tomatoes for the diced and omitted the tortillas, serving tortilla chips on the side. Instead of the water, I used beef broth. Mixed shredded Monterey Jack with sharp cheddar cheese for the topping. Served with hot sauce, too. I simmered it on the stove for five hours and transferred to the slow cooker the next day."
