Chicken "No Tortilla" Soup
Seriously, we love soup for lunch or dinner, no matter what time of the year it is. It could be hot outside but, as long as it's not hot inside, soup is an option.
This soup is pretty easy to make. We don't eat corn so, I didn't use tortillas or chips to top this soup. You could easily use Beanitos bean chips which would be awesome for this recipe! I just didn't have any at home when I made it.
2 chicken breasts
2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 yellow onion diced
1 cup chunky salsa
4 cups chicken broth, low sodium
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp cumin
2-3 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup uncooked quinoa, optional*
For Whole 30 or Paleo, omit qunioa.
Shred your chicken breast. In a large soup pot, cook the chicken in olive oil until it's fully cooked, about 3-5 minutes.
Add garlic, onions and cumin and stir. Pour in lemon juice, salsa, broth and chili powder and stir. Optional: add in the uncooked quinoa and stir.
Cover and cook on medium for 25 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
Top with Beanitos chips, mozzarella cheese, cashew cream or avocado. YUM!
