Reviews for Hearty Chipotle Chicken Soup

"I had some leftover chipotles in adobo sauce from another recipe, and decided to try this out. It was perfectly spicy. If I make it again, I will leave out the chicken, I don't think it added anything and the beans and corn make it hearty enough."
"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."
"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 husband loved this and I loved that it's reasonably healthy. Perfect amount of spice, and we like hot foods."
"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."
