This came out really good, thought I would share it with you. You could modify it if you want, I like mine spicy so I added more of each. I froze some and had it this week, it was hot this time around! Next time I'll stop adding the chili powder.
2 TBS oil
1/4 onion chopped fine
2 sm. stalks celery chopped fine
2 chicken breasts chopped fine
1 can Ro-Tell tomatoes and green chilies
2 tbs cumin
1 tbs garlic powder
1 tbs chili powder
3 cans chicken broth
1 1/2 TBS - ThickenThin No starch, or a little corn starch - either is optional, you don't have to thicken it.
How To Prepare:
Add oil to skillet or pot and saute onion, celery, chicken.
Add chicken broth, Ro-Tell tomatoes ( I used a hand blender to almost dissolve mine) add spices. Cook on medium heat for 30-45 minutes.
You can tweak the flavor some according to taste. I like it spicy so I added more of this and that. Or add salt if you think it needs it. I didn't use any and I'm a salt person, it didn't need it in my opinion.
1 LC tortilla as garnish
Using a pizza cutter, cut thin strips of a LC tortilla, bake until crisp at 400. I almost burned mine so watch them.
ThickenThin is a starch made from vegetables. 1 tsp = 2.3 carbs so you're adding 11-12 carbs for the whole pot of soup, divided up your not getting many. I bought mine at Netricion. It's only the second time I used it. Just added a little water in a bowl to make it creamy, then add a little at a time until its the consistency you want. I made mine a little thick, more of a creamy texture.
One LC tortilla had 4 net carbs and was garnish for 3 bowls.
