Reviews for Taco Twist Soup
"This was great! I didn't have green pepper so added a can of mushrooms--still was wonderful."
"What a FANTASTIC soup! So much flavor! I changed a few things but am sure it would be fabulous as is. Used two cans of beans; one black and one tri - bean blend (pinto, black and red) used large onion and one whole large green pepper. Also added a half cup more pasta to the soup. It was better than chili and great for a meatless meal. SO filling!"
"Made this last night and my husband & I both really enjoyed it! Of course he would *really* enjoy it with some beef in it, but said it was great as-is! It's a keeper."
"This is a family favorite. My daughters love tacos, but my one daughter thinks she wants to be a vegetarian so she loved that this was with black beans. I serve it with toritlla chips and canned tropical tropical fruit on the side."
"Parfait pour les lundis sans viandes. Excellent!"
"For a meat-free soup, this was really filling. It was also very good. It was a nice change of pace from fish during Lent."
"Crumble in some tortilla chips like crackers to make it more "taco-like"."
"This is a delicious soup recipe. I used fire-roasted tomatoes for some extra flavor. Since I forgot to buy picante sauce I used salsa instead."
"Wonderful quick soup. Normally I shy away from quick soups and go for crock-pot recipes instead but I'm glad it gave it a shot. I cooked the green peppers along with the onions & garlic. I also added the whole jar of picante sauce (2 cups) and increased the broth by 1/4 cup. Next time I may add an extra 1/2 cup of pasta. Can't wait to eat the leftovers tomorrow."
"This was dinner today...Great soup. The only sub I made was to use pinto beans as I didn't have the black beans....Will make again."
"This was really good and so easy and quick to make! I added a little extra pasta, broth and seasonings to stretch it a little bit. Also used a little salsa that needed to be used up, along with the picante sauce. Overall, a delicious soup that I will definitely make again!"
"I used medium Pace picante sauce and Rotel hot tomtoes and green chilis. I also added burger. This was a really tasty soup that is really quick to make. This will be on the menu rotation. YUM!"
"Oh, wow! I almost didn't make this because I thought my 9 year old might not like the seasonings but I put it together, added some ground beef and a can of corn. This soup was SO good! And my daughter RAVED!"
