I made this soup over the weekend. It was a very good soup. I used all chicken broth (instead of broth and water) and used the diced tomoatoes with chilies instead of the seperate items. I also added more chili powder as we prefer a little more spice. I took the leftovers to work and shared with everyone. it was a big hit with everyone and I'm sure I will make this soup again and again. Thanks for posting.

This recipes deserves a couple of stars. Great base recipe to work form. Adding leftover grilled vegetables to this recipe gives it a very distinctive taste. The author hit the theme of this soup, great soup for the winter. Thanks for adding it to the site!
