Reviews for Mexican Bean Soup
"Ive been making this for a while now and the family LOVES it. The taco seasoning makes it perfect..... great job."
"I have already used this recipe many times. However, I halve the ingredients as it makes a lot. This recipe is quick and simple."
"The soup was very good. It kind of tasted like the chili we make though. It's good with chips crushed into it; you just have to eat it before the chips get soggy. :)"
"prett yyummy i didnt add the cayenne because it was already pretty spicy for my little boys to handle. I also used ground turkey and loved the blend of flavors. id call it mexican chili - thats pretty much what it is :)"
"The whole family loved it. I am making it again but kicking up the spice factor a little bit with hot taco seasoning."
