good, easy soup. great weeknight meal. I made a couple of changes though: added more garlic (2 more cloves), sliced jalapenos, I drained the beans, 1/4 c. finely chopped bell pepper, 1 c. small pasta and about 1/4 c. salsa. Also, doubled the beef broth since I added the pasta. Topped with sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese, crushed tortilla chips and some fresh lime juice. It was very good this way!

This recipe was just okay, nothing special. I give it 4 stars with the addition of tomato paste.

Very good soup. My family doesn't care for hot and spicy so I left out the garlic, jalapenos and cilantro, and increased the onion to one medium onion, well browned. Still had good flavor. I used beef. I'll try turkey sometime, too. I used whole grain tortilla chips which went very well with the soup. I also used grated cheddar cheese on top. I ran the ingredients (including toppings) through my calorie calculator and came up with 294 calories for 1.5 cup serving. (carbs: 24.3, pro: 19.3, fib: 4.8, fat: 13.8, sat fat: 6.1) The recipe made 10 cups.

Very good and simple, I added chopped jalapenos and hot sasla, it was spicy but I like that.

Gave this 5 stars because it was so fast to make and the flavor was good.

I only used 1 cup of beef broth, and I used a can of refried beans since it was all I had... I thought it tasted perfect; not too runny like it would've been, the refried beans made the broth very tasty and thicker. Also instead of ground beef I had leftover roast beef in the fridge so I just sliced that up and it was great. I used a can of RoTel and blended it first since my husband doesn't like chunks of tomatoes, which also made the broth tasty and thicker.

This wasn't bad at all. Good taste but I think it needed more sustenance. Next time I will make this with the entire pound of beef. It felt like a waste to just do half when it had so much room for it. Also, I don't think its a good idea to salt your meat before you add all the other ingredients. I followed the recipe without thinking and the soup ended up too salty. With the broth, the corn and beans, it had more than enough salt so next time I'm going to skip it altogether. What I do love about this is that it has everyday ingredients that I normally have in my pantry and I can add whatever I have on hand. If you don't like spicy try chiles instead, or me, I had a can of plain tomatoes and leftover pimentos so I used those instead.

Awesome! Great on a cold night. I substituted chick peas for the beans since I was out but it's delicious.
