diced green bell pepper
2 (14.5 ounce) cans
chopped cooked chicken breast
1 (10 ounce) can
diced tomatoes with green chile peppers
I made this recipe exactly as directed and thought it was just "okay". So I added about a cup and a half of cubed velveeta with a little milk, melted it in the microwave and added it along with 1/2 teaspoon chili powder, 1/2 teaspoon cumin and about 1/4 teaspoon of chili pepper flakes. It was great and I will continue to make it this way, it was delicious.
It was very bland to me.
The soup was easy to make but I wouldn't call it spicy. The soup was somewhat bland so I had to add my own spice. A little cumin, cayenne, salt and sliced avocado made the soup a little more tasty. I would recommend this soup but with a little tweaking. Maybe adding a !!
FANTASTIC. I left out the green peppers and used chopped jalepenos instead of the green chile peppers. Perfectly spicy. It is great for when you have a cold, but don't wait until you get one to enjoy this yummy, yummy soup. 10 stars :)
My family is so funny when it comes to "spicy" meals. One time, its way too hot while another is too mild. In this case, we thought this was great! My six year old ate two small bowls without complaint. However, I added an extra cup of chicken broth and 1 cup dry noodles when you add the tomatoes and chilie peppers. When the noodles were cooked through and the soup was ready to serve, we topped each bowl with a little chedder cheese. This may have reduced the heat somewhat. Will be making this quick and easy soup again!
4 stars for ease but 3 stars for taste. It does need a few customizations. I added seasoned salt, chili powder, cayenne, and a dash of hot sauce (I like it spicy!). The recipe is good as a base ... you can add more vegetables: celery, cabbage, corn, beans - whatever you like!
Yum. I did add some chipotle peppers in adobo sauce and some cayenne to kick up the heat. A great "healing" soup for colds and the like.
Very yummy and simple! I added chopped jalapenos, chili powder, and cumin for extra spice. Served with crunched tortilla chips on top. Perfect for someone with a cold.
