Comments

This recipe was a hit at St. Vincent de Paul when sampled! The recipe was followed exactly as written. Yum! 

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. 

Do you drain any of the cans used in this recipe?

Thanks so much for your question! This recipe has now been edited to be more clear. We hope you are able to give it a try and to leave a comment for everyone.

We used frozen corn and the Food Hero Taco Seasoning recipe. Really tasty and super fast!
