SOUP WEEK: BLOG SWAP SURPRISE!!! Tortilla Soup from Healthin' Ourselves!

Hey there!!! We're Ashley & Holly from "Healthin' Ourselves"!

We're two friends on a weight-loss journey together, who wanted to share our stories with the world. We feel so honored to be able to write a guest post on one of our absolute favorite blogs (seriously, these ladies are ingenious, aren't they?!?)! So without further ado...


Once in a while a meal will come along that the family just l-o-v-e-s! The kind of meal that satisfies all the picky eaters at the table, and leaves them asking for more. The kind of meal that is healthy, and you don't mind them asking for more of! The kind of meal that they are just as anxious to eat the next day. In our family(both of our families, actually), that meal is Tortilla Soup and we are SoOoO excited to share it with you!

This recipe is ridiculously quick and easy. We usually make it at least once a week, and I try to save it for  the nights that I know we'll be in a hurry, because it's that quick.

Here's what you'll need:
2 cups of cooked chicken (we've also used canned chicken, and personally, I like it better that way)
1 box chicken broth (if I've cooked a whole chicken, I use the broth from it instead)
1 can diced tomatoes
1 small can green chilli's
1 can black beans
1 can sweet corn
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup instant brown rice
2 tbsp ground cumin
1 tbsp chili powder
salt & pepper to taste

It's pretty much as easy as opening each ingredient and pouring them into a large pot. Bring it to a boil and then reduce the heat to a simmer. Let it stew for at least 15 minutes so that the rice can fully cook. After that, it's up to you! Eat it right away, or let it simmer for as long as you need to.

Before serving, top your bowl with some tortilla chips and cheddar cheese!

Yuuummmm! We just had this for dinner last night, and I'm seriously thinking about having it for breakfast! We hope you love it as much as we do!
