This is a very easy and quick meal. I added a jar of pace instead of the tomatoes for more of a spicy flavor. I used corn tortilla chips and topped with sourcream and cheese also. This is a must have in the winter time for sure!!

Instead of a cup of milk, I used one cup of homemade chicken stock. Nice filling soup, but bland. I ended up throwing in a half batch of homemade taco seasoning and a little Frank's Hot Sauce to goose it up a bit. Makes a great quick lunch on a cold afternoon.

I like the black beans you added, they give the dish a nice color combo.

This was very fast to put together, tasted good, and didn't get too many dishes dirty. I made exactly as written except I did not make my own baked tortilla strips, I just served it with some bagged tortilla chips and it worked perfectly. I would definitely make this again.

Very easy and very good .... I followed the directions exactly, then I also added 1 cup of sour cream and 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese. Mixed until all was melted .... Would definitely make this again.
