    LOVED THIS! I added a can of corn for more texture. My other changes that I made were: I didnt have Rotel tomatoes w/chiles but I had diced tomatoes & 1 can of green chiles. I used leftover salsa chicken that I’d made the night before (it was too juicy for tacos!- Salsa Chicken=chicken breasts in crockpot, pour taco seasoning envelope over, pour salsa over- cook til done. Remove chicken, add sour cream to salsa mix, add shredded chicken back & serve on tacos or over rice- YUMMY!) This recipe will be put in my rotation- I’ll just add the jalepenos on the side for my own bowl. Thanks for sharing!

    Loved this soup! I cut back on the jalapenos but it still turned out great! I put them on the side for those that like more spice.
