I found this recipe online and while the orginal was pretty good of course I had to tweek it to make it even better! I get rave reviews every time I serve it! I am always asked for the recipe! Its very easy! I use all fresh ingredients when I make it but you can use canned or frozen for some of it! This is such a great recipe as it is very easy to adjust to your taste. I actually throw in a whole cooked and shredded chicken with a little extra broth. You can use canned tomatoes and I have used canned stewed tomatoes.I have used canned or frozen corn. I don't care for cilantro so I don't u
