This soup was very easy to make and tasted very good. I cooked my chicken with faijta seasoning and I also added a bay leaf. I think next time I make this, I may try adding frozen corn and maybe either pinto beans or black beans. Very tasty.

Excellent. Easy. Healthy. What more can I ask for? The directions were perfect and the resulting soup was so tasty. I served it with avocado and the healthy corn tortilla strips. The only change I made was to use all chicken broth instead of a combination of beef and chicken broths. Thank you for posting this winner!

This soup was good! I cooked my chicken in little pieces with some Mexi spice...which was good. But, I didn't really enjoy the tortillas. I think we could try tortilla chips maybe. My veggies were a bit crunchy too, so perhaps I'll saute those with the onions. Also, I think I like the cheese cubed instead of grated... I liked this soup, we weren't disappointed. But I'm going to keep searching for the recipe that really reminds me of Mexico. Thanks for sharing, the flavor was great!!
