This turned out really good. Husband and son really liked it. Topped it with cheese and a little sour cream and don't forget a few crushed up corn tortillas. For a fast throw together on a cool Saturday night it was good. I did use fire roasted rol tel tomatoes and accidental opened sweet canned corn.

This is a great base recipe, and I'm saying that because I think I kind of changed it quite a bit to suit our liking. Instead of the chili powder, I used a packet of taco seasoning. Like another commenter, I exchanged one can of the black beans for a can of pintos, since I only had one can of each. I also added 1/2 C. of chopped sweet onion, and a small jalapeno, diced and seeded. I'm supposed to be watching my sodium levels, but I was okay with using the packet of taco seasoning because I used low-sodium beans and low-sodium tomatoes. Topped it with a little grated cheese, and some slices of avocado, along with the chips. Quite delicious! ??

I like the concept. I would add aromatics such as onions, green, red and/or jalapenos and garlic, along with adding onion and garlic powder for more flavor. Of course, salt and pepper to taste too.

Quick, easy and delicious! The only change I made was replacing one can of black beans with kidney beans.

Very bland, but it was simple and the kids liked it.

We found this to be very bland. Had to add all kinds of spices and salt for some flavor. A packet of taco seasoning would really help, unfortunately I didn't have any. I have another recipe for taco soup, I think I'll stick to it.

Tried this tonight, added 1/2 chopped sweet onion and reduced the Chili Powder to 1/2 Teaspoons. (2 teaspoons chili powder is too overpowering, in my opinion) It was great! Served with Cornbread.

Very simple and very delicious! I served it with a side of warm cornbread muffins and honey, and my family loved it. Definitely a keeper!
