This is my new favorite comfort food! I've always wanted to make this kind of soup but was always a bit daunted by other recipes. This one is yummy and has the perfect amount of heat so it's not overwhelming. The only things I changed was I only had a can of black beans instead of kidney beans and I added 1 1/2 cups of frozen corn at the end. I had whole wheat tortillas and used those to make the strips. Soooo good!!
The recipe is good, but I think more chili powder could be added to the recipe in order to add more spice (we like a lot of spice in our family). The recipe as is was slightly bland. It also wouldn't hurt to season the chicken prior to broiling it so that there's that extra kick in the soup.
Added corn and black beans.
We enjoyed this recipe very much. I made a few changes to give it a bit more flavor. I doubled the amount of garlic and cumin, and added another teaspoon of chili powder. I used 2 cans of black beans instead of the kidney beans, and I also added 1 can of undrained Mexicorn and a couple of dashes of hot sauce. We like it a bit on the spicier side, but it wasn't too hot. It sounds like I made a lot of changes, but the basic recipe is a good one, easily adapted to your taste.
Lots of flavor, I cooked the chicken right in with the garlic and onion, and took out to shred.
I wasn't very impressed with this recipe. I've tasted other recipes similar to this that I liked better.
I add corn instead of the beans and always add some chipotle tabasco. Delicious every time!
My husband and I LOVE this soup! I've made it several times. It's very spicy with the chiles, so I prefer to leave them out. It's so healthy and it really fills you up. I will continue to make it again and again. Delicious!!!
