SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

CORN: You can substitute canned sweet corn for the southwest corn. You will need to drain the canned corn before adding it to the soup.

TOMATOES: You can substitute two cans of Rotel tomatoes for the petite diced tomatoes in this flavorful dish. 

SPICY: If you want an even spicier soup, substitute hot enchilada sauce for the mild. You can also substitute hot taco seasoning for the mild taco seasoning and add a small can of diced, roasted green chiles.

CHEESE: Cheddar cheese, mozzarella cheese, or Monterey Jack cheese would all be great options in place of the cheddar jack cheese for topping your soup.

CHICKEN: If you happen to have leftover rotisserie chicken from the grocery store, or even cooked boneless chicken breasts or chicken thighs, you can substitute that for the canned chicken in this easy dish.

CHICKEN BROTH: If you are trying to watch your salt intake, you can substitute low sodium chicken broth for regular chicken broth in this easy recipe.
