Personal Notes:
Tried and true Glass Family staple, this is great for a quick meal to feed a few or a lot in a short amount of time with pretty common ingredients you probably already have on hand.

If desired, sprinkle each serving with any combinations of shredded cheese, broken up tortilla chips, diced green onion, chopped cilantro or dollop of sour cream.

I prefer soupy soups and add more water. I add more Picante© sauce than asks for (one full small jar). And I often use 1 can of Rotel tomatoes. I double the recipe when feeding a crowd or add extra corn and beans. I mix and/or vary the beans. One time I’ll use black beans and pinto, and the next I may use another kind.
