If you haven't tried the recipe, then you really shouldn't judge. You don't know every person's limitations. What's easy for you may not be easy for another. Also, as with any recipe, you can adjust the seasonings to suit your taste. If you object to canned food, you can use the following substitutions: 1 can corn = ~2 cups fresh or frozen corn 1 can black beans = ~2 cups cooked black beans 2 cans broth = 3.5 cups broth 1 can cubed chicken = 1 boneless chicken breast, diced Unless you live in a dry-hot climate, there is really no fresh substitute for Rotel. Canned tomatoes are generally far superior to fresh tomatoes when tomatoes are out of season. For most of the world, tomato season only lasts for a short period during the year.

I would like to say that I loved the video. I have a son that is disabled and struggles to care for himself. Cans are great and so is the video when you have trouble eating. Thank you

I can't believe the nasty comments. Seems we should be able to disagree in a nice way.

Another good recipe for taco soup: 1 lb. ground beef, fried and drained then add: 1 pkg. Ranch original dressing, dry 1 pkg. Taco Seasoning 2 cans black beans 2 cans pinto beans 2 cans of diced tomatoes with zesty mild green chilies or rotel 1 can of creamed corn. Open cans and packages, do not drain, add to ground beef and simmer for 20 minutes or more.

I've had a similar recipe for a while. Mine uses 1 pound of ground beef, but I've also used simmered shredded chicken, or good ground turkey. Mine also calls for a packet of taco seasoning and a packet of dry RANCH MIX! It sounds odd, but it works. You can't really taste it, but you'll definitely miss it. It's very good and easy. If you want to make all the veg from fresh, go right ahead... but the cans are fine by me!

A few posters are putting negative comments about using cans. I am a WholeFoods junkie, so I could not agree with you more. But listen, not everyone can do non-canned foods every night for dinner. Budgets force many families to not only have a lot of canned foods in their dinner menus, but also time constraints. I try to avoid judging other when it comes to this kind of thing. Let's be a little kinder to people posting the recipes.

I love the idea of this recipe with some spice, and lots of them, using rotisserie chicken, or leftover roasted chicken, and yummy goodies to top it with. Never take a recipe as is, if you like the ingredients, play with it and make it your own. Winner, winner easy dinner. :)

This looks bland and tasteless. It could easily be fixed up with pre-chopped garlic, and even dried herbs such as cumin, cilantro and red pepper. It could be thickened by at least smashing some of the black beans into a paste. Shredded cheese should not be an option, and sour cream would add substantial taste.

We make this all the time and add a packet of dried Ranch dressing mix and a half packet of taco seasoning. Garnish with sour cream and shredded cheese.
