I love this soup and make it often--it's so quick, versatile and easy! I add frozen yellow corn, black beans (if I have them), and a whole jalapeño or 2 to the mix. Sometimes I use one can diced tomatoes w/ green chilies, one can regular diced tomatoes (keeping the juice from both cans) and omit the tomato sauce.

A friend's mother gave me a recipe similar to this one. I use a family size can of soup and do not use the tomato sauce. I "soup" mine up though. I start with chicken breasts(cut in small cubes), onion, bell pepper, and garlic. Saute these first then add soup and rotel. I also add corn (canned or frozen) and some chopped cilantro right at the end. It is delicious!

This recipe was very delicious and sooooooo easy. I borrowed the idea from another reviewer and added frozen corn, black beans, and also I added about 1/2 a jalepeno, 2 tablespoons of salsa, salt and black pepper, 2 dashes of hot sauce. I like Spicy. It was thick with the added corn and beans, but very hearty and delicious. Thanks for the great recipes. I will make it again. :)

I did add some extra spice to this recipe (chili powder, cilantro & juice from a jar of hot chili peppers). This was so easy & very, very good. Great for football Sundays'.

This is the best for busy households. It takes longer to prepare than to warm up. And it is a big hit with everyone I serve it too.

I love the idea of using chicken and rice for the base of this soup. Great idea! As per other reviews, I went without the tomato sauce and instead doubled the diced tomatoes. Add a can of black beans. Added some spices - cumin, chili powder, paprika, garlic salt, black pepper to taste. You can really play around with this recipe to suit your tastes. I'm a from-scratch kind of cook myself, but because of how well this turned out, I will be taking the shortcut route in the future for tortilla soup. Love it!
