I really liked this soup with modifications. For one thing, the sodium content listed is almost my whole daily allotment of sodium! So I used my homemade chicken broth with no salt; low salt diced tomatoes to which I added half a small can of green chilies; salt free canned corn without the peppers; and fresh chicken that I cooked. Even with those changes the soup required very little salt. And it was yummy, nice kick from the chipotle. Served with ciabatta rolls.

I had to alter the recipe slightly.... I forgot the Chiptole peppers, so i followed other reviews advice and used a little salsa verde and hot sauce. I also couldn't find the tomatoes with chilies. I used a can and 1/2 of Rotel instead(thinking it was the same thing?). Judging by the heat factor, I am thinking the Del Monte brand is not as spicy as Rotel. I baked my own chicken tenders to cut down on some of the sodium. Great winter meal! Super easy.

Very tasty and spicy. I used 3 chiles and that was too spicy for me. I used frozen corn and 1 can of chickpeas. The soup was a little salty. Very easy to make and will make again.

This was an excellent soup and so quick and easy to make. Perfect for weeknights. So full of flavor, too! We'll be having this many times this winter.

I first found this recipe in the Cooking Light Magazine 10 years ago, and it is one of our family favorite soups. It is delicious, and flavorful without it being too spicy. Now that my kids are older I add more chile's to it, and I do also add regular white onions when sauting the vegetables. We double and sometimes triple the recipe when we make it, because we will eat it for days! The flavors blend even better the longer we have it.

Wow this is some recipe! This was the perfect antidote to a rainy day. I did not use the chipolte peppers but put some green salsa instead. My husband had two bowls of it.

Super super easy recipes and delicious. I added a can of black beans drained and rinsed because I had it on hand. I also bought the pre-chopped onion and pepper to make the recipe even easier. Next time, i will add two of the chipotle peppers because I like things spicy. Great for a weeknight meal on a cold night. I brought the leftovers for lunch.

This was great, cold weather soup. Will recommend and remake.

This was a huge hit! I used three large cans of chicken breast for the chicken, and used chopped Anaheim chili instead of bell pepper. Fast, cheap and easy. Served with sour cream, grated cheese and chopped avocado topping and warm tortillas on the side. Husband went crazy for it. Will DEFINITELY make again!

This is a delicous hearty soup! Great on a cold rainy day or when you have a cold. On the spicy side--and I never know what to do with the remaining can of chili's, but worth it!

Loved this, hubby too! I subbed black beans for corn and did not have rotel tomatoes so I adjusted the smoky sauce from the chili peppers adding until the taste was delish!! Of course I used regular stewed tomatoes also I used red and orange bell peppers in place of green and I had mesquite frozen precooked chicken breasts that I used in this dish as well as on side of Tortilla Pie on whole wheat tortillas. Will make again!!

Love this soup! I keep most of the items on hand to make it, so if I need a fast, satisfying dinner, this can be ready in a flash. It tastes like it cooked all day! I often make it with the leftovers from a grocery rotisserie chicken. I also store the extra chipotle peppers in the freezer, and there is an added bonus by doing this. It's not wasteful, and the frozen chipotle peppers are much easier to dice!

Very good soup. Perfect for a cold day. I used frozen corn and pre-cooked rotisserie chicken from the grocery store. Very easy and fast.

By far the best soup I've ever made in 35 years of cooking for family. Made no changes except adding chicken last minute so it wouldn't get tough and rubbery. I would recommend for anyone who doesn't like spicy-hot (and it is) that you remove some of the seeds from chipotle. BTW the chipotle in adobo sauce is best found in Mexican-type grocery--my local supermarkets did not have it.

Really? Combine 4 cans together with some pre-cooked chicken? Why not just buy a can of chicken soup?
