Weight Watchers Tortilla Soup done MY Way

Pin It

This is based on Weight Watchers 0 Point Tortilla Soup. But, I need meat in mine, I need the protein to keep me moving a bit longer. 

3 chicken breast,  in a pot with about 6 cups of water.
add 1 teaspoon salt and 1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper. Cook until the chicken is done, remove skin/bones
Or if you are cooking Grilled Chicken the night before do 2-3  extra and
use 4 cups of Can Chicken Broth (easier)

1 cup Chopped Onions Chopped
2 Garlic Cloves
3 Green Onions Chopped
 3-4 stalks of Celery Chopped
1/2 a Green Pepper
1/3 Cup Fresh Cilantro
Spray pan with spray oil.
Cook  in soup pan, make everything tender 10-15 minutes

Pour Chicken broth through a strainer and back into pot.(if homemade)

 Add Shredded Chicken

Add the rest of the ingredients  to the broth

2 - 12oz cans of Diced Tomatoes
1/2 cup Salsa, we like hot, use what you like

Serving Weight Watchers Tortilla Soup

Serve with Sour Cream (I use Greek yogurt)
And taco chips

  • When you have leftovers after the holidays or party, make this soup, you can add anything to it and it's wonderful.
  • Try adding fresh spinach, cut up add in about 5 minutes before serving.
  • You can use any meat, shred turkey, shred roast beef or pork, if you use another meat or don't want to do your own chicken stock, use 4 cups of Chicken Broth
  • This is a make it your own soup.
  • We eat this year round, mostly I think because it's a great solo-lunch for me.
  • It's very good without meat, it will be a 0 Point meal with no meat.
