Tasty Tuesday #3

By 1:00 AM

Hey guys! I'm back again with another Tasty Tuesday!
 
I do alter my recipes to fit my own tastes, so please also feel free to refer back to the original recipe at the bottom of the post to see what I may have eliminated.
 
Most of my recipes are Weight Watcher friendly, but don't let that scare you away. They are actually really good. I've also found some great websites like Skinny Kitchen and Skinny Taste that I use a lot too. Most of my recipes have some kick to them, so if you are not a big spicy person, adjust the spices to better fit your tastes. OH. And all of the meals I cook are really easy to prepare. I'm not big on difficult meals.
 
Today I am featuring:
 
Chicken Enchilada Soup
 

Ingredients:

-1 cup onion, chopped
-1 cup red bell pepper, chopped
-1lb. chicken, diced
-1 can red enchilada sauce
-1/2 cup frozen corn
-1 cup celery, chopped
-1/2 tbsp. minced garlic
-2 14.5 oz. cans of reduced sodium chicken broth
-1 can tomatoes, chopped

Directions:

1) Add veggies and garlic to microwaveable bowl and microwave for 3 minutes.
2) In a large soup pot, add veggies, chicken, chicken broth, enchilada sauce, tomatoes, and corn. Mix well and bring to a boil.
3) cover and turn to simmer and cook for 30 minutes.
4) Ladle almost 2 cups in each bowl. Top with cheese, sour cream.

Notes:

*I used shredded chicken this time around, as I had bought some from a nearby BBQ place. If you use cooked chicken instead of raw, make sure you wait to add chicken until right before the soup is finished.

*This recipe can be done in the crock pot as well. See instructions HERE.

*Soup can be served with salsa and tortilla chips if desired.

*The original recipe calls for black beans and scallions. However, I eliminated those, as I am not a fan.

Serving Size: almost 2 cups/bowl
Serves: 6
Cook Time:  45 minutes
WW Points+: 6

  4. This is one of my favorite recipes! It's a relatively new discovery for me. While I was in San Diego for work, a friend stayed at my apartment to pet sit for me. She knew I'd have a crazy long travel day and the last thing I'd want to do was cook when I got home, so she put this in the Crock Pot for me. Soooooo good.

    I'm loving this feature, too! You're inspiring me to try new recipes. :)
