Very good! I added tomato soup, green chilies, can of creamed corn, chili powder, salt, garlic salt, white cheddar cheese, 2 celery ribs and a lot of fresh cilantro. Also used whole grain tostitos as I didn't have any corn tortillas on hand. So, yummy and had plenty to freeze for later. Will definitely make this again!
I have made this soup over and over again and it is one of my very favorites!!!!!! instead of using tomatoes and chiles in a can I use Hunts canned tomatoes (fire roasted) and cut up two jalapeno peppers by hand. I use fresh cilantro, I don't even measure how much I use, I just use almost an entire bunch. Delicious soup and awsome recipe!
YUM! I have made this about five times and everyone, friends and family alike ALWAYS ask for the recipe. It is delicious! I like to use fresh cilantro instead of dried, and Rotel tomatoes make it really spicy--I prefer to use Del Monte's. I also use DM's mexican recipe stewed tomatoes. The fried corn strips are so good and easy-they are really pretty if you make them super skinny. Some cheese to go on top and avocado on the side for those who like it and you are good to go!
This has been a family favorite since it was first published. Even my picky eater loves it. I no longer fry tortilla strips for garnish; I cheat and use Fritos or Tostitos. However, I always use the tortillas in the soup. I also add black beans and corn if I have a can to use up. Just makes it more filling and delicious.
