We really enjoyed this recipe. It tastes like restaurant quality. I didn't have a crock pot, so simmered everything for an hour. Also, added black beans and corn along with all the other ingredients. The spice quantities seemed daunting so I scaled back just a bit. Delicious!

This soup made a very tasty, filling dinner for a cold rainy Tuesday night. I too added black beans and some chipolte powder for extra spice. Next time I would only use about 2 Tbls of oil - 6 was way too much for us! Thanks for posting!

I loved this soup! I added black beans and carrots and omitted cilantro because I didn't have any. This was delicious. Oh, I also used blue corn chips since I didn't have tortillas.

This soup is excellent! I halved the recipe; used tortilla chips instead; tomatoes with basil and balsamic vinegar; dried cilantro; a whole tablespoon of chili powder and leftover rotisserie chicken. I used too many chips making it thicker than it should have been. (At this point it was super good.) So I added two cups of water and about a half a jar of Pace salsa. It changed the flavor a bit, but it was just as excellent in a different way. Awesome, awesome recipe!! And fast! Thank you!

really great flavor! the only thing i'd change next time around is to use bite-sized chunks of chicken instead of shreds - just a personal preference, since i don't care for the texture of most meat.

This was great, we doubled the recipe for a big family dinner. We also used flour tortillas because our family prefers them! I had to add extra oil to the frying tortillas.

This was an awesome soup. The taste was perfect for myself and hubbie. I added only 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp cayenne and that was right on for us. Only thing is, next time I think I will add between 5 - 6 tortillas in the beginning, to make it more brothy. That way, I think it will be more reminiscent of the soup we had in Chiapas. Thanks so much for the keeper.
