Ingredients

    Carrots - 2 cups diced
    Celery - 2 cups diced
    Onion - 1 large diced
    Minced Garlic - 2 tsp
    Olive Oil - 2 Tbsp
    Hungarian Wax Peppers - 2 peppers
    Fat Free or Reduced Fat Chicken Broth - 16 cups
    Diced Tomatoes with Green Chili Peppers - 2 cans
    Rotel Tomatoes in Cilantro and Lime Juice - 1 can
    Whole Pre-Cooked Rotisserie Chicken - Skin removed, off bone, chopped meat
    Cilantro - 1 bunch chopped

    Garnish (NOT INCLUDED IN CALORIE COUNT)
    Fat Free Sour Cream
    Reduced Fat Shredded Cheese
    Tortilla Chips
    Avocado

Directions

Makes 10 2-cup servings
Remember to ADD GARNISH SEPARATELY in your food tracking.

Heat 2 Tbsp olive oil in a stock pot, and saute carrots, celery, onion and garlic over medium heat. While cooking veggies, clean Hungarian wax pepper of seeds and white ribs and then mince (please use gloves, as this will sting your hands for days if you get it under your finger nails). Toss into veggies as they continue to soften.

Remove skin and bones from rotisserie chicken and dice or tear the meat. Add 16 cups broth to the stock pot. Add chicken and canned tomatoes. If you cannot find Rotel tomatoes with lime juice, add a little fresh lime juice and an extra can of regular diced tomatoes.

Stir and bring to a boil. Add chopped cilantro, the more the better. Reduce heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes.

If desired, serve each bowl with garnish of 1 Tbsp fat free sour cream, 1 tsp reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese, 1 slice avocado and 5 tortilla chips.

    Sounds great! I have been looking for a recipe similar to On the Border's and this may be close. I will try it with my own roasted chicken leftovers later this week. - 8/18/09
