It's -7 degrees in Wisconsin and this is just what the doctor ordered! PS - threw in some sauteed garlic and onions

I'm laying on the couch absolutely stuffed on this soup... It was so good it may have killed me. O.o To the poster. I'm pretty sure (almost positive) that if you substitute veggie for chicken stock its vegetarian, if you remove the sour cream from it it should be VEGAN if I'm not mistaken :))))! (only about 80% sure on that). This soup DESERVES its 5 star ratings. It not only serves as a perfectly tasty recipe stand alone it is SUPER versatile! I made my BB's from scratch used half of my own homemade salsa and half a can of tomatoes because I'm bad and didn't see they didn't have green chilies in them. Topped it with a tiny bit of cheddar, sour cream, and cilantro... AMAZING!! Thanks a ton. Joe

This is absolutely delicious! I didn't have the diced tomatoes w/chilies, so subbed salsa instead.

I would have given it 5 stars - it is delicious - but I wished that the ingredients were listed better. I saw 2 cans of beans and as I followed the recipe I got down to another can needed (luckily I did not have to run out as I had one more). It would have been so much easier to list 3 cans in the beginning. Also I added some oregano and more cumin. Really good!

LOVED how easy this was! I kicked up the cayenne to 1/2 tsp and only used 1 can of chicken broth. I wanted a thicker soup so adding the second can would have made it thinner. We topped the soup with mexican cheese, sour cream, scallion and fresh cilantro! The rice isn't needed but if you use two cans of broth, you might need it.
