This is my take on chicken tortilla soup. Low fat but still very filling. Hope you like it!

Delicious! I started to make this last night for today and realised I didn't have corn. So I finished cooking it leaving out the corn, lime, fresh coriander and garnishes. Today while I was in town I purchased corn, added it to the soup tonight and then finished the recipe as written. The flavours are delicious and it was so easy to make. Thank you Cat Berner

  4. Just before serving, stir in the lime juice and cilantro. Top with any or all of the garnishes.
