    FoodExplorer's Note:

    I usually make a nice Chicken Tortilla Soup recipe that I got from Taste of Home, but this particular night, I wanted something a little different. I had a couple containers of arugula in my refrigerator and wanted to see if I could use that in the soup recipe.....I did! This soup really is quite spicy, but I am approximating on all the spice and vegetable amounts. Please feel free to alter the spices and veggie content to your liking. As I have it right now, there remains a nice heat in my mouth after a couple bites but not so much so that I am feeling a need for bread or milk. ;) Note--you can definitely leave the chicken out to have just a vegetarian soup; the vegetables are the main appearance here, not the chicken! You could also very easily add tofu cubes to the soup instead of the chicken. If you try this, I do hope you enjoy it and find it as simple as I did to make.

    • 10 ounces rotel original diced tomatoes
    • 10 ounces rotel diced tomatoes with lime and cilantro
    • 12 1/2 ounces 98% fat free chicken breasts, chopped (you can use canned, but I would recommend emptying chicken into strainer first and rinsing thoroughl)
    • 3/4 cup frozen corn (again, if you use canned, please rinse well to get rid of that sodium!)

    Directions:

      Simmer for about 20 minutes, or until carrots are tender.
    3. 3
      Meanwhile, slice the tomato and onion into quarters.
    4. 4
      Broil the tomato and onion for five minutes (sprayed with nonstick spray or rubbed with 1/2 teaspoons oil, whichever you prefer) or until tender; puree the tomato and onion with the other can of Rotel tomatoes.
    5. 5
      When carrots are tender, add the 2nd can of chicken broth, the pureed tomato mixture, chicken, corn, and arugula.
