Awesome authentic flavor. I didn't have monterey jack but had some gouda cheese. The gouda went well with the soup.

My family loves it when I make this soup. Last time I made it I used shrimp instead of chicken and fresh jalapenos instead of chipotles. It was delicious. It's also great with fresh avocado added when serving.

This soup has a really nice flavor. I served it for dinner last night along with Mesa Grill Bread #37758. They complimented each other nicely. I needed to add more salt to this than I usually add to food, and I skipped the sour cream and lime slice garnish. Otherwise, recipe was made as directed, and I don't believe I would change anything in the future.
