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

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. Read More

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! Read More

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! Read More

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. Read More

Very easy to make and my husband loved it. I recommend not leaving the soup on warm on the eye because it burned the rest of the batch. That was my fault. Will make again. Read More

This is my family's favorite soup recipe. My kids say "All right!!!" when they know I am fixing Santa Fe Soup. My husband brought some men from work home for lunch to eat this soup and it was a total "thumbs up" meal. It is so easy to fix. I keep all the ingredients on hand and we even eat it during the summer. It also makes a great dip with some white corn tortilla chips. Thanks! Read More
