I made this last night for dinner and everyone really liked it. It is a very decent soup! We made a few slight changes though. I cut out the tomato soup and only used 1 large jar of salsa and 1 can of peeled and diced tomatoes. It was PLENTY of tomato for this recipe. You do not need more! I did not have any chili powder at home, so I used a Piri Piri spice mix which was perfect. In it was dried Bird's Eye chili, onion, paprika, sea salt, pepper, garlic, and cow's parsley. I cut out the extra onion and garlic powder, but I went ahead and added the fresh garlic, onion, and additional dried parsley. I used 3 teaspoons of the Piri Piri and 2 teaspoons of Cayenne Pepper. My husband and oldest daughter wanted the soup spicier, but my youngest daughter and I thought the soup had just the right amount of heat. The canned tomatoes were far too acidic tasting, so I also added a teaspoon of sugar as well. Then it was perfect!
I couldn't find Chili beans, but a can of kidney beans and a can of white beans worked just fine. The sour cream was served at the table for each person to add to the soup themselves. I found that the serving size was absolutely correct. I have enough leftovers for all four of us to eat another bowl. I froze it for later use. Everyone agreed that the soup should get 4 stars. It was delicious. The only request I had was less chicken and more beans next time! Of course, this is a personal preference. Thank you for the wonderful recipe!
