Excellent. The heat level was perfect for us. Just a nice tang! I did add a can of corn and a can of black beans.

Made this for dinner tonight and we loved it. We used the tortilla chips we had in the pantry and added a spoonful of sour cream to each bowl of soup. Although next time I may substitute some picante salsa for either the tomatoes or tomato sauce. It would give it more of a kick.

This was very easy and tasty! I used milk instead of broth (I was wanting something creamy tonight!). Next time I may add some corn. Thanks for sharing!

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.
