Spicy chicken soup topped with cilantro - super easy to throw together! Don't omit that cilantro, it really 'makes' this soup! Tortilla chips make a nice side to this... or even crush a few and top soup before serving. WW points w/out optional ingredients = 4/serving

Delicious! I added in an onion and crushed chili flakes with the garlic and i also added in 1 tablespoon of chili powder, sprinkled with green onions but omitted the cilantro and left out the mozza cheese, thanks for sharing Brooke!

This was good and easy to make. I followed the recipe as written. I didn't add the optional onions but I did top with pizza blend cheese. We all enjoyed this. This also reheated well.

Yummy soup! I made it as directed but used a Mexican 4-blend cheese instead of the mozzarella. I like things a little spicier, so added more chili powder, some cumin (as previously suggested), and a dash or 2 of crushed red pepper flakes. Thanks Brooke for a nice lunch. Made for 1-2-3 Tag.
