If I make this again, I'll leave out the beans, and add more vegetables. I would also add more diced green chilies to make it spicier. The name of the recipe led me to believe there would be more of a sweet pepper flavor, but the peppers were overpowered by the other vegetables and spices. I will stick to regular chicken vegetable or chicken tortilla soup recipes in the future.

Followed the recipe with a mix of peppers. It was colorful and tasty.

Aboslutely delicious and even better the next day! I definately will make this again. Elegant enough to serve to guests but it will be a standard on my meal list. Next time I will add more of everything as it was more soupy than a stew. I think it would be wonderful served with hot bread sticks.

Good but a little bland - would add more oregano and cumin both for sure, and agree that the bell peppers get overpowered - add plenty more! I recommend drizzling with olive oil just before serving for some extra flavor, and liked this best when served directly over couscous. Add maple baby carrots on the side.

Very easy and good. I used left-over rotisserie chicken and orange, yellow and red peppers I roasted myself. Crusty bread for dipping the broth, my husband and son loved it.
