Reviews forSlow-Cooked Mexican Beef Soup
"This was not as flavorful as I was expecting, based on other reviews. I think some cilantro and a twist of lime might help."
"This soup has excellent flavor. I made mine without the beef/meat, it probably would have been better if it had been added but for an all veggie soup, YUM! It was quite spicy (I will omit the crushed red pepper flakes next time) and I felt like it was missing just a little tiny something so I added a pinch of 'McCormick Perfect Pinch Vegetable Seasoning' which added a very subtle sweet flavor to it that I felt made it just right :)"
"This was very good! The tomatoes and chilies gave it a kick (I left out the red pepper flakes at my husband's request). I forgot to put it in the slow cooker, so I used the pressure cooker instead. Still turned out great! I used baby carrots instead of cutting them. I also served it with corn bread. We had plenty for lunch the next day, too! I'll be making this one again!"
