    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

    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

    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

    Very good and spicy. I was tempted to add two jalapenos but restrained myself... glad I did. My husband enjoyed it too. At first he thought I opened a can, but then realized that it had way more good stuff than the canned stuff. It was also easy and fast to make. A keeper. - 8/7/07

  • Awesome way to spice up some leftover chicken! My chicken had been seasoned with salt-free spices for the grill so that give it some extra spice also. I put a in extra oinion and celery also for more flavor. Left out the spicy stuff for me (husb. added spice to his bowl) will definitely make again! - 5/14/09
