I needed a recipe to use up the last of my chicken and the stellar stock that I made from it. I couldn’t find a recipe for chicken tortilla soup that was healthy enough or flavorful enough. So I just threw a bunch of things together and it turned out pretty well!
2 1/2 Cups Chicken Stock
1 cup of water
1/4 cup lime juice
1 cup shredded and pre-cooked chicken
3 stalks celery
1 small onion
1/4 cup chopped jalapeño peppers
1 1/2 cups frozen corn
1 can black beans
1 can white butter beans (or any other bean that you think would be good)
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
Salt and pepper to taste
Chop up vegetables coarsely, add all ingredients to a saucepan or crockpot. Heat on stove until boiling, reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes. If in slow cooker, cook on medium for 2-3 hours. Top with plain greek yogurt, shredded cheese, and crushed tortilla chips.
The whole time I was eating this I wished I could pair it with a frozen margarita, it just seemed like that would of been the best combination.
You can also add tomatoes, I just didn’t have any at home.
I couldn’t accurately add the nutrition information for this recipe because I don’t know what my homemade stock facts would be. Sorry guys!
Whats your favorite Margarita recipe!?
