This is to die for! I made a couple of substitutions to accomodate what I had in the kitchen. Instead of whole chopped tomato, I used a can of rotel tomatoes with chilies. I omitted the can of chilies, as it was already in the tomatoes. I also used a package of taco mix, as I did not have cumin. For those watching their calorie consumption, the serving size on this recipe is huge! I bet you could call easily get 8 servings and cut the serving size by half ( 121). MMMMMMM good!

I personally didn't not try this soup, but it was 5 stars from the critics. I did substitute brown rice for the white rice. Thank you for sharing your recipe.

I followed this recipe exactly except for using vegetarian chicken strips and vegetable buillion. It was delicious and exactly what I was hoping for. The lime juice added greatly to the final taste, so do not omit. Very easy to make.

My BF picked this recipe out and made it for dinner the other day and I really enjoyed the leftovers for lunch yesterday (and breakfast this morning:D). Since we are vegetarians we subsituted vegetable broth for the chicken broth and a soy chicken substitute for the chicken breasts. I wouldn't recommend omitting the lime juice as it is key. Thanks for a delicious recipe, Cat!
