Reviews for Contest-Winning Taco Soup
"This was fabulous. I left out the Lima beans only because my husband is not a fan. I did throw all in crock pot on high for four hours. I served with pumpkin corn bread from Trader Joes."
"This soup is delicious! After only serving it once, family members were requesting it! very easy too!"
"This is sooo delicious with a dollop of sour cream. Instead of lima beans, I use 2 cans of kidney beans."
