When I serve this soup at parties, everyone asks for the recipe. It makes a lot, so if I'm not feeding a crowd, I freeze the leftovers. —Jennifer Villarreal, Texas City, Texas

"Just tried this soup for dinner tonight. 1 2 3 EZ as it could be. Very tasty . A good diet soup if you are counting calories or points. Just rinse everything to lower the sodium and use low fat beef or chicken would be good too. Fast work night dish."

"I've made a version of this for years. I use 2 lbs of meat and 2 pkgs of taco seasoning and 2 of each, the corn, ranch style beans and I usually use 1 can of Rotel tomatoes and I can of diced. I also use 2 jars of Old El Paso Taco sauce. I have a large family so never any left, but it does freeze very well!"

"I make this all the time. I only use one can of beans as I am not a fan of beans. Really good with added rice."

"Excellent soup! I use only 1 can of corn. Instead of Ranch Beans, I use regular pinto, black or kidney beans--whatever kind of beans I have on hand. When I've mixed it all up, I put it in the microwave for 20 minutes instead of on the stove. It cooks great that way."

"Easy to make & delicious. I've made this as the recipe stated the first time & then I made it a 2nd time with a few changes. I used frozen corn, 1 can pinto, & 1 can black beans, 1 can diced tomatoes w/chilis plus 1 can diced tomatoes. Either way it hits the spot on a cold day."
