Made this tonight for the hubby and i.  We did not have the beef crumbles so i used rice as a filler.  It turned out very good.  Also i  added some spice to it, for we both love hot food.  Nice and quick too!


This recipe was very flavorful; both thick and satisfying. My whole family ate it up like they've Noverre Bern put to trough! I used low sodium V8 and a homemade taco seasoning blend, so it was nice to know what went into it. Also, I had no chips but a half a package tortillas, so I cut them into triangles,salted them slightly with sea salt, and crisped them under the broiler befor adding them to the soup. Yum. Yum. And yum.  :)>>>


I made this with out the burger crumbles. I just threw everything in a pot, added a cup of orzo pasta and simmered for about 15 minutes. It made it thicker more like a stew and it was awesome!

Very quick, easy and delicious!
Great recipe!


I made this last night and it was wonderful and super easy!  My husband raised his eyebrows in surprised when I told him it was vegan!  We'll have the leftovers tonight!


This was very easy to prepare and was a huge hit!  I didn't use MorningStar Farms... Instead I used another brand's tack style crumbles (I thought it was just taco seasoning when I bought it... oh well...).

Anyway, my roommates and their families and friends ate it.  And, all who ate it sang praises!  Not bad, since they're all omnivores.

To mine, I added a dollop (or two) of vegan sour cream!  Yum!!!
