Love this recipe! Not a fan of pinto beans so I leave those out and I use the petite diced tomatoes. The kicker- when we eat it. Add corn chips , shredded cheese and sour cream!! OMG! Making this right now. It IS #NationalTacoDay

This soup is wonderful. The sodium is high, however, I was able to find all canned items in low or no sodium which did not change the taste at all. I did add a chopped onion and a can of diced tomatoes. Thanks Taste of Home.

My family loves soup, especially now with the cold weather. Can't wait to try this one. I am also one who is never very good at following a recipe and soups is perfect for adding your own touches.

Great soup! I omitted the corn and the chilis since that’s heartburn overload. For all the whiners out there about the sodium intake, everything listed is generally sold with a low sodium version at the store now. Believe me, it’s not hard to find. I also scratched the stewed tomatoes for diced. Will make this again!

What do I do if I want the soup to be more in the pot?:)

Pretty good if you’re looking for a quick easy recipe. Some people will complain about anything and everything. As a professional athlete I understand that it’s important to have a healthy overall diet but not every meal has to be perfectly healthy. Your kids will be ok ??

I would think are many kids out there who would love a nice, hot bowl of soup for dinner. Much better than a bowl of cold cereal or the alternative of NOTHING. I think we need to stop being such food snobs. There is nothing wrong with feeding your family a hearty bowl of soup for dinner. Call me lazy but I can't wait to try this recipe. Thanks Taste of Home!

Overall this soup turned out great! My only issue was that the 1 1/2 cups of water was not nearly enough liquid! I ended up adding about double that amount. I substituted beef broth for the water and it was a great addition. I also only used black beans, two cans, and I used a whole bag of frozen corn instead of canned. It was a huge hit with my whole family!

I've made this before and it's really good. I updated it after awhile though because my husband likes thick soups so I add a can of refried beans in the mix.
