Da’ Bears! I am dressed and ready for the game. I’ve got my jersey on and Chicken Tortilla Soup in the crock pot.
As you might have noticed, I don’t have many original recipes. I went looking for a healthy and low-sodium recipe one day and instead put a few ideas together to create this soup. Luckily, I wrote it down and added it to my recipe book for the next time. So here is my version of a healthy Chicken Tortilla Soup.
Start by gathering ingredients.
Start by chopping 1 onion and 1 green pepper. Saute with garlic until soft and fragrant 5-7 minutes. Stir in chili powder (about 1 tablespoon).
Meanwhile, season 1 pound of chicken breast with salt and pepper. Heat in pan over medium heat until both sides are cooked (about 5 minutes on each side) before placing the chicken in the crock pot sprayed with Pam.
Add ingredients to crock pot…
4 cups low sodium chicken broth
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
Onion and pepper mixture
1 bag of steamed corn
1 can of low sodium diced tomatoes
1 can diced mild green chilis (can substitute spicier chilis per taste)
1 jar of salsa
Stir everything together and set per crock pot instructions.
Dinner will be ready in just a few hours. I like to serve my soup with cheese, chips, and avocado. Hopefully, we’ll be celebrating a BEARS victory. Enjoy!
PS. I got so excited about my football game that I totally forgot to add…about an hour before the soup is done, shred the chicken with two forks, return to crock pot, and cook another hour or so! Now you can enjoy!
