Mexican Chicken Soup

Super fast and delicious spicy Mexican soup.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Heat oil in a large sauce pan over medium heat. Add onion and jalapeno; cook, stirring often until they are tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic; cook 30 seconds more.
  2. Add broth (low sodium if possible), increase heat to high, and bring to a rapid simmer. Add chicken and cook until no longer pink, about 3 minutes.
  3. Stir in salsa, bring back to a simmer, season with salt and pepper to taste, and serve hot.
  4. Note: servings are approximately 2 1/2 cups. Jalapeno can be left out if soup is too spicy.

This is an excellent soup for all phases of the diet. I make it in big batches and freeze individual portions for lunches at work. It can be rather spicy, but using mild salsa and leaving out the jalapeno tames it down quite nicely.

It works for me. I'm not a super strict weight watchers person. I'm looking at the serving size (large) and the total calories...

Great recipe! However, I did not sautee the peppers/onions/chicken in oil. Instead, I used no fat cooking wine (20 cal) and a bit of water. Thanks for sharing!
