Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great recipe as is, but I always change things up. This is a great recipe as is, but I always change things up. I used 1/2 the onion and added a small chopped zucchini to the saute. A small can of diced green chiles, an increase to 2 tsps cumin, and addition of 1 tsp of my favorite local hot chili powder gave it a spicy, but not too hot, kick. I used a bit more broth (3 cans), and substituted black beans for white, but it will be great with any beans on hand - white, black, pinto, or kidney. We love them all. I'm not big on green onions, so omitted them. Everyone loved this soup, so I will definitely prepare it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the Effort, Delicious! So tasty when you also add these: 1/2 t. Chili Powder, Sm. can mild green chilis, 1 can diced tomatoes, Kidney Beans (rinsed) instead of Cannellini, 1 sm. cubed zucchini sauteed with the onion and 32 ounces Organic Chicken Broth (not sodium reduced or fat-free). Omitted green oinions. I served over tortilla chips and garnished with avocado, Mexican Cheese, sour cream dollop and squirt of lime.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I found the recipe and asked my son, who loves to cook, to make this for us one night. I found the recipe and asked my son, who loves to cook, to make this for us one night. It was delicious and he didn't do anything different except added more chicken. He used things we already had like frozen chicken breasts and salsa. We shredded our own cheese and added sour cream and it was absolutely wonderful. We will make this again and maybe try adding other spices as indicated by other reviewers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This soup was quick to make. This soup was quick to make. My store did not have Taco Bell salsa so I had to buy another brand. I'm not sure if the different salsa made a difference in the taste, but I thought it was bland. I then added way more cumin, smoked paprika, and chili powder. I topped with cheese, avocados, and sour *****. WOW, was it a superstar dish that took no time at all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This reciepe the kids and husband loved. This reciepe the kids and husband loved. I used black beans and canned corn, which darkened the broth, but we felt added excellent flavor. I had enough to serve for 2 adults and three kids plus enough for two lunches for hubby and I the next day. Double the reciepe and serve at a potluck. It is sooo good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This soup was AMAZING! This soup was AMAZING! Honestly, my new favorite soup. It was very easy to make, had most of the ingredients on-hand, and perfect for a snowy, winter day inside. I also added crushed tortilla chips on top, which made it just that much better. Will make again...and soon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was wonderful! This was wonderful! I did add a few things though. I like more tomato, so I added a can of diced seasoned tomatoes. Also I added another can of small red beans along with the white. Also I added a pinch of garlic salt, pepper, oregano, parsley and cayenne for a little kick. I also added a little more chicken. My family loved it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! Excellent!! Tastes great. I used a half of a large onion and it was plenty. I used 1 can of corn in place of the frozen corn. I doubled the amount of green onions and put in a little extra cilantro. This is a great recipe. 1 cup (serving) is filling. Will definately be making this again.
