      Love this recipe, but since I don't usually buy whole chicken, I used 5 chicken breasts instead. I didn't use the whole chicken so I used a quart of chicken stock
      I love poblano peppers, I seeded 2 and used them. You can also add 2 small cans of green chilies. When making this I also subtracted some of the water and added 3 15 oz. cans of tomato sauce.I like how it looks and tastes better.
      Finally I crushed a bag of 14 oz tortilla chips which helps to thicken the soup.

      I love the food at the Cheesecake Factory and wanted to try this soup. I made several changes to the recipe- instead of heavy cream, I used fat free half and half, jalapeno Monterey Jack cheese (4 ounces) boiled a huge chicken breast instead of the whole chicken, doubled the Indian red chilli powder (since I didn't have cayenne) and cumin, used garlic powder instead of fresh garlic and added a chicken stock cube to fortify the taste of the chicken broth. I also mixed cornstarch and water together to thicken the soup. My family loved it-very yummy. Thank you for sharing.

      I don't know what the Cheesecake Factory is, but this seemed like a wonderful recipe to make. It does take some time to make, but the results were outstanding! I made it exactly as posted and we all enjoyed this over the weekend. A bit like Mexican French onion soup with chicken! Made for PAC spring 2008 - very much enjoyed thanks Brandess. FT:-)
