    I made this before I left for work this morning. Came home to a wonderful smelling house. A couple adjustments. 1)Taco seasoning and tomato paste instead of enchilada sauce and cumin. 2) Dice tomatoes instead of mashing whole. I topped my bowl with a few dollops fat free Greek yogurt. - 5/20/11

    This is one of our new favorites! Trying out new recipes and my husband and I both LOVE this one. I have even passed it along to our friends. I used low sodium chicken broth and 7oz can of green chilis--that is all I did differently. GREAT!!! - 1/5/10

    I made a couple of small changes. Instead of canned enchilada sauce, I used tomato sauce with taco seasoning. Also threw about half a cup of cornmeal that thickened up the soup a lot and instead of tomatoes, put in small jar of salsa. Topped with cheese, light sour cream and oven toasted tortilla. - 10/14/12

    I didn't have chicken available, so I used half a pound of lean ground beef. Cooked in a skillet first, then just added it to the mixture. That was the only substitution I made, and this recipe is AWESOME. I will be making again!! Thank you so much! - 12/8/11

    I used salsa for seasoning, and low-sodium broth and tomatoes. Really delicious and I was happy to find a simple recipe that fits in w/a healthy low carb/high protein style of nutrition. I garnished it w/greek yogurt. Highly recommended - 5/24/11

    This one is a keeper! I am pretty wimpy when it comes to spicy food, so I kept out the chiles and this soup is still very tasty! My husband adds chile powder to spice his soup. Very easy to make! I use the Tyson roasted chicken chunks to make this even easier. - 1/9/11

    Very yummy. I halved all the ingredients since I'm the only one eating it. After tasting, I added half a packet of taco seasoning to up the flavor and spice. Also I cooked this on a low simmer on the stove for about 5 hours since I don't have a slow cooker. - 11/10/09

    This was delicious! I ate mine plain but told my husband and son that they could add sour cream, cheese or doritos to it but they said it was so good they didn't need anything extra. Serving size is about 1 1/2 cups and very filling. - 11/7/12

    This recipe could be better with bone in chicken to better flavor. Then use a jalepeno for spicy and leave out the enchilada sauce. I used dark meet and shredded the chicken at end of cooking, removing bones. - 5/16/13

  • As is, the recipe is only 3 stars. I had to add 2 Tbsp cornstarch to thicken it near the end, as it was far too watery. It was bland even after I added chicken fajita seasoning. We topped it with diced avocado, crushed tortilla chips, queso fresco, and fresh squeezed lime, which made the meal! - 1/22/14

I make my own tortilla strips by cutting a flour tortilla into thin strips & frying in a bit of oil until golden (only takes a moment) & is 100x's better than chips & top with sour cream, cilantro & avocado-I prefer no cheese. - 1/22/12

  • delicious & healthy & you can modify it. For instance add it some chopped green or red peppers or celery if you want a little more veggies. Or sub a jar of prepared picante sauce (or your own) for the enchilada sauce & chiles. Use what you have, you almost can't go wrong ...it will be delish! - 12/28/11
