This soup is as good as (if not better than) any kind I've had in a restaurant. I get so many complements...I know you will, too!

"We loved the taste of this soup.I changed a few things cause I didn't have a few of the ingredients. (Green Chilies, Diced tomatoes use Rotel instead). I use fresh chicken breast but cooked them with the onion and jalapeno. My family loved it will cook it again"

"Our new favorite soup! I use leftover chicken or chopped up cooked chicken breasts instead of canned and add a can of salt free drained black beans and corn. Very flavorful!"
