I love this recipe. But I made a few modifactions; instead of cayenne I highly recommend either chipotle chili powder or a few chipotles in adobo to taste; depending on the brand really. I also add 1/4 c diced bell pepper or a 4oz can green chilis 1/2 t garlic powder AND a bit of fresh or jarred garlic; again to taste. And definetley use beef or even chicken broth boullion cubes.Disregard the salt requested in this recipe the taste is much better with the salt from boullion. Read More

This wasn't bad. I was out of corn and I didn't have anything else I could throw in. I like the flavor of the soup though. I had to use shredded cheddar cheese and ketchup in place of the paste but otherwise made as is. You'll have to crank the heat up to a low boil in order to properly melt the cheese. Then let it simmer for 5 - 10 minutes. Read More

I made this for dinner tonight. It was good. Next time tho I will decrease the amount of chili powder because the soup was too spicy for my children. Read More

This really was a hearty soup. If you're feeding a large family like mine you would need to double it. I served it with cornbread and used cheddar cheese instead. Wouldn't be opposed to using parmesean cheese in place of it. Read More

Easy enough so that my young daughter could help me make it. She's pretty picky when it comes to soups but she really likes it! I used just a pinch of sea salt and instead of cayenne pepper we used red pepper. Read More

My family loved it! Never made nor heard of hot dog soup but it came out fantastic! The only negative response i got about it was how spicy it was. Otherwise a real hit. Read More

didn't care for this at all. The recipe tasted too acidic salty and overly seasoning of spices and the cheese didn't bind well with the whole recipe. Won't make again. Sorry. Read More
