This recipe is a good starting point, but like others, I felt it needed to be jazzed up after reading comments about it being too bland or watery. I subbed chicken stock for the water (so 2 cans in total), and a can of Rotel tomatoes for the whole tomatoes. I also added 1/2 cup of uncooked rice, a can of rinsed black beans, and in place of cubanelles, used a small can of diced jalapenos. I put in 2 large boneless skinless chicken breasts and shredded them easily 4 hours later. It was VERY flavorful and spicy! We topped it with grated cheddar, greek yogurt, and tortilla chips. My family came back for seconds and said it was better than the tortilla soup at Panera. I will definitely make this again!
