Simple to prepare! Throw it in your crock pot in the morning, and it will be done when you get home from work! I use fat-free, low-sodium chicken broth, and no-salt-added diced tomatoes.

I agree that this is a good, basic soup recipe. I also had to "spice" it up a bit by adding cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, black pepper, cayenne pepper, red wine vinegar, oregano, and basil. Adjust to your own taste, and you've got a winner!

I loved the basics of this soup - you had no spices OR "love" so I added a whole lot of cumin, chili powder, cayanne pepper, wayy more garlic and a can of creamed corn. I blended up a can of pinto beans and the tomatoes (sweet onion) to make it a bit thicker. Great Base reciepe!

Super yummy and healthy!! I made the following adaptations: vegetable broth instead of chicken broth, only one can of tomatoes, used a full cup of green chiles, used one minced hot pepper, and cayenne pepper to taste. With those adjustments, it was hot to our liking. Thanks for the recipe!
