      Thank you Barb111 – I didn’t even realize this was gluten free, and now I can make sure to send it to my sister-in-law, who also needs gluten-free recipes. Great catch!!

    Do the ingredients which don’t say “drained” meant to be added undrained, such as the green chilies? It isn’t clear . . .

      If the ingredient doesn’t say “drained” then the whole can should be dumped in (i.e., the tomatoes, beans and chiles can be dumped in whole). This provides the cooking liquid.

  4. I do not eat beef, would this work well with chicken? Chicken taco soup sounds good to me.
