This soup tastes like a chicken taco or chicken tamale! A great change from regular chili. Also freezes well for lunches. You can substitute different beans for the garbanzos, such as black beans (drain and rinse), or kidneys, or pintos.
This is a mild dish. Adding some chopped jalapeño peppers along with the Ro-Tel will increase the heat if you like.
