Awesome quick and easy soup. Modifications I made were the following: Used black beans instead of kidney beans (wife does not care for kidney beans) Added a can of diced tomatoes and chilis Seasoned with garlic white pepper and black pepper. Topped with Mexican shredded cheese and fried tortilla strips. SIMPLY AWESOME!!! Leftovers I used basic tortilla chips with the shreeded cheese and it was just as good (if not better after letting the flavors meld overnight). Read More

"Very healthy"? Sorry -- no way. Not with almost 2000g of salt in one serving (enough for one day). Try using fewer canned ingredients and more fresh ones. Read More

This turned out excellent but only after I made a few changes. I added extra cumin some garlic salt a can of Rotel Mexican tomatoes with cilantro peppers lime and diced tomatoes and also added a small package of Velveeta cheese. Instead of plain cubed chicken breast meat I bought a rotisserie chicken at Sam's and shredded that up. I LOVE Mexican and TexMex food and with a little bit of shredded Monterey Jack on top and some crumbled tortilla chips this made the perfect-tasting Mexican soup. I will definitely make this slightly varied version again! Read More

Excellent and easy soup!! I added 3 1/2 cups of broth and a little more corn and it was a nice thick and colorful soup. Sprinkled cheese over each bowl and this dinner was a HUGE hit!! Will be making this again!! Thank you Bette!! Read More

This was a good start to a really great soup. I added my usual garlic and onion powders chili powder black beans pepperoncini for some spice and instead of the stewed tomatoes I used a large jar of salsa. My leftover pork tenderloin from Sunday's dinner worked well with this. Family came back for seconds and I'm happy to say there's just enough left for lunch today. Thank you! Read More

VERY GOOD! The first time I followed the recipe exactly and it was delicious. The second time we were out of stewed tomatoes so I just added rotel and it was just as good. We always top it with sour cream and cheddar cheese and eat with scoops tortilla chips. This recipe is definitely going into my book of regulars! Read More

Delicious Soup! I'm basing my rating on the 2 changes I made...I didn't add the green pepper because I didn't have any and I added a can of black beans. It was delcious and simple to make! Topped each serving with sour cream and some cheddar cheese. I served it with corn bread muffins..yummy dinner! Thanks for a great recipe!! Read More

My family really enjoyed this recipe. I served this with corn muffins and it was a very hearty meal. This is a great weeknight recipe as it is very easy to throw together and the ingredients are items usually found in your pantry. I will definitely make this soup again. Read More

Thank you! My husband came home from work with a cold and I needed a soup quickly! I followed your recipe except that I didn't have peppers or chiles on hand. I used canned chicken kidney and garbanzo beans and 1/2 cup of salsa. I had shredded mozzerella so I put it on top with some sliced avocado and tortilla chips on the side. It was perfect! My husband loved it and so did I! Read More
