Very delicious soup! From other reviews I added 3 beef cubes more hamburger and some other things in my cupboard to this basic recipe: a can of diced tomatoes a can of black beans instead of pork and beans package of frozen corn. AND salt and pepper--too bland before adding that. After browning hamburger (1.5 lbs) with celery and onions I put it all in the crock pot and let it simmer on high for about 5 hours. During taste tests throughout the day I didn't like it and thought it was too "taco-tasting" because of the taco seasoning packet but when it cooks long enough and blends all together it is awesome. We've had 3 days of leftovers with it and I can't wait to get hungry again so I can have some more! Read More

This recipe is terrible. It tastes like a what it is: a can of Pork and Beans with a bunch of stuff thrown in with it. I tried to doctor it to make it edible, but ended up throwing it all away. Read More

This stew proved hearty enough to fill hungry family members. It tasted great! I used 2 packages of Taco seasoning and used peas and corn instead of beans - it tasted great! I also added a few more potatos to make it thicker. Read More

I gave this a 5 atr rating because this recipe pleased both my husband and my picky daughter! Which is almost impossible! I did make a few changes but basically stuck to the recipe. I used canned diced tomatoes instead of tomato soup canned potatoes and carrots (for faster easier cooking) beef broth in place of some of the water added garlic powder for more flavor and only a 1/2 a pack of taco seasoning. It turned out great! I don't even like most of the ingrediants and I loved it as well! Thanks for this one. Read More

Thanks Terri This is a wonderful recipe. Great for someone who is sick with a cold or just needs something warm and filling. I added more onions carrots potatoes then called for and left out the celery. We loved it and will make it again and again. Have to buy more Taco mix to have on hand so can make it anytime! Read More

I served to my family of picky eaters. They all went for seconds! I added two pounds of hamburger and it was the right amount to make this a stew. Cornbread made a good accompiant for it. Thanks for your great recipe! Read More

This was a great and easy recipe. I like thicker soup so I used another can of baked beans added some frozen mixed veggies and macaroni. Served with cornbread this is a new favorite! It has that flavor reminiscent of grandma's cooking. Read More

This turned out delicious!! I made it on a whim because I had some carrots and potatoes I needed to use. I used a can of petite diced tomatoes in place of the tomato soup and also added a can of corn and a can of black beans drained instead of the pork and beans. It was so fast and easy to throw together. I seasoned the hamburger with a little garlic powder and some worcestershire sauce. Then I just threw everything in the pot and let it simmer. It was ready in under an hour and tasted like I had taken all day to make it. It would also be a great slow-cooker recipe. Everyone in my family enjoyed it. My six very old devoured a bowl and my husband went back for seconds and said it was a definite keeper. Next time I might add another lb of hamburger to stretch it a little further. Read More
