Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flavorful soup! Not only was this super easy to make, but a huge hit! The house smelled amazing! Leftovers went to my dad who is a phenomenal cook - it even impressed him so much that he asked for the recipe and wanted me to order him the seasoning! Note - it is SPiCY and full of flavor. We used cheese, sour cream and even cottage cheese to tame it down for the kids. Next time I would probably only use 1/2 the pack of seasonings but the overall recipe was a winner! I can't wait to make it again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Warning -Very Spicy!! I made this as part of a Freezer Meal party, so there really was no opportunity to know just how spicy it was going to be until it was done cooking. It is definitely not family/kid friendly and was far too spicy for me. Although the flavors were great. We cut it with cream cheese and sour cream and that helped a bit. It would have been very helpful if there was something on the recipe card or even on the Chipotle Slow Cooker seasoning that indicated "HOT". Then I could have decided to perhaps only use 1/2 of the seasoning in the recipe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Crock Pot Meal! I love a meal that is ready when I get home from work. My whole family loved this one. Just a tad bit of spice made this a thousand times better than soup from a can. We will make this again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Holy spicy!! My family loves spicy dishes. But this was over the top and unfortunately inedible. Such a bummer. A handful of cheese (try to ignore the calories) and some Greek yogurt helped, but was taking water breaks between bites to get through it. Not wanting to waste ingredients, I will try doing something so it doesn't all go to waste. Shout out to the 30 meal kit. Everything this else has been amazing!
