If you have too much for one meal, you'll be happy to hear that this flavorful taco soup freezes well. Serve this nicely  seasoned soup with cornbread or muffins for a delicious everyday family meal. If you don't have pinto beans, use black beans or great northern beans. Take a look at the reviews to see what others have done with the recipe.

I followed this recipe exactly as written except I used black beans instead of pinto, and added a 1/2 cup more water to make it more soupy. I also pureed the Rotel and stewed tomatoes a little bit because I thought the tomatoes looked too chunky. The soup is AMAZING! We top it with crunchy tortilla strips, sour cream, shredded cheese, green onions, and diced avocado. I have made this for my sons teacher appreciation luncheon and everyone was asking for the recipe!
