This is a wonderful recipe. I cook for a crowd (80 people ish) weekly and this is by far a favorite. I tweak a few things for more flavor however. Instead of flour I use Masa, instead of plain tomatoes I use Salsa and Ro-tel. And I add (based on how spicy you like it) crushed chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. This adds more flavor, makes it thicker, and gives it heat.

Hmm... YUMMYY!


I had to adjust this as I went along, but it turned out very well. I didn’t have no-salt-added tomatoes or reduced sodium chicken broth, so I used 3-10 oz. cans of Rotel and regular chicken broth. I also used more onion (2/3 cup chopped). I was concerned that the full package of taco seasoning would make this too salty, so I only used about half the package. Well, it was still too salty, so I improvised by adding a half cup of heavy cream to diminish the saltiness somewhat. Seemed to work out just fine. The Rotel gave this some great flavor and a nice amount of heat. Next time I might thicken this with a little corn starch to give it a little more body.
