I used Pam spray instead of oil and I replaced the evaporated milk with 1% milk as well as using no sodium added bouiilion and this recipe was still very good!

Nothing could be better...

Absolutely delicious and so easy to make. I didn't have poblano peppers, so I substituted jalepenos for a nice twist. Very tasty! My husband and I ate the whole pot in one setting!! Will definitely make again for family!

This is a very delicious soup, with just the right degree of hotness to it. Great on these cold days.
