This Easy Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe Has All The Great Flavor of a Traditional Tortilla Soup While Still Managing To Be Good For You!
Mexican food doesn’t have a reputation as a “health food” — but it doesn’t have to be that way.
Take tortilla soup recipes, for example.
While many restaurant tortilla soups are loaded with fat and sodium, it’s possible to make a delicious, authentic tortilla soup recipe at home that will blow the pre -made stuff away and keep you lean and in shape (or help you get there, if you’re just starting out.)
This Chicken Tortilla Soup recipe uses all kinds of whole — but convenient — ingredients to make a bowl of soup that will trigger guilt-free seconds. And if you’re cooking for kids, this Chicken Tortilla Soup recipe will be a real hit, since it duplicates the fuller-fat versions of tortilla soup out there, without actually having all of the fat and sodium. No one will know the difference, trust me.
The best part is you can literally throw this Chicken Tortilla Soup recipe together in about 30 minutes — which makes it uber convenient for harried professionals, busy families who are pressed for time, but still want to eat healthy, and gym rats who want to get in their nightly protein after a great weight training session.
