This is from the Rachael Ray Show. I am making this tonight for a quick, easy dinner! Will post pictures ASAP! Would be great with a green salad for a figure friendly meal-maybe even a twist on the traditional taco salad??

I made this for our PTA's "Soup Day" for our teachers. This was the first to go! I added a can of rinsed black beans and a can of corn for color. I also added more tortilla chips than the recipe called for to thicken it up. I served this with shredded pepper jack cheese, sour cream and tortilla chips. After it was finished cooking, I did put it in the crockpot over night set at warm.....I think this helped thicken it up and give it more of a chili consistency. Delicious!!!!! Besides regular chili, this is the first soup/chili I have ever made from scratch. Very easy!!!!
A great recipe but more like a soup....I'm going to add a can of black beans any maybe some corn . I used some of my homemade tomatillo salsa and some store bought salsa. Great flavors and also planning to try with the extra cheese, and sour cream
Yum, this is so good. Nice and easy to prepare and so flavorful. I used shredded chicken. Thanks for sharing! ZWT8
