I do believe that you should rate the recipe "as-is", but I still would like to give this recipe 5 stars as the changes I made were my preferences and does not change the quality of the original recipe. These "substitutions" were that I used boiling water and chicken bouillon to make the broth (I never buy canned brother anymore, too expensive and takes too much room in the pantry as I use quite a bit). I also substituted my own salsa for the Pace brand. I added a little more cilantro since I LOVE cilantro. And I didn't have the "Mexican-style" corn with the peppers, so I just used regular corn... I don't think that made a huge difference in flavor since those peppers probably don't have much taste coming from a can of corn... more of a texture thing. I tasted the soup and thought it was excellent and flavorful BEFORE I added a can of Rotel HOT Tomatoes with Habanero peppers. I like things very spicy and I also think tortilla soup should have some diced tomatoes in it, so this was an great touch for me. However, the soup was still very good before the Rotel. I look forward to making this recipe again on days I have leftover chicken for a very quick meal (30 mins. with precooked chicken that is already chopped/shredded). I also would like to try this in the crockpot with whole raw chicken breasts thrown in with everything else... and then shred the chicken at the end. Read More

Absolutely Delicious! I added 1 can drained and rinsed black beans to the soup and topped each bowl with shredded cheese and a dollup of sour cream along with store bought tortilla chips. Read More

Very easy & made good leftovers too! I made some small changes: used brown not white rice, more cilantro, a can of diced tomatoes & low sodium broth. Just tried to make healthier & still yummy! Read More

Love it! I made this for supper tonight on this chilly Delaware evening and it was DELICIOUS! I was so proud of it and of myself because I followed it to the letter (except for adding a can of rinsed and drained black beans) and it turned out just perfect. We could smell the cilantro and cumin as the soup was cooking and it made us so anxious for it to be done. I did use a different kind of salsa just because I like it better and it has a bit of a kick to it (not hot, just zesty), but we do like Pace and I'm sure it would have been just as tasty if I'd used that salsa. My only problem There was only enough for one bowl left for leftovers because the four of us ate it all! Next time, I'll double the recipe. Thanks so much for this recipe...I know we'll use it again and again. Read More

I am so in love with this recipe!!! The only thing I changed was adding more rice, cilantro and broth. Wonderful for cold Colorado nights. My mother-in-law even approved and took my copy of the recipe home with her! Thanks! Read More

This was great! My two year old even ate it! I added a can of black beans for some extra nutrients. Added just 1/3 c rice and used my whole carton of broth (4 cups). I added a can of green chiles along with my can of corn because I didn't have the corn w/ peppers. I was also missing the cilantro :( It was still delicious but I'm sure it would've been even better with some extra cilantro! Read More
