    This is a really tastey soup. The only thing I did differently was add a can of chicken broth and cooked it longer. We served it with flour tortillas with a little melted cheese rolled up for dunking in the soup.  -  19 Feb 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is the best soup I have had in a very long time! I did add 2 extra cups water while cooking chicken. Then topped it with shredded chedder, sour cream and crushed tortilla chips. Thank you Marggie! My husband thanks you too!  -  24 Oct 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    If you are a mexican fan this soup is for you. Instead of 4 chicken breasts I used 6. But this was a hit w/ in-laws and other family members. I've been passing this out as fast as I can!!!  -  22 Aug 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
