    This was very easy to make, but I tweaked it a bit. I eliminated the jalapeno and added some cooked carrot shreds (they come pre-shredded for topping salads, etc.). It was very good. A healthy and filling comfort food on a cold New England night. - 2/9/09

    I made this by just dumping everything in a crock pot in the morning (I threw in a can of tomatoes, drained, too), and I had a great one dish meal waiting when I got home. - 2/10/09

    This sounds very good, but what is the serving size?There aren't too many SparkRecipe's that include the serving size. Why? How is anyone watching their weight is suppose to add the calories to their daily allotment? - 2/1/09

    My husband liked a lot, and I thought was pretty good too. However, my toddlers wouldn't touch it - even though I substituted red bell pepper for the jalepeno for them. (Which also made it prettier - ha ha!) - 3/8/09

    I didn't even put in the jalepeno peppers and it was way too spicey for me. I will try it again with less red pepper and some black pepper instead. - 2/10/09

    This was quick and delicious. I will definitely make this recipe again. I used olive oil instead of butter and frozen low fat creamed corn rather than canned. Next time I may also try nonfat milk. - 2/2/09

    Very good I will make this one again. I made it on a rainy afternoon and it was a great lunch. I made a couple of substitutions. I used 1 1/2 T light butter, 5.8 oz chicken and 1/16 t salt. For me this made 7 cups of soup. - 2/2/09
