"My husband really enjoyed this. I did substitute canned tomatoes with green chiles in them instead of the plain tomatoes. The second time I used chicken instead of ground beef. I serve this with a dollop of sour cream sprinkled with grated cheese and chopped green onions."

"Very easy to make & everyone loved it. My husband added salsa and chilies to his as it wasn't spicy enough for him, but it was just right for me. We added shredded cheese, sour cream and crushed tortillas to it when we served it. We will definitely be making this again."

"Very easy to make & delicious! I used only 1 pound of hamburger as i don't like alot of meat & i used pureed tomatoes so that i didn't need to do it myself like the recipe says. I also garnished with cheese, tomato slices & sour cream. We had Tostidos with the soup & it was sooo good!"

"I added another can of beans and a small can of mild green chilies. I loved how it instructed me to blend up the tomatoes. Made it a lot more kid friendly. Delicious!"
