I rated this recipe a 4 instead of a 5 because if I hadn't added extra taco seasoning, cayenne pepper, and chili pepper it would have been pretty bland. I also added a 4 oz can of green chilies. I had a 28 ounce can of stewed tomatoes and I am glad I used the whole can otherwise it wouldn't have been soup. My husband is not a fan of tomatoes so he thinks it would be much better with diced tomatoes, that way the tomatoes wouldn't be so big :)

One of my husband's favorite meals, especially since it is easy to reheat and have as a leftover. Also, we've made it on camping trips, because of how easy is to make and how many it feeds.
