Candice & Calabrese Day 13: 21 Day Fix Mexican Chicken Tortilla Soup

Hello again everyone!  If you are new to my blog, this 'Candice & Calabrese' is a section of my blog that takes me through Autumn Calabrese's cookbook, Fixate.  All recipes are 21 Day Fix approved, and, so far, are incredibly delicious.  Each day, I review a recipe, and let you know what it was like to make it; how easy the prep was, any tips that helped me out, and, of course, how tasty it was!

Today, I had the pleasure of making this little beauty.  I LOVE tortilla soup.  Unfortunately, a soup that can actually be really healthy can often get bogged down with loads of sodium, and obviously lots of additions like, cheese, sour cream, rice, etc.

I loved Autumn's recipe because it was so unique.  I've never made a tortilla soup that calls for carrots, but honestly, I appreciated the addition! As with any soup that requires veggies and a meat, expect that most of your prep work will be lots of chopping...something that I find actually enjoyable, but, I know that's not everyone's thing.  Also, something different that I will do when I make this a second time (because I definitely will!), is to add a little more spice to it (I like some kick).  Also, I don't think I will put it in a food processor at all as she calls for.  I'd prefer to have the chunks of veggies!

All in all, this recipe was given a thumbs up by both, my husband and I.  It's definitely a 'dinner' soup, which I love on a cool fall night!

Thanks for reading, friends!
