This is my response to craving mexican food but not being able to have the calories. This soup is very filling and low points- 6 1/2 for the whole recipe. You can control the heat of this recipe by the type of salsa you add- I usually use mild. Whatever heat you choose, it should be fresh salsa so the cilantro and other flavours are strong enough. If you really like it hot, add some chillies! I like to chop the ingredients fairly small for this recipe so you get an even flavour balance in every bite.
- Saute the chicken breasts for 3 minutes in a skillet with some non-fat cooking spray if needed.
- Add the onions, garlic and bell pepper and saute for 5 minutes.
- Transfer to a large saucepan and add the chicken stock, salsa, chicken stock cube, cayenne, cumin and corn.
- Simmer over a low heat for 30 minutes.
- Serve hot and enjoy!
