Really, really good stuff!!! I substituted corn for the hominy and more kidney beans for the lima beans. I also added chopped fresh cilantro and sliced avocado on top - extremely tasty! The whole family liked this dinner so I will absolutely be making it again. Read More

Seriously this is my favorite food. Ever. My mom always made it when I was little during the winter. I just made it again and the best thing with this recipe: use your favorites! I put corn in it instead of lima beans and I used jalapeños instead of chili peppers. I also made my own taco seasoning from a recipe on here (I think taco seasoning I) instead of the store package (I'm really big on my food being organic). I didn't add the ranch package either. Making my own seasoning made this even better than I could imagine! I love it with cheese and sour cream. Mmm it's my guilty pleasure. And since there's only 2 of us here this is enough for me to have dinner for a week or so it's so good I don't mind eating it for days on end!! My boyfriend who hates beans even loves it!:) Read More

Add a dollop of sour cream for the kids to tone down the spices. I used Mexican stewed tomatoes butter beans and substituted frozen corn for the hominy. Serve with corn chips (and guacamole). Fresh cilantro is wonderful and really compliments this soup. Read More

I adjusted this recipe to suit our favorite ingredients and to make it a little lower in salt. I did not add the additional salt I used three cans of organic black beans that I rinsed and drained instead of pinto-lima-kidney beans. I made my own taco seasoning mix and ranch dressing mix (sans salt) and instead of water I used a low sodium beef broth. When I got all the ingredients mixed the soup looked a bit thin to me so I threw in two 14 oz. cans tomato sauce and two cans drained and rinsed white corn. This was nice to come home to after a long afternoon and we enjoyed it. I'll make this again with my changes. Read More

This is AMAZING! I used shredded chicken instead of ground beef. (i'm not really a fan of ground beef so i think it made it better than it would have been otherwise) I also found that there wasnt quite enough liquid so i doubled the water amount and therefore put in twice the amound of taco seasoning and ranch dressing mix. I also added a can of corn. It was fabulous! My husband loved it! Read More

This was FANTASTIC!...and healthy! I only used about a 3/4 lb of lean ground beef. I can't imagine using 2 lbs I think it would be way too chunky to be considered soup. I left out the Lima beans and hominey but added a can of corn instead. Topped it with a sprinkle of cheddar light sour cream fresh lime juice avacado and several tortilla chips. I thought the idea of ranch dressing mix was rather strange but the taste of this soup was really impressive. Healthy and rather inexpensive meal! Read More

Quick tasty and super easy! I used 1 lb each of ground beef and ground turkey. Also 2 cans petite-diced garlic tomatoes and no lima beans (added a little extra white hominy to make up for it). I decreased pepper to 1/2 tsp. and added a little extra water to make it soupier. I salted to taste (salty already because of the seasonings-did not need anywhere near a teaspoon). Served with dollop of sour cream cheddar cheese and cilantro. Thank you! Read More
