Spicy Chicken Tortilla Soup
Very Good 4.8/5
(6 ratings)

This is so easy and delicious. I love it on cold days. It also freezes and re-heats very well.
I garnish with a little fat free sour cream and some of the Light tortilla chips (garnishes not included in nutritional info).

This makes a hearty and filling soup!

Very Good 4.3/5

My husband hates oatmeal, and this is a good, high fiber, high protein alternative. Can also mix up a big batch either on the stove or the crockpot and eat all week. Add whatever toppings you want to it: they're not included in the recipe calculation
