I doubled the recipe, used roasted, New-Mexican green chilis, added cilantro, salt, a LOT of freshly ground pepper and used Colby-Jack cheese. Very tasty, very easy and very quick! I have already been asked for the recipe and I just served it for the first time a few minutes ago!

I thought it was good, nothing special, but it tasted okay. My kids wouldn't eat more than a couple bites, though. It is *really* easy, but I probably won't make it again. It's kind of bland. Not what I expected.

Very yummy, but not spicy. I was hoping to recreate Central Market's Green Chili Chicken soup, but this was creamier. I would definitely add something to spice this up.

Very easy to make, used boiled chicken instead of canned. I did use canned green chile's with much success.

Good recipe. I used grilled chicken breasts instead of canned and some diced tomato as well. It worked okay with regular milk instead of half-n-half. I would recommend it. Nice served with the buttered tortillas.

MMmmm... this was really tasty. However, my husband and I had this as a meal and it was barely enough. I would double it next time, and use twice as much chicken - just a little skimpy.

EASY! Used canned chicken, canned chili's and it was a snap for a weeknight! Tasted surprisingly good!

An excellent, easy and very flavorful soup. My husband and I love it and I've shared the recipe with friends and coworkers. I usually double the recipe and sometimes change up the seasoning to include chipotle. This also freezes very well.
