This crowd pleaser is very versatile. Use any combination of beans you like, even corn. It can be cooked on the stove. Serve with cheese and tortilla chips or in bread bowls.

great but did modify it by reducing amount of beans. Used zesty pinto and seasoned black and northern white beans, and reg pinto beans. Added diced tomatoes and can of tomato sauce substituted about 2TB chili seasoning mix instead of taco seasoning mix in recepie Read More

We both liked this! We added home canned bananna peppers. We could not find ranch beans and it was fine. In our bowls we topped the soup with sharp cheddar cheese and sour cream and had nachos on the side. Yum! Read More

We thought this was great! I made it as is first then after tasting it added the other spices suggested by others and this will easily be a go to recipe in a pinch. It was quick and easy to make and I didn't even have to defrost the chicken. Next time I will top with lime and cilantro. Read More

Thankyou, Janelleh for this easy recipe. I was scrambling to find a recipe for this week's Food Bank cooking session. We try to make 50 every week. So, here's my crowd-worthy version. 5 lbs hamburg, 1 bag white onion, 1 package seeded jalapenos, minced, 6 28oz cans diced or crushed tomatoes, 5 packages low-sodium taco mix, 15 19oz cans of assorted beans (disclaimer--I accidentally drained and rinsed them). I added about 5 cans of water, but next time, I'll use chicken stock and not drain the beans. It tasted great, and I would have added sour cream as a garnish. Read More
