“Some simple modifications can make this delicious soup even healthier! I reduce the sodium by using low-sodium chicken broth and fresh chilies instead of canned. Also, using vegetable cooking spray instead of oil helps reduce the fat content. Adding some tasty fresh toppings helps my family get more vitamins. I also reduce fat by using boneless, skinless chicken breasts.”

I used one can diced tomatoes instead of whole peeled and I used more chicken broth in place of the water. Very quick to prepare. We topped this soup with a little shredded cheddar cheese, reduced fat sour cream and I served homemade fry bread with it to sop up the broth. I'd make this again but I'd add more spices.

Wonderful recipe! I was skeptic that the flavor would be ideal in a "healthier" version of this recipe, but it turned out wonderful! I used about 25% more chicken, half a can of diced jalapenos instead of banana peppers, a can of Bush's seasoned black beans and kept everything else the same. The chicken was added at the beginning raw, and turned out amazingly tender after cooking 7 hours.

I am so excited to be the first reviewer and to have such wonderful things to say about this recipe! First of all it was so easy to make and it was so filling as well. I have two small boys and they both ate all of it! I did adjust a few things due to the fact that the kids are not big on spice incase it would be I only used one pepper. I also ended up cooking it on top of the stove top since I found out my crock pot was broken. Great it is a definite keeper:)
