    This is to die for! I made a couple of substitutions to accomodate what I had in the kitchen. Instead of whole chopped tomato, I used a can of rotel tomatoes with chilies. I omitted the can of chilies, as it was already in the tomatoes. I also used a package of taco mix, as I did not have cumin. For those watching their calorie consumption, the serving size on this recipe is huge! I bet you could call easily get 8 servings and cut the serving size by half ( 121). MMMMMMM good!

    I personally didn't not try this soup, but it was 5 stars from the critics. I did substitute brown rice for the white rice. Thank you for sharing your recipe.

    I followed this recipe exactly except for using vegetarian chicken strips and vegetable buillion. It was delicious and exactly what I was hoping for. The lime juice added greatly to the final taste, so do not omit. Very easy to make.
