Yummy soup! I used leftover chicken that I had from teh night before which I threw in with the tomatoes after cooking the onions and garlic and no green pepper due to personal taste. We topped with chips and cheddar cheese instead of monterey jack. Thanks for sharing the yummy recipe!

We made a half and half batch of this tasty soup...half "spicy" and half "mild" (for my daughter who cannot eat spicy). It was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Next time I will make a double batch! Thanks, Queen uh Cuisine. Sorry...I took the photos before adding the toppings.

Very good and surprisingly easy to make. I couldnt find dried chipotles, so I bought canned and just used 3 of the peppers (diced) and some of the sauce. It was pretty spicy so you may want to use less if you want to try the canned chipotles.
