Here's an endorsement if ever there was one. After ooh-ing and ah-ing over his first few bites, my husband said he would stand in line and take abuse from the soup nazi for this. I changed it up a bit which helped with the "ugly" factor that some reviewers mentioned. I sauteed cubed raw chicken breast in olive oil and then added the onions, etc. Because I had them on hand, I also used chopped celery, red, green and orange bell pepper in addition to the canned chilies. I used fresh jalepeno rather than canned. I had half a can of diced tomatoes left from a meal this week so dumped those in. I also started with dry beans and soaked and cooked them myself rather than using canned, so I left some of the liquid on the beans and added chicken base paste rather than using the canned broth. At serving, I followed someone's suggestion and crushed some tortilla chips in the bottom of the bowl, used cheddar and jack cheese to garnish,along with a dollop of sour cream and just a few sprinkles of fresh chopped cilantro. We loved it and will certainly make again. It wasn't ugly at all by the time i was finished with the make-over.
