    This fills a crockpot to the VERY TOP! I went over by 6 ounces on the pinto beans and 8 ounces on the chicken. It was a good thing I had to drain and rinse the beans or I'd really have overflow problems. I'm still going to have to off set the lid when it gets hot so it does not boil over. I cooked the breast yesterday afternoon, pulled it apart that night. Then added everything else in and put it in the refrigerator until after church this morning. Plugged it in and the soup was ready 6 hours later. Made for *LOW IN OR FREE OF* game 2008

    I love this recipe. It makes about 15 cups and is too much for my 5 qt crockpot. I have also made this on the stove with great success. Sometimes I add a bit more broth. Thanks for sharing.

    More of a stew than a soup. Great flavor. Almost didn't fit in my large crock pot.

    All three of us (my husband, daughter and myself) really enjoyed this recipe. It made a large amount with plenty of leftovers for additional meals. The only thing I would say is that it is more "stew-y" than "soup-y" because there wasn't a lot of liquid in the pot. This worked to our advantage for one meal -- we used a slotted spoon to serve up the good stuff over tortilla chips like nachos -- topped with some low fat cheese and a dollop of low fat sour cream -- YUM!

    Our family loved this recipe! My husband used jalepeno peppers as garnish along with the other suggestions. I was short on time, so I browned 1lb. Ground sirloin & used beef broth. I've had 3 requests for the recipe since I posted the picture on facebook last night. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
