    I doubled the batch and diced up my own tomatoes and added some red peppers and green chilis. Didn't have cilantro on hand, but it turned out delish! I will make it again for sure.

    Made this one time before and making again. Didn’t have crushed tomatoes or rotel so substituted with tomato sauce and added a Chipotle pepper in adobo sauce as family likes spicy. They love it!

    I used bouillon instead of broth, and next time I think I'll add a little extra to make it a bit more flavorful. With cheese and some sour cream (or in my case, plain Greek yogurt), it's delicious.

    This was good but lacked something that I can’t quite put my finger on. I’d make it again, but it needs to be jazzed up somehow. Make sure you have cheese, sour cream, and tortilla strips to put on top!!

    Absolutely beautiful! I added lime leaves, lemongrass and a few more red chillis... (plus cayeene pepper and fresh basil). I also seasoned slighty more with roughly a tablespoon of taco seasoning to boost the mexican flavors. Tip: add a cup of quinoa to the soup the next day while reheating on the stovetop... creates a heartier consistancy with the intensifies flavors!

    Really good I did some changes from black bean to white beans because I don’t like black beans and I add it so cheddar cheese and it came out really good I enjoy it and highly recommended

    I love making soup. This is one of my favorites by far. I made mine with canned pinto beans, canned corn, and left over chicken since that's what I had on hand. It turned out great! I did not make the tortilla crisps either. Used diced onion for a garnish and texture. Just loved it!

    I added 1/2 tsp Penzey's ground red Chipotle powder for extra smoky flavor and omitted jalapenos because my kids don't like them. Turned out great and very easy to make.

    It was great but may be a bit too spicy for some. I followed the recipe to the t and was too spicy for kids and even my wife. They had to add sour cream, I didn’t like it with it. I recommend adding extra chicken broth if too spicy. The tortilla strips are best if fried at home. My family loved them.
