MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 11, 2014

"This was ok. I know I shouldn't have expected much because of all of the canned ingredients but it just tasted like doctored canned soup."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 14, 2014

"I made this recipe on Sunday, October 12, 2014. Excellent! I doubled the recipe, except the pinto beans, kept the same amount and added 2 cans of black beans. I bought a rotisserie chicken, took the skin off, de-boned and cut up in chunks. We put a dab of sour cream in the first bowl, but we didn't really care for it. Today is Tuesday and we are eating the last of it. It got better each day! Made cornbread to go along with it.. Thanks for sharing!"

MY REVIEW

"My husband loved this and I loved that it's reasonably healthy. Perfect amount of spice, and we like hot foods."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 29, 2014

"This was a tasty soup. I would add a little bit more of the adobo sauce; however, my husband did not think that this was necessary. It is also quite filling. Very good every day recipe."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 4, 2014

"My husband and I absolutely love this recipe. It is spicy, but that's just the way we like it. I didn't add quite as much corn, but other than that I made it just as it said. It has become a regular staple on winter nights in our home!"
