READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Kim D.

This soup has a great flavor! I found the recipe in the local newspaper, but changed it up a little. My kids even like it, but they like spicy foods!

I have made this many times. We all love this. Have made for guests as well. I do have a few modifications: use 1 TB dried minced onion, 1 TB diced jarred jalepeno, cut the carrots into small pieces, I add a can of sweet, drained corn, and I cut up the chicken into bite sized pieces (can use precooked). Also only use 1-2 TB oil. We like to top with sour cream, which we would never leave out!
