    The family literately devoured it!
    I tweaked the recipe a little.
    I used 1 can of rotel instead of 2.
    I used 1 can of chopped tomatoes.
    I used 1 small can of green chilies.
    I boiled the raw chicken in 1 tsp of cumin,1 tsp of lemon and pepper, and 1 tsp of olive oil for about 40 minutes on a low

    I've made this for 30 years! It's great. I use gluten free bouillon cubes, fresh mushrooms, 1/2 and 1/2 to make the "creamed soups" and add minced garlic, crushed cumin, and a bit of chili powder. You can use low fat cheeses, etc. to lower the calorie count like Cheddar, Jack, Asiago, etc. Enjoy! - 5/1/08

  • This sounds so delicious. I wonder if they used the low-fat, low-sodium soups, and low-fat cheeses. I will be using them when I make this tonight. - 5/1/08
