Reviews for Pronto Taco Soup
"Supper Yummy! So easy to make. I often double for bigger groups. I like throwing black beans in--gives more color and nutrition. This is my son's favorite soup."
"My husband and son love this soup. It's great because you can make it as spicy as you like. To add some nutrition to my son's diet, I also throw in a can of beans. He doesn't even realize they're in there."
"Very good soup. Add some Tabasco and sour cream to really top it off."
