We first sampled this chili-like soup at a church dinner. It's a warming dish on a cold day. And since it uses packaged seasonings and several cans of vegetables, it's a snap to prepare. —Glenda Taylor, Sand Springs, Oklahoma

"I had a friend make this at a get together and it was delicious. She didn't drain any of the ingredients and neither do I. I add my normal spices, garlic, onion, Tony's creole, salt and pepper. Plus the ranch and taco season. Perfect fall and winter meal. It was cooler in my area so I had to make it."

"The taco seasoning & ranch make this recipe. I use veggie broth instead of water, I add green beans, I use diced flat iron steak not ground beef. I also use black beans instead of chili beans. I drain everything except tomatoes. Adding ur favorite salsa is awesome too."

"We loved this soup tonight. It has been a dreary, overcast day and this soup was perfect comfort food. I followed the recipe exactly and we have some left over for lunch tomorrow. I highly recommend this recipe.

"I make this often and, as with many recipes, I make changes such as adding an onion and not draining the corn before adding it. Sometimes I pour it over rice or pasta and top it with shredded cheese. It's even better the next day and kids like to use tortilla chips as edible spoons."
