Chicken Tortilla Soup



  • 6 oz chicken tenderloins, boiled and shredded
  • 1 14 oz can of Fiesta Corn (or any other kind of corn works), drained
  • 1.5 cups salsa (hotness of your choice)
  • 3 cups water (taken from what you boiled the chicken in) + 1 bouillon cube (or just use broth!)
  • 1/2 cup shredded fat free cheddar cheese
  • 3 small corn torillas, cut into strips


  1. Boil the chicken and shred it into bite sized pieces, reserving 3 cups of the water used to boil.
  2. Add shredded chicken, bouillon cube, salsa, and drained corn to the pot and return to a boil, then reduce to a simmer.
  3. Meanwhile, preheat the broiler to high and place the tortilla strips on a cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray, then spray the strips with cooking spray as well.
  4. Broil 2-3 minutes, "stirring" them around once, until crisp and lightly brown.
  5. Place the soup in 4 bowls, and top with 2TBSP cheese and 1/4 of the tortilla strips.

Makes 4 servings. Next time I might double the chicken (adding about 35 calories per serving), since Jeremy likes meatier.
