Tasty toppings jazz up this no-fuss soup that has Mexican flair. The recipe for this sure-to-please soup was given to me by a friend. I make it often for company, and everyone asks for the recipe. You can substitute pinto beans in red chili sauce for the regular pinto beans and cumin called for in the recipe. —Michelle Larson, Greentown, Indiana

"I liked the soup but my honey RAVED about it. It freezes fabulously, and is hearty, and filling. I have even thawed some out and added left-over taco meat, spanish rice left-overs, and a bit more corn and beans to use up what I had, and stretch the soup even further."

"easy and delicious! To keep it gluten-free, instead of adding canned soup, add 1/4 cup uncooked rice and extra water— it turned out great. (Just needs extra cooking time until rice is done—20-30 min). I also seasoned with a taco seasoning packet."
