      You know, there really is a sixth can! I have been making this soup for years from a recipe that is identical to this one--except for the addition of a can of refried beans stirred in. It adds flavor and consistency to the soup. So there's your sixth can. :)

      Great, but I used home made salsa in place of Rotellos, and the soup comes out excellent.

      Definitely 5 stars for ease of making. As for taste WOW! So good. I did make some slight changes. I wanted to use up the last of a rotisserie chicken so I subbed that for the can of chicken. I also didn't have a small can of Rotel so I used a can of fire roasted garlic tomatoes. Last I took many reviewers recommendation and threw in a can of refried beans. YUM-O! After simmering for an hour to incorporate all the flavors it was ready. So simple and tasty. I topped with some crushed tortilla chips and shredded taco mix cheese (cheddar with Monterrey jack). Didn't need to add ANY extra flavors. Mmmm. And it makes a nice size pot too.<br/>Now lets do a calculation of cost. I'll use regular, non-sale prices. You can get many of these items at the 99 cents store.<br/>Can of corn - 99 cents (I bought mine on sale for 49cents)<br/>Can of Chicken Broth - 99 cents (I bought mine on sale for 69cents)<br/>Can of Chicken - $2.50 (the most expensive item on the recipe, can substitute a pound of bone in chicken breast for 98cents when on sale)<br/>Can of Black Beans - 99 cents (mine was 75 cents)<br/>Can of Rotel - $2.25 (I substituted a 79 cent can of fire roasted tomatoes and flavor was great, no spice though so keep in mind.)<br/>OPTIONAL Can of Refried Beans - 99 cents<br/>Total ~$7.75 (or $8.75 with refried beans) for a nice size pot of soup. Add in a bag of tortilla chips (99 cent store) and some cheese (small block of cheese $1.50) and you can feed your family for under $10 a nice filling and dare I say healthy meal. And people say fast food is so much cheaper. Yeah right!
