"This is my response to craving mexican food but not being able to have the calories. This soup is very filling and low points- 6 1/2 for the whole recipe. You can control the heat of this recipe by the type of salsa you add- I usually use mild. Whatever heat you choose, it should be fresh salsa so the cilantro and other flavours are strong enough. If you really like it hot, add some chillies! I like to chop the ingredients fairly small for this recipe so you get an even flavour balance in every bite."

"This soup is going to be a lifesaver! DH just started WW recently (think like in the past week) and this is so filling, and it has protein (which is so important for keeping my hunger in check) and it low points. Which is great because I only get 19! :) Thanks so much for posting Shuz! [Made for Holiday tag February 2010]. OK UPDATED to note that while this soup is full of things that are important to Weight Watchers (low points, good for you, very filling etc etc) it really really tastes good too! :)"
"Yum! Nice and spicy (the way we like it!). I don't care for onions so replaced them with red bell pepper. Light and healthy but very filling - can't beat that - thanks for sharing the recipe!"
"Yumm. This is so simple that your DH can make it! *wink*. Seriously aside from being easy it's also great tasting and filling. I made some cornbread to go with and it made a terrific cold, rainy night dinner. I'm really glad that I tried this and plan to make a large batch to freeze in single serving sizes. :D"
"This was great. Easy and quick to throw in the crockpot. I let mine cook all day long then shredded the chicken breasts, squeezed a lime, and added fresh parsley (out of cilantro) right before serving. Very tasty. Thanks for posting."
"This soup is good, but I missed the flavours of a more authentic chicken tortilla soup, such as fresh lime. Perhaps it was the salsa I used. I did also add fresh cilantro and fresh lime, but still, it wasn't quite there for me."
"Just started a diet....not weight watchers, but decided to try this. I'm not really allowed to have some of these ingredients, but it was wonderful to taste some heat! The sodium content was way over what I'm allowed to have, but otherwise I could put the ingredients into a category or two!! LOL :). Regardless of the diet issues, I really enjoyed this soup! Very enjoyable."
