This is a no-fail soup. Because my husband likes tasty, but not too spicy, I omit the chili powder. There's enough chili flavor in the diced tomatoes with chili.

Fantastic. My family requests this a lot. Love the vegetables. It's hard to get them to eat anything with this amount and variety of vegetables. Taste combination keeps it from being bland. Serve it with cheese cornbread and fresh cilantro.

In one word, boring. I doubled the cumin and chili powder and this still had almost no flavor. I used low sodium beef broth instead of the water and beef bouillon. I used peas instead of green beans (that's what I had in the house). I simmered it on very low heat for a couple of hours, and it smelled SO good! I was so excited to try it, and then very disappointed when I did. I don't know what could have given this more flavor. I know I won't be making it again.
