Reviews for Simple Taco Soup

"Has anyone ever made this in a crockpot? Just putting it all together and slow cooking for a few hours? Wanting to do that today on this rainy day!"
"It was a good recipe, but wasn't a WOW recipe. (We also added sour cream, shredded cheddar, crushed chips.) It was an easy recipe to throw together on a weeknight, but not one I would choose over my normal chili dish or even our chicken enchilada soup staple."
"My whole family and my Girl Scout Troop all love this soup. You can control how spicy it is and the girls especially love adding cheese, chips, tomatoes, some even like to put lettuce on top. It's a staple in my house and on Girl Scout overnights!"
"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!P."
"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."
