"Yum, delicious! I omitted the green onions and used only 1/2 onion. I used regular items rather than reduced sodium, added a little chili powder for a bit of spice, and instead of broth, I used chicken base and water. Next time, I might add some corn and black beans to make it chunkier."

"This is one of my family's favorite recipes. This is one of the most simple recipes and so good. I buy a pre-cooked rotisserie chicken from the grogery store and take meat off the bone in order to save time. We add lots of avocado, cheese and tortilla strips."

"Not sure how you could not think this is spicy. I should have tasted it as I went along I guess. Three people eating it and we all could not finish it."

"I was a little skeptical at first, but this is delicious! Not spicy at all, which is good for me. I put the cooked chicken in while it simmered though, and the results were great."
