Excellent! Sopa(seca) means dry soup and is really a mild flavored casserole used as a side with other spicy dishes. I made 1/2 the recipe using flour tortillas and "Mexican" blend cheese. We loved the nicely layered flavors of the chicken, onion, cheese and chili peppers. I served the sopa with Jalapeno Cole Slaw #60158. Thanks Elissa, I will use this easy to make side - often!

Thanks for the recipe. This was ok. Please make sure you like the taste of condensed soup before making this. The taste of the cream of chicken soup is overwhelming and artificial. I used jalape

This served us well for a quick, easy-to-please dinner. I cut the ingredients in half thinking it would be too much, but the kids were looking for more after the dish was empty. I used low-carb, whole wheat tortillas and could see adding black beans or corn to this. Thanks for sharing!
