Chicken Salsa Soup With Tostitos and Mozzarella Cheese!

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 30 mins

This a quick meal that is sure to please! 45 minutes from start to finish. A spicy soup with chicken, salsa, and veggies topped with tostitos and a pile of mozza cheese - yum! You can make it as mild or as hot as you like. By omitting the cheese, this dish can be virtually fat free depending on your chicken broth/stock. You can also substitute the chicken for tofu and the chicken stock for vegetable stock and create a vegetarian dish. Be sure to use firm/extra firm tofu for this version. I combined chicken cooking time with prep time.

I have made this several times, and when I do everybody loves it and wants the recipe. I cook it with boned chicken for more flavor. I remove meat from bone when cooked. I leave broth to cool and remove fat. I then make my soup. I also use about 1/4 cup of rice.
