I made this exactly as written except for two bonehead shopping mistakes on my part! I thought I had enough chicken broth at home and didn't, so I had to use 4 cups of chicken broth and 2 cups of vegetable broth. Mistake #2 was that I can't read my shopping list, and forgot to buy the can of Mexicali corn, so I had to substitute a cup or so of frozen corn kernels. Anyway...despite my screw-ups, this was a lovely meal, and one I will definitely make again.
Very good and easy to make! This makes a lot and still is relatively low in calories/fat. Thanks for sharing!
