This is so easy and tasty. I have made it several times and am planning on using this recipe in a few months for our staff cook off. I cannot always find the frozen vegetables so usually use a can of sweet corn (drained) a can of black beans (drained) and a chopped red bell pepper. I don't bother chopping the chicken breast as it is easy to shred right before you are ready to serve. Read More

This recipe is very quick and easy to make. However, if you follow the recipe - this is VERY bland. There is absolutely no taste at all. Read More

The verdict from my family is: "Make this again!" I made the recipe as written with one small exception. I reduced the chipotle powder to one teaspoon as the one tablespoon would have been too much heat for some of us. The soup is delicious as is but to make it a little more substantial I served it over rice. This is a really good soup. I always spray my crockpot with PAM and as always it made clean up very easy. Thanks "PAM" for recipe! Read More

Everyone loved it but it is plenty hot. The Rotel gets hotter the longer it sits. Great for those that love heat but if you don't want it that hot just use part of the Rotel. Read More

Since I was feeding this soup to my grandkids I left out the chili pepper. I substituted Swanson Mexican Tortilla Flavor infused broth for the broth and a cup of rice. This is the kind of soup you can sub different spices beans or vegetables and it will still taste good. Read More

I used breasts followed another suggestion and used a can of black beans frozen corn and a raw red pepper. I also did not have Rotelle so used diced tomatoes with a can of green chilis. My family really liked it and as any of these recipes you can make it your own by what you have on hand! Read More

Very tasty soup for those that like it hot! It has wonderful flavor but it quite spicy. We didn't add the optional cilantro but did use sour cream in our individual bowls to tame the heat a bit. My store did not have the southwest veggie mix so I used fresh in its place. Read More

Truly spectacular! The seasonings are just right and the flavors meld magnificently. I used chicken breasts instead of thighs and I used canned beans fresh peppers and frozen corn because I couldn't find a southwestern style veggie bag in my grocery freezer. After cooking in the crockpot all day the chicken shredded beautifully and smelled amazing. I ladled a bowl full and let it cool a bit while I sliced avocado and cilantro. I added those and threw a few blue corn ships on top. The perfect combination of flavors and textures. Yes I will be making this again! Read More
