I adjusted to what I had. Used homemade chicken stock (6 cups) and 2 cans of tomatoes with chiles. Added garlic powder and onion powder to taste along with chili powder to taste. Omitted the bullion cube broccoli (used it the night before) tequila (drank it all while cooking!!!). cayenne and cajun seasoning. Mine got too spicy from just using the canned tomatoes with chiles so I added some sugar to cut the heat. Served with corn tortilla chips to crush avocado scallions cilantro limes hot sauce shredded cabbage radishes shredded cheese and sour cream so each could make their own to taste. The kids loved it with cheese avocado and cabbage us adults added EVERYTHING under the sun! It was great! Read More

We've tried a few "Chicken Tortilla Soups' on AR and this was really good! I didn't have brocoli so I added a can of green beans! I put in about 1/2 cup of salsa for more spice cuz that's the way we like it!.. I don't know that I loved the green beans but since they weren't part of the actual recipe I'll consider it my mistake! A close runner up to my favorite which is "Chicken Enchilada Soup" Thanks!:) Read More

It was excellent!!! I did use some red pepper flakes for added heat and just used regular tortilla chips to save time. For additional greens I served it over a bed of fresh spinach. Read More

This was delicious. We all had seconds. Used the bag tortillas. I accidently bought creamed corn so used that. It added more texture. I also used "Chili Makin's" pinto beans which had the chili sauce and seasoning so only had to adjust seasoning to taste. Read More

This soup was excellent. I used less chicken stock and added 14 oz. can of tomatoes with green chiles then put the tomatoes in the blender. I will absolutely make this soup again. Read More

I've made this recipe twice and with a few changes it is a new family favorite. I used 2 cups of frozen corn rather than canned corn. I left out the beef bouillon cube as it isn't something I keep on hand and I didn't feel anything was missing without it. I replaced the broccoli with chopped carrots. I used two cans of Rotel tomatoes with lime juice and cilantro instead of the stewed tomatoes. I also replaced the 2 tablespoons of Cajun seasoning with 2 tablespoons of taco seasoning and reduced the cayenne pepper to 1/2 tablespoon as it was a bit too spicy the first time I made it. In addition I added 1 tablespoon of ground coriander. Will definitely keep making this! Read More
