This is a really tastey soup. The only thing I did differently was add a can of chicken broth and cooked it longer. We served it with flour tortillas with a little melted cheese rolled up for dunking in the soup. Read More

This was good but I doubt I will make it again because I have so many other bean soup recipes that are better. Read More

If you are a mexican fan this soup is for you. Instead of 4 chicken breasts I used 6. But this was a hit w/ in-laws and other family members. I've been passing this out as fast as I can!!! Read More

This is absolutely delicious. I made a couple tweaks - used hot turkey sausage instead of chicken substituted chicken broth for water and corn for hominy. It was very quick to make. I saved time by cutting the sausage into pieces before cooking in broth and then followed instructions from there. Very tasty and delicious. Read More

This soup is quite tasty. I used mexi-corn because I don't care for hominy and I didn't have any ranch seasoning so I used onion powder garlic powder and other spices that are used in ranch seasoning. My daugter loved this. Read More

I changed this recipe quite a bit to suit what I had on hand. Used pinto and kidney beans halved the recipe used ranch dressing instead of the packet used salsa instead of the canned tomatoes and peppers and skipped the hominy. Also I pureed about half the soup before adding the shedded chicken. It turned out excellent! Served it with grated cheese and tortilla chips. Made a meal. Read More
