  • About This Recipe

    “Ridiculously easy and quick. My husband’s favorite. The only way to mess this one up is to add too much milk making the soup too thin. I got this recipe from my mother, but I don’t know where it originated. The amounts can vary. You really can’t mess this one up.”

  • “This has to be the easiest, quickest and most delicious soup yet.It takes minutes, but really delivers on flavor. I used a rotisserie chicken as they provide more flavor. I also added more milk to thin the soup and I added chopped cilantro and a bit of cayenne for a “kick”.Will definitely make this soup again — it’s a great got-to recipe when you need something quick.Very filling and flavorful with the mild green chilies.Made for Fall PAC, 2012.”
