Laurie's notes for this recipe:
This is one of my favorite comfort foods on those cold days outside. It's so colorful and full of flavor. You can spice it up or down and make it thick or more soupy. I never measure so don't have exact amounts to provide - just improvise until it suits your taste buds!

The flavors in this soup are simply smashing! We love cumin in the Test Kitchen, so seasoned the chicken pretty heavily. When all simmered, the final product was a soup better than I've had at any Mexican restaurant. Muy bueno!

Laurie, I have looked on several recipe sites for this recipe and I will tell you, yours sounds the best of all. I plan to make this today. It would be a great (break) food from all the Christmas foods. My great niece and nephew are coming from Key West and they want to see SNOW !!! And, there is actually SNOW in the forecast this weekend. This would be a great dish for the cold temps...Thanks Dear !!! CHEERS !!! Jewel

Thank you Jewel and Wendy! I'm flattered! I sure hope you like it as much as I do. I haven't made it in awhile and it is making my mouth water thinking about it, so I believe I will be making it again soon myself! Jewel - this would be so tasty with that snow and cold temps you will be getting. I wish we were getting snow for Christmas, but it looks like it's just rain, rain, rain for us here in Seattle.
Wendy - thanks for the nice comments from a fellow blue-ribbon winner!! I am absolutely thrilled to have received it for this soup recipe!
