It’s the perfect time of year for soup making so I’m thrilled to share my favorite Chicken Tortilla Soup recipe. This recipe is so easy! For preparation, all you need to do is chop the onion, a rotisserie chicken, a tomato, cilantro and an adobo pepper. Then, mix, stir and serve. I love serving this soup with fresh avocado, tortilla chips and a squeeze of fresh lime juice. I often also dollop each bowl with a tablespoon of light sour cream or nonfat plain Greek yogurt. Serve with a salad for a healthy, light, gluten-free and low-calorie dinner!
•If you have not purchased chipotle in adobo sauce before, you can find the cans in the international foods section where Mexican foods are. Chipotles are very spicy so start with just one chopped and add as needed for taste.
•If you have leftover grilled, roasted or baked chicken, feel free to use this instead of a rotisserie chicken.
•Double the recipe so you’ll have leftovers.
•Prepare the soup ahead of time leaving out the cilantro and lime juice. When reheating, add these ingredients right before heating and serving.
