"We first sampled this chili-like soup at a church dinner," writes Glenda Taylor of Sand Springs, Oklahoma. "It's a warming dish on a cold day, and since it uses packaged seasonings and several cans of vegetables, it's a snap to prepare."

"Haven't made this yet, but as I'm raising 3 grandchildren and ALWAYS on the hunt for good, simple AND easy...I will be happy to try it!

Adding garlic and onions seems logical to me..come to think about..adding garlic and onions to ANYTHING containing ground meat sounds like it should be etched in granite!

"I added chopped onion and garlic when browning the ground beef. Drained it. I added 1 can of northern white chili beans instead of Pinto beans. I didn't add the can of chiles. The diced tomatoes and chiles where plenty hot enough. I added 1 cup of rice and 4 cups water. Put a dash of red pepper and sugar and salsa. Then added colby/monteray jack cheese to cut the spice down."

"This was easy and tasty! I had hamburger and chorizo already cooked from a previous meal so it came together fast! I did add some chopped onion and beef base for a richer flavor. I will make this again!"
