Pin It

Well, here I go again, the pounds are coming back on?? I love it here in Florida, Husband's home and so many things to do, BUT, I LOVE to go out to eat TOO !  

SO here I go again !

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

3 chicken breast,  in a pot with about 6 cups of water.
 Cook until the chicken is done, remove skin/bones. 
you can do this in the crock pot too.

I safe all the broth and use as chicken stock

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.
