    I have been making this for a while and this is the best chicken (tortilla soup) recipe I have found. I have made adjustments and added 1 can black beans (rinsed) and 2 TBSP dry ranch dressing mix and 1 can Rotel. AMAZING.  -  28 May 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    What a great slow cooker soup! My husband had three bowls of this. I followed the recipe pretty closely, and made some additions to "veg it up". I added a small zucchini and summer squash, halved and thinly sliced, and a can of rinsed black beans. I used Rotel & just a little more chicken broth. Doubled the cumin (LOVE the stuff) and added some Penzey's Bold Taco seasoning to the mix. This was great! Plenty of left-overs went in the freezer. Sincere thanks for sharing your recipe, a keeper.  -  19 Jul 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
