    This was so easy and so good! I switched it up and used 1/2 lb of ground turkey + can of black beans to stretch it and replaced stewed tomatoes with fire-roasted tomatoes (plus a little water). Will definitely make again!

  • Absolutely delicious! My 9 year old daughter and I made this together and it was absolutely delicious. I did a little less of the cayenne pepper and chili powder so it wouldn’t be too spicy for her. My husband and I enjoyed the soup, and for my 9 year old I served it with taco shells- so she ate 3 tacos because she loved it so much. Great, quick meal that we’ll certainly make again

  • Love! love! Love! I just made this tonight and it’s fabulous. I couldn’t find stewed tomatoes so I used a can of crushed tomatoes and ground turkey instead of beef and it is so hearty – great meal for a winter night!
