    I made mine without potatoes but added a can of diced tomatoes with green chilis. I also eleiminated the jalapenos and added green peppers. I really enjoyed this and it is quite filling. Will make it again! - 3/12/08

    This was better than I thought it would be! It made the house smell great and came out like a spicy southwest potato chowder. Light and still filling. Very good! - 6/19/08

    This was very good. I loved a store brand pre made soup packet. But I've been trying to cut out processed foods, and this is a great alternative. Even better, actually. Super easy and delicious! I added a whole green pepper too. - 2/9/13

  • I used what I had on hand; 3 chicken breasts, 1/2butternut squash in place of the potato. Added some leftover roasted veggies, doubled the garlic and beans and added a can of fire roasted diced tomatoes! Super fantastic and we got 10 one cup servings with lower cals!Thanks for the great base recipe! - 9/26/11
