Creamy Chicken Tortilla Soup
Cream Cheese ➡ Dairy-Free Cream Cheese
Tortilla Chips ➡ Grain-Free Tortilla Chips
By now you know soup is a favorite around here, even in the summer. This chicken tortilla soup is thick, creamy, and full of flavor. It’s also dairy/gluten/grain-free, and can be made in 30 minutes, so it’s the perfect weeknight meal!
2 cups Right Rice (I use original @rightrice)
1 Tbsp avocado oil
1 small white onion, chopped
1 can diced tomatoes, juice included
1 can diced green chiles
1 15 oz can organic black beans, rinsed
4 cups chicken bone broth (I use @kettleandfire)
2 limes, juiced
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 Tbsp chili powder
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
1 8 oz container dairy-free cream cheese (I use @kitehillfoods)
2 cups rotisserie chicken, shredded (or two chicken breasts cooked and shredded)
Salt and black pepper, to taste
Grain-free tortilla chips, crushed (I use @sietefoods sea salt)
