Excellent! I used a lemon pepper rotisserie chicken from the store that I just pulled the meat off of. I cooked onion with garlic, salt, pepper, and cumin prior to adding the chicken. I also added cilantro, black beans, and a can of green chilis to the soup. I also added a thing of lime juice. My husband is Mexican, and his only complaint about this dish was "not enough lime juice" (he likes his lime!!). Excellent with sour cream, avacado, and cheese on top.
