One of my all time family favorites. I have also cooked it for a church dinner for 150 people and they loved it. It's an often requested meal. I love the idea of LHarper of adding lime juice, garlic, chili power and cumin. I'll have to try it next time I make it.

I've always loved this dish - had it first when I lived in Texas about 25 years ago. This recipe looks a bit bland, however. It helps to add a teaspoon of cumin, a teaspoon of chipotle chili powder, a half teaspoon of garlic powder, and two tablespoons of lime juice to the soup/RoTel mix. I also add chopped cilantro after it's cooked. Yummy stuff!

I have made it many times and now I am adding cream corn in with it.

I make this frequently in cold weather. It is wonderful. I add extra cheese and peppers since I have peppers growing in the garden.
