For the last few days our family has been battling some sort of illness. Thankfully nothing super major but enough to make us move a little slower than usual. So I’ve been trying to keep meal time simple and when I came across this recipe for Tortilla Chicken Cilantro Soup I knew it would be perfect. I also happened to have most of the ingredients on hand (including the zucchini & carrots) plus some leftover grilled chicken to substitute the chicken that was called for, I knew it would be even easier. I substituted their other store brand (Central Market) organic chicken broth for what was called and could not find a decent avocado on the day I shopped, but I think it all came together well otherwise!
Wow! I was right. This soup was done and in our bowls in just about 30 minutes. It was the perfect thing to warm our bodies as we try to get over our stuffy noses and sore throats. Next time I will probably cut the zucchini into smaller chunks as I think the kids will eat them more readily then but otherwise this soup was good.
