I don't really understand all the hype about the recipe. It was ok not bad but not fantastic. I added more cumin than the recipe called for plus some garlic powder black pepper and a pinch of salt. Without that it would have been bland.
Tremendously Awesome I made this soup the other day with the only modification being that I used two cans of Rotel( Original ). This soup had an amazing flavor and just enough spice. It will become a family favorite Pros: Incredble Flavor Cons: I have to double the recipe because we ran out so quickly!
DELISH! This was one of the best recipes for tortilla soup I have ever made. I made some small modifications: didn't make the tortilla strips and substituted a small bag of frozen corn in its place. Also used a can of the original rotel (instead of toms w/ chilis....added a little more flare which my family likes!) Can't wait to have left overs tomorrow night! Pros: Slightly spicy great flavors easy dish to prepare!
Staple in our house! I make this even easier by either poaching chicken breast and shredding or using breasts from rotisserie chicken adding 1 1/2 cups of my favorite salsa from my local mexican restaraunt 2 cups chicken broth 1 cup water cumin simmer for 20 min then top off with the lime cheese cilantro FF sour cream and tortilla strips. It's so easy and delicious! Pros: Easy satisfying healthy
Yummy and spicy I made this for dinner last night and absolutely loved it. Then I read back over the recipe and realized I forgot to add the lime juice. Shoot! Thankfully I have leftovers so I'm planning to add that for supper tonight. This is a very spicy dish and unfortunately for me the rest of my family doesn't like spice. So I have to save this recipe to make when they're out doing other things. It's soooo good though! Pros: Easy
delicious! I made a double batch of this which is risky with a first try recipe but I'm so glad I did! It was quick & easy and SO good. The only thing I did differently was to brown the chicken first then add the oil and cook onions and peppers (add a little salt) & scrap up browned bits as the liquid is released. I think browning the meat adds an extra level of flavor so I always do it. The lime juice made this dish so don't skip it. This was fantastic and will definitely become a staple in our house! Pros: easy quick tasty
This is a very good low fat version of Tortilla soup. I doubled the recipe used 2lbs boneless/skinless chicken thighs and added a can of white beans. When serving I added a small amount of chopped fresh avocado. This was a big hit with my son and husband. Thanks! Deedle Peterborough NH
My girlfriends and I use to make this exact receipe a long time ago. I had lost it the original and coundn't remember all the ingredients. I am so glad to find it here. After eating this you won't ever have it at a restaurant again! Thanks. Peggy Lewis Bradenton FL
Very Very good. I used some pre-cooked cuban-spiced chicken thighs from the deli (and omitted the cumin) and added frozen corn. I want to eat this every day! Next time I'm going to reduce the meat to half a pound and add some beans (they're good for your heart). BettyR Seattle WA
Wow I just made this for lunch and it was GREAT! I used boneless chicken breast in place of the chicken thighs as I am not a fan of chicken thighs. But my husband LOVED it. I went to the extra effort to make the tortill strips and it made a difference! This is a new staple at our house! Marsha Brooklyn NY
This recipe is awesome and easy! I did change a couple things though. I also used white meat - tenders to be exact and I used canned Fire Roasted tomatoes instead of the ones with green chilis. I used only one can of chicken broth 1 large onion (not med.) 1 poblano (from my garden) 1 can undrained black beans and used white cheddar. Soooo gooood!
I absolutely loved this recipe. Made it for a group if friends and everyone went crazy for it. I added black beans used only 2 peppers and a little more lime juice. I'll definetly make it again. Caryn L Philadelphia
Wonderful flavor! We loved this soup! It was so quick and easy to make. I added a half bag of frozen southwestern blend veggies when I added the broth etc. I also tossed in a couple of quarters of fresh lime before serving I will definitely be serving this again. Pros: Easy
