This recipe has no cream in it, but when blended, it takes on a creamy taste! The blending step is optional, but I believe it gives a better presentation!

Very tasty almost too thick to be called soup but flavor is great. I used Old Elpaso Hot Taco mix and the rest as written. No extra salt or pepper. Made 6 cups. Thank you for posting. Read More

My family loved the soup. I used a 7 oz. chicken breast instead of 4 oz. as that is what I had. I added an additional amount of chicken broth (two cans of broth). Next time I'll add more broth as it was not soupy enough but the family didn't mind. Read More

Very yummy and nutritious. I would recommend trying it. I made nachos with it as well. Try sour cream and guacamole on the side. Read More

This dish was delicious and I will definitely make it again. The only change I made was that I had some cooked brown rice on hand and I added it to the second pressure cooking in the hot pot. Served with South of the Border Tortilla chips. Yum! Yum! Read More

I followed the directions exactly and it was really good but like others pointed out it could have used some more broth. The drawback to me was having to let off the steam and then build it back up too many times. Next time I think I will boil the chicken in broth on the stove top and go from there. Read More

Love it! What I did different is after shredding the chicken I put all other ingredients in the pot, put the lid back on and cooked for an additional 15 minutes on low in my one pot. I then ladled myself a bowl (taste before I serve to my family!), sliced up some avocado, warmed up some tortilla chips, put a few dashed of lime juice in my bowl, put in the chips, cheese and ate it!! Sooo good!! Read More
