We used frozen corn and the Food Hero Taco Seasoning recipe. Really tasty and super fast!
Do you drain any of the cans used in this recipe?

I tried a variation of this recipe tonight. I had leftover ground taco meat from last night and 3/4 of a can of refried beans and was looking for a way to repurpose it. I found this recipe and used it as a template. I sauteed onion with cilantro in olive oil, then added the refried beans, a can of diced tomatoes, and a can of black beans. I also added about a cup of beef broth. I didn't have to season it because the taco meat was already pretty heavily seasoned. It turned out great and was a nice way to refresh leftovers and use things up! I added shredded cheese to the top of mine and my hubby had it plain. I've never put refried beans in soup before - I thought it turned out great and added a nice thickness to the soup.
This recipe was a hit at St. Vincent de Paul when sampled! The recipe was followed exactly as written. Yum!
