Salsa Chicken Soup

Rose Daly


Due to lack of ingredients, a few changes were made to the original recipe which I found in the 2002 Taste of Home Quick Cooking Cookbook.It was sent to them by Becky Christman from Bridgeton,Missouri.I don't think that my changes affected the final results of the recipe. If you have that cookbook the orginal recipe is on page 182. Posted here on July 1st.,2011
