I liked this soup so much more than I thought I was going to (isn't that random?). I followed the recipe (for the most part) with some additions from the refrigerator as soup in my house means "empty out the fridge". I used left-over Cornish Game Hen instead of chicken thighs, and added a leek and a tomato. I cut back on the cayenne, too, as it was plenty spicy for me with the jalapeno. The tortilla chips really compliment this soup. I sprinkled a Mexican blend of cheese on my bowl as I didn't have any Monterey Jack. Really good soup, uses common ingredients that are easy to find (even in Western Nebraska), and a great way to warm up when it is a little chilly outside! Made for Photo Tag.
