"I have been making this soup for about 2 years now - as soon as the weather starts to cool, the kids start asking for it!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 15, 2010

"This is a great and easy recipe. To make it faster after work, I grab a rotisserie chix from the store on the way home. And if I want to turn up the spice, I just up the heat of the salsa. Such great flavor and so easy!!"
