    1. Southwestern Chicken Soup

      1 C chopped onion
      3 cloves minced garlic
      6 C low sodium chicken broth
      1/4 C uncooked white rice
      1 tsp cumin
      1 can beans of your choice, rinsed & drained (sometimes I use corn instead)
      3 C chopped cooked rotisserie chicken
      1/2 C chopped cilantro
      1/2 tsp black pepper
      1/4 tsp salt
      1 C chopped tomato (you can use canned)
      3/4 C (about 1 medium size) chopped avocado
      1 tsp fresh squeezed lime juice
      6 lime wedges

      Heat a large saute pan over med/high heat. Cover with cooking spray. Add onion & garlic and saute 3 minutes.
      Add broth, rice, cumin and beans/corn. Bring to a boil.

      Reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes. Stir in chicken, cilantro, peeper & salt. Simmer 5 minutes.

      Remove from heat and stir in tomato, avocado and lime juice.

      Serve with lime wedges and tortilla chips.

        It looks complicated but it’s not at all, especially when you use whatever seafood you can get your hands on. Frozen fish works great in this. TJs does a seafood blend. Also, use fennel, it makes it extra special. I replace the clam juice and chicken broth with a fish broth that Whole Foods carries in the freezer section. I’ve used red and white wine and they’re both fantastic.

        And it's good for you!
