This soup was fabulous! My extrememly picky 2 1/2 year old had 4 helpings of it (she normally won't even finish one serving of anything!). I made some minor adjustments based on lack of what I had and wanting some more veggies (hominy, carrots, celery) and I didn't use the chile pepper but replaced with a can of green chile's and I used chicken breasts that I cooked. I'm passing this one on to everyone I know!

This is delicious! I have been eating it for days. I did do a couple things differently though. I did not have a can of chicken so I browned about 3 chicken breasts (equally 1.3lbs) in olive oil, seasoned with adobo and threw them in whole to cook in the crockpot. After about an hour and a half, I pulled them out and let them cool, then I shredded them and put them back in. Also, I didn't have any chili peppers, chili powder or cumin so I doubled the cayenne and used about 2 tsp of chili seasoning. They come in 1oz packets. I didn't have fresh lime juice, so I used only one T of the bottled kind I already had in the fridge. I didn't use the cheese at all and it was still great. I bought it, but forgot all about it as the soup was already so good. This is practically a chili. The flavor is absolutely wonderful and has a kick to it . . I love spicy!

Served this last night for Halloween. Excellent reviews by all! I used leftover chicken and Rotel instead of diced tomatoes and left out the chili pepper. Very easy and good

We really enjoyed this chili. I sauteed the onion, green pepper, and jalapeno before putting in the crock pot. I also use a rotisserie chicken.The color really turned a rich red-brown after several hours in the crock pot.I will definitely make it again! Roxygirl in Colo.

I guess this didn't go over very well with the family. My DH, who loves my cooking, took one bite and ended up eating gold fish crackers and popcorn for dinner.

This is a great soup recipe! It is just spicey enough and easy to put together. I used canned tomatoes that had the jalapeno peppers in them so omitted the chili pepper. Other than that I followed the recipe and we really enjoyed it. Thanks, Carole in Orlando
