Mexicaly Chicken Soup

Patti Jagodzinski


This soup is a great addition to your Chicken Soup repertoire. It has enough kick to take it over the edge without having the kids say "whoa mom". Have some fun with it, if you don't like that many green chilies leave a can out.

Make sure you add the toppings, they're fun!
