Not sure that the sodium content can even be close to being right, a can of cream of mushroom soup has 37% of your daily requirement for 4 servings and with 10 cans of high sodium stuff for 15 servings you are going to get at least a days worth in every serving. Heart attack in a bowl. Can't imagine the sodium content in this....think I will pass although I am sure that it is delish.

I've made this a ZILLION times...we LOVE it and I actually think it tastes almost exactly like Max and Erma's if not better! It's so good, my best friend actually invites herself over for dinner whenever she knows we are making it :) Thanks for the delicious recipe!

Really tasty - especially the second day! I substituted the salsa and can of diced tomatoes with 2 cans Rotel diced tomatoes and chilies. I also slow boiled the chicken in a covered skillet pan with water and a cup of chicken broth. Used the broth from cooking the chicken in the soup. I shredded the chicken. Finally, I added 1 Tbsp diced jalepenos. It's not super spicy, but has some nice heat.

I think it is important to note that I hate cooking. I consider myself terrible at it, but I made this recipe for a soup cook-off at my office and I won! I beat people who like and are good at cooking! Not too shabby. I've made this soup three times now and it is simply amazing. I don't much care for tomatoes so I used about a quarter cup of them and just used salsa for the rest. I also used frozen chicken and the cheapest canned soups I could find and the soup is STILL amazing.

This was good but with all the canned soups, I found it quite salty, even after using homemade chicken broth, canned tomatoes, and salsa all which have no or very little salt. i cooked a little longer with a peeled potato which did help. Thanks for the idea!

So good. Usually I don't take shortcuts with canned soups, but for this I make the exception. Ever since moving away from Michigan, and having Max & Erma's around the corner, I crave this soup come fall. Closest thing to going there!

We have made this soup 7-8 times...we always half it (using a can of Rotel tomatoes and 1/2 cup salsa)...always cook it in the crock pot...and always top with Mission tortilla strips and shredded cheese. We make it most often while camping and that makes it extra good. The only reaon I didn't give it 5 stars is that we think it tastes NOTHING like Max & Erma's Tortilla Soup. It is still wonderful and we LOVE it, but to claim it is like Max & Erma's just doesn't ring true for us. Making it right now actually!!
