“This recipe I made up after craving soup and rummaging through my cupboards. Very simple and tastes even better the next day. I love it spicy, but you can adjust accordingly. Also great South Beach Diet meal.” - by RLITTLE1

First of all, I used two cans of diced tomatoes with Italian seasoning,..." See more undrained, instead of whole tomatoes and one can of diced tomatoes w/chilis. Then I used lots more garlic, minced (four cloves - you can never have too much garlic!) Then I added a cup of frozen corn and some leftover brown rice (probably 1 1/2 cups cooked). Lastly, I used some fresh chopped cilantro. I love rice in my soup, expecially since it absorbs the flavor and makes it hardier."
"I make a similar soup, though try to pack a few more vegetables in mine -- small cubed zucchini, carrot, corn and celery. Cilantro is a perfect bright accent to the soup, and I like to add small cubes..." See more of avocado as well - their buttery richness is a pleasant surprise!"
"This is similar to the famous "soup Nazi" Chicken Chili soup. I make a version of this regularly. A couple suggestions to make it easier. 1) Brown the chicken in the soup pot, cook through and shred w..." See morehile you cook the aromatics in the pot. 2) Add a can of cream style corn to the soup. This is really delicious!!"
