This soup is great! Easy to make too. I used 1/4 of a large brick of cheddar instead of the velveeta. Awesome!!

This was an okay recipe, not outstanding or worth repeating.

Tastes great and easy to make! Because I don't like raw onions I sautéed the onions with the meat and added a little garlic and other spices. Should not have added salt though, as the other ingredients already contained enough salt.

Excellent soup, easy to follow recipe. I gave four stars because I had to double the Velveeta to get the texture I wanted, but I think that is a personal taste thing. I love the whole kernel corn, it adds texture, and a little sweetness. I am vegetarian, so used reconstituted Textured Vegetable Protein (TVP) {2 cups dry} for the ground beef. Otherwise I followed the recipe to a T. Yummy stuff!

This is a 5-star recipe if you add a packet of enchilada sauce mix or taco seasoning. Next time I'll chop the tomatoes so they're similar in size to the beans and corn. Delicious!

so good!!!!!!!

Excellent recipe! I used only 2/3 of the cheese due to other reviews that said it was more like a dip than a soup and cooked the onions with my hamburger and added some garlic with the meet as well. Didn't have ranch beans so I added a can of black eyed peas and they soaked up the flavors wonderfully. Rave reviews by EVERYONE!!!! Thanks for the recipe.
