Chicken Tortilla Soup for Dieters

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Jeanette G

My boss gave me this recipe when she was going to Weight Watchers. I tried it and was impressed with how easy it is to make and the great flavor. If you follow this recipe exactly this is only 3 points per serving. I myself never follow the serving and always tend to add more tortillas and chicken and cheese!

Oh, so enjoyable!! I used tomato passata instead of tomato sauce as that's what I happened to have on hand; 300 g of chicken, which was plenty indeed, and probably double the avocado called for. It was still not bad calorie-wise, and simply immensly delicious! Will definitely go into the rotation - thank you so much for sharing!
