Mexican Chicken Soup

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Brooke the Cook in

Spicy chicken soup topped with cilantro - super easy to throw together! Don't omit that cilantro, it really 'makes' this soup! Tortilla chips make a nice side to this... or even crush a few and top soup before serving. WW points w/out optional ingredients = 4/serving

Delicious! I added in an onion and crushed chili flakes with the garlic and i also added in 1 tablespoon of chili powder, sprinkled with green onions but omitted the cilantro and left out the mozza cheese, thanks for sharing Brooke!
