The original came from TOH. I posted though I hadn't tried it and based on the first review I decided to tweak it a bit and come up with my take on the recipe.

This was a yummy soup. It is simple to put together if you have the onions and chicken cut up and the tomatoes and beans drained beforehand. I did think though that for having "fiesta" in the title it wasn't spicy enough, lol. To my serving I added some shakes of Chalula (hot sauce). I liked it much better that way, it was a bit too bland for me otherwise. I think next time I make it I will try to use a can of Rotel instead of the mexican stewed tomoatoes. Then the tomatoes will be cut up smaller plus add a lot more heat then the mexican stewed tomatoes had. This was a nice filling soup. Thanks for posting!
