Clean Eating Chicken Tortilla Soup

This is the perfect soup to make on a cold day...or any day! We made this using our Thanksgiving turkey left overs in lieu of chicken. It still tasted GREAT!

Ingredients:

  • 1, 14 oz. can black beans (drained and rinsed)
  • 1, 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes (I use Hunt's)
  • 1 cup chopped, cooked chicken (I used leftover turkey)
  • 1/2, 4 oz can green chiles
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 16 oz chicken broth (I use my own!)
  • Salt / Pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. lime juice
Directions:
  1. In a stock pot, heat oil on medium heat and add onion and garlic.
  2. Add chicken and spices, cook for one minute. 
  3. Add all other ingredients and bring to a boil.
  4. Set to simmer for 15 minutes.
  5. Serve with crushed tortilla chips and cheese.

I like to top mine with a dollop of plain Greek yogurt as well. You can also stir in a little cream cheese for a creamier version!
