    HEP MEP's Note:

    I printed this off Ortega's web-site. The creator was a finalist in their 2002 cooking contest. It is REALLY good and really easy. My additions are a can of hominy (because I love it!) and shredded Monty Jack to top the soup. Great with tortilla chips!

      I am not normally a soup eater, but this was very hearty and had a great taste. I made exactly as the recipe directs, although I'm sure I added more chicken. The soup has plenty of character and robust flavor on its own; the cilantro-chile sour cream gives it a richness and extra zip that everyone enjoyed. This will definately be made over and over in our house. Thanks for posting.

      Just wonderful! I added extra garlic & rice to the soup and tripled the amount of cilantro to the cream sauce. (Just a personal preferance, though) Very simple to prepare and it did not take forever to make, which is nice. This is a keeper. Just terrific! Cheers!

      This was a delicious and hearty soup that warms the soul on a cold winter night. The cilantro cream adds just the right richness, without making the soup too heavy. I garnished with avocado slices, which were a nice contrast. Thank you for sharing this great recipe that will go in my keeper file for sure, MEP.
