12-28-15 ~ FANTASTIC! This is one of the BEST recipes that I have made in 2015. I made a double batch, but only had one can of green chilies so I diced up a jalapeño to make up the difference. T...

Used smoked turkey in this today.

One word: DELICIOUS!!! My husband who isn't a soup lover reluctantly took a bite and never came up for air until the bowl was empty...and then went back for seconds!! I made it to recipe exc...

Really great soup! I made a few minor changes- I replaced the heavy cream with evaporated milk because I like my arteries, I added some extra chicken and some corn as well. Delicious!

This was good, quick, kids liked dipping taquitos in it. Quite rich though- wonder what evaporated milk would do? Did use low fat cream cheese with no problem

Loved this recipe! I like things spicier, so I added more cayenne pepper, cumin, & garlic.

Excellent! I used rotel instead of Chillies and tomatoes. Delicious!

This reminds me of a crockpot recipe I have but this is better. I didn't have roasted tomatoes so I used fresh medium picante and adjusted my seasonings. I'll be making this again.

Loooooove this soup. So good. Big hit with all the family.
