"This is a go-to recipe for both my mom and me. We love the kick from the spices and jalapeno, yet it's still comforting. This is the best recipe when it's so cold outside and you just can't seem to warm up!"
"So good! I did cheat and use some dried cilantro leaves and frozen rotisserie chicken from my freezer. Had great results. Thanks!"
"Tasty southwest flavors. Came together easily. I had to change the corn for peas because that's what I had and added a yellow pepper. We ate it with sour cream and shredded cheese."
"Fantastic soup! My husband raved about it after eating 2 whole bowls!"
"We really liked this soup and will make it again. My chicken was frozen so I boiled and shredded it rather than cooking in the pan. I also omitted the jalapeno, as I forgot it at the store. Still had great flavor. I think next time I will add more cornstarch to thicken it up a little more. Very yummy!"
