    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

    Just wanted to add that day 3 after making this soup, I still have some leftover (because I am trying really hard not to eat it all at once) and it is all I can think about. I want to make it every day. - 10/18/10

    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 loved the flavor of the soup, but hated the little fat bubbles floating at the top. I re-made the recipe, but diced and cooked the chicken first. - 1/23/13

    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

    Huge hit! We all loved this and are thinking this will be our Taco-Tuesday replacement. I skipped the cumin (not a fan) and used frozen Hatch chile. I think next time we will skip the corn and add pinto beans since corn really has no nutritional value. Plenty left over for lunches too! - 1/27/15

    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 was soooo good! It made so much that I gave about 1/2 the soup to my mothers...they LOVED it. It made so much, even after giving away half of it, that I had leftovers for a week. Good thing it was so good. Will definitely make this again. - 9/13/12

    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

    I tweaked the recipe a bit: used canned corn, cooked & seasoned black beans in a pouch (old el paso), stewed tomatoes, and added 1/2 packet of taco seasoning. It was tender and had great flavor! Hit with whole fam! - 4/29/13

    Very flavorful and easy to make. I did add grated cheese and sour cream garnish. My only issue is not knowing exactly how much a serving is..a little hard to guesstimate 1/8 of the entire pot. I used low sodium broth but otherwise followed the recipe as is--except my chicken was thawed first. - 10/14/19
