Delicious Chicken Tortilla Soup (Low-Fat)

Total Time

Once Fall turns to Winter, I love curling up with a hot bowl of soup and a good book with the snow falling outside. This soup is a twist on the traditional chicken noodle but simple & easy. If you plan on stretching this beyond one meal, add the lime juice to your bowl rather than in the entire pot. Edited to add: I made this over the holidays and for spice, used a can of diced tomatoes with Southwest seasoning and a can of Rotel with cilantro and lime. Very spicy!

My boyfriend thought this was really great, and he's pretty hard to please. When I told him it was low calorie and low fat, he was very surprised. It was a little too bland for my taste. Next time will add some spice and seasonings.
