This is an easy, hearty, spicy soup. I have found that it is a favorite even with picky people! The recipe is always requested. Serve with warm buttered tortillas, cheese, and sour cream.

I thought it was good nothing special but it tasted okay. My kids wouldn't eat more than a couple bites though. It is really easy but I probably won't make it again. It's kind of bland. Not what I expected. Read More

Very yummy, but not spicy. I was hoping to recreate Central Market's Green Chili Chicken soup, but this was creamier. I would definitely add something to spice this up. Read More

MMmmm... this was really tasty. However my husband and I had this as a meal and it was barely enough. I would double it next time and use twice as much chicken - just a little skimpy. Read More

Good recipe. I used grilled chicken breasts instead of canned and some diced tomato as well. It worked okay with regular milk instead of half-n-half. I would recommend it. Nice served with the buttered tortillas. Read More

Delicious soup - reminds me of Chicken enchiladas. Both of my teenagers loved it. I doubled the recipe thinking it didn't seem like much but it is so rich I think the proportions are probably about right for each serving. We love spicy so I added some diced jalepenos. Read More

An excellent easy and very flavorful soup. My husband and I love it and I've shared the recipe with friends and coworkers. I usually double the recipe and sometimes change up the seasoning to include chipotle. This also freezes very well. Read More

I used a pound of chicken breast which I cubed and sauteed with the onion. I also used about 1 3/4 cup of half & half. I put 2 cans of green chiles into my chopper to make them a bit finer then I added another can of chiles which I didn't chop. I also added a small bag of potatoes to the soup. It was so good! My husband and I really loved the creamy texture. I will double the recipe next time however because between me my husband and our 3 older daughters we ate every drop of this! Read More
