Excellent. Like all the other reviewers, I made my own variations: more chili powder and cumin because I didn't have jalapenos; red pepper flakes instead of cayenne. Used cooked leftover chicken, added a bag of fresh spinach at the end, and a jar of garden vegetable tomato sauce. Is it still the same recipe? Well, cousins! It was good.

Even though I did not have celery and used a roasted chicken this is still a good recipe. I put my stick blender and pulsed it twice before serving to make it creamy. We all enjoyed this dinner. Served with cornbread and kale chips. Yum. Thank you

Just a really good receipe. I made changes of my own changing the chile powder to 2 tbsps chipolte chili powder and 1 tsbs of mexican chili powder, 1 tsp mexican oregano, 2 cans of diced green chilies instead of the jalapenos. Finished with finely ground masa harina mixed with water to thicken. Served with chilie corn bread. Everyone thought it was wonderful.
