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!"
"I love this soup. It is hearty, satisfying, and quick. I used all pinto beans and whole kernal corn. So good with cornbread!"
"This is sooo delicious with a dollop of sour cream. Instead of lima beans, I use 2 cans of kidney beans."
