This was quick and easy to adapt with ingredients that I had on hand. I added a can of black beans and used a can of diced tomatoes with zesty jalepenios in place of the chopped tomatoe and green chiles. I didn't have a can of creamed corn so I added frozen corn kernals instead. I didn't have half and half either so I thickened up some 2% milk with a flower and butter rue. I used a dash of cayenne pepper and a shake of smoked paprika instead of the tobascoe because I don't like the flavor of tobascoe.

This recipe is awesome. If you want to kick up the heat, use a can of HOT jalapenos ((Hatch brand are very good) and a decent splash of Picante Sauce (such as Mi Valentina) at the end. Being lazy, I add a can of regular Rotels (with the hot Jalapenos and the Mi Valentina) and it has great heat but doesn't overwhelm the flavor. Thanks Miss Gracie

I'm not a tomato person, but I have to say that adding the tomato was excellent! I actually had a can of Rotel on hand, so I just used that instead of the tomato and green chiles (as essentially, it is the same thing), and it turned out great!

I made this for a luncheon I catered and it was well liked by all. It was very easy and quick to make. I put mine in the crockpot to keep warm and added the chopped tomatoes just before serving. Thanks for posting!

This was good but I ended up making a few changes. After I made it according to the directions (with the exception on the tomato- I left that out to please DH and DS. I also added only about 1 1/2 cups of cheese- simply my preference), I decided it needed a bit more zip. I sauteed a fresh jalapeno (which I will add in with the chicken, onion, and garlic next time) and then added about 1/4 cup of some very hot homemade salsa. Overall, the soup was very good.

This was a really tasty soup...I made it when I came home from work and it was pretty quick to make! The kids loved it too. I kept the hot peppers out and we just added some cayenne pepper to our own bowls...yum!!

Really great recipe! I did add 2 ears of fresh corn, cooked, cut off the cobb at the end. I also used a can of fire roasted tomatoes instead of a chopped fresh tomato. I used 1 cup of cream instead of half and half because that is what I had. Thin with water, if needed. I changed it a little but not enough to make any real difference.

I'm not going to rate this since I changed quite a few of the ingredients to make more of a tortilla soup but I did use this cooking method. I increased the chicken broth to 4 cups and reduced the cream to 1 cup. I omitted the corn and added chopped carrots. I used a can of Rotel instead of the tomatoes, chilies and tabasco and added some taco seaspning. The flavor was great, so spicy and creamy! I'm sure this recipe would also be good as stated.
