"SImply delicious and SO simple to make!! I added a can of mexican diced tomatoes and only put in a small amount of cheese while cooking. For serving, I added a dollop of sour cream, a few tortilla chips and a bit of cheese to the bowls. Loved this, will definitely make again!"

"I made this soup tonight even though the temp. was nearly 100º here in Texas. It was super easy to prepare and my husband declared it a keeper. There are lots of possibilities with this recipe but it was delicious just as it reads. Definitely a five star recipe. I highly recommend this recipe as a Volunteer Field Editor for Taste of Home."

"So easy, fast and delicious! I added fresh chopped tomatoes and skipped the cheese. It's so good you won't miss the extra calories!"

"This was a yummy, easy, quick soup. I omitted the chips and added 1/4 tsp. chili powder and 1/4 tsp. cumin, and sprinkled chopped fresh cilantro immediately before serving. For more color, I added a cup of canned drained diced tomatoes. I skipped the 2 cups of cheese and instead only sprinkled a handful of cheese over each bowl immediately before serving. For us this was more like 3 dinner-sized servings (not 7 servings)."
