Chicken Tortilla Soup with Corn and Spinach

Chicken Tortilla Soup with Corn and Spinach: Main Image
From: 12 Best Foods Cookbook

Quick Facts

Servings: 4
Baby spinach, frozen corn, store-bought roast chicken, and canned broth are healthy convenience foods. Combined, they make a soup with flavor that tastes like it took more than 15 minutes to make.

Ingredients

  • 2 tsp canola oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cups fat-free, reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup frozen or canned corn kernels
  • 4 cups lightly packed baby spinach (4 ounces)
  • 2 cups diced cooked chicken breast
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • juice of 1 lime
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped cilantro leaves
  • 1 oz unsalted tortilla chips

Directions

  • Heat the oil in a deep medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Sauté the onion until it is translucent.
  • Pour in the chicken broth. Add the corn and spinach. Reduce the heat to medium and cook until the corn is heated through and the spinach is bright green, 3 minutes. Mix in the chicken, salsa, and lime juice. Season the soup to taste with salt and pepper.
  • To serve, divide the soup among 4 deep bowls. Top each bowl with one quarter of the cilantro. Coarsely crush the tortilla chips and stir one quarter of them into each bowl. Serve immediately.
