I followed this recipe exactly. Used Modelo Especial as the beer (light Mexican beer), drained/rinsed both cans of beans, and used the Bill Echols taco seasoning. It had a great flavor with the perfect amount of spice! I'm from Texas, and this was as good as my favorite TexMex restaurant tortilla soup. I used three frozen chicken breasts, left it all in the crockpot for 8 hours on low and 1 hour on warm (waiting for guests to arrive). I shredded the chicken straight in the crockpot instead of dirtying another dish. I had avocado slices, pico de gallo (premade at HEB), chopped cilantro, tortilla chips, and shredded cheddar for guests to add as toppings. And last but certainly not least, I squeezed half of a key lime over each serving - really gives it a nice fresh zing! Definitely will make this again.
