I lightened up this soup recipe by substituting black beans for the ground beef originally called for, and by topping off bowlfuls with reduced-fat sour cream and cheese. Spiral pasta adds a fun twist. —Colleen Zertler, Menomonie, Wisconsin

"This was great! I didn't have green pepper so added a can of mushrooms--still was wonderful."

"What a FANTASTIC soup! So much flavor! I changed a few things but am sure it would be fabulous as is. Used two cans of beans; one black and one tri - bean blend (pinto, black and red) used large onion and one whole large green pepper. Also added a half cup more pasta to the soup. It was better than chili and great for a meatless meal. SO filling!"

"Made this last night and my husband & I both really enjoyed it! Of course he would *really* enjoy it with some beef in it, but said it was great as-is! It's a keeper."

"This is a family favorite. My daughters love tacos, but my one daughter thinks she wants to be a vegetarian so she loved that this was with black beans. I serve it with toritlla chips and canned tropical tropical fruit on the side."

"For a meat-free soup, this was really filling. It was also very good. It was a nice change of pace from fish during Lent."

"Crumble in some tortilla chips like crackers to make it more "taco-like"."

"This is a delicious soup recipe. I used fire-roasted tomatoes for some extra flavor. Since I forgot to buy picante sauce I used salsa instead."

"Wonderful quick soup. Normally I shy away from quick soups and go for crock-pot recipes instead but I'm glad it gave it a shot. I cooked the green peppers along with the onions & garlic. I also added the whole jar of picante sauce (2 cups) and increased the broth by 1/4 cup. Next time I may add an extra 1/2 cup of pasta. Can't wait to eat the leftovers tomorrow."
