I love it when I find a really delicious recipe that I can enjoy and share with others knowing I am not derailing a healthy eating plan.
Paul tells us in 2 Cor 6:12 that while all things are lawful, they are not all expedient or profitable for us.
We are all aware that while goodies are OK at times, if we live on junk food, we will not fuel this temple of the Holy Spirit to function at an optimum level. It’s sort of like what computer programmers tell us, “Garbage in, garbage out!”
Researchers tell us that eating more soup can result in a smaller waistline! This Texas Tortilla Soup recipe came to me as result of an intentional search after having it a restaurant. It was against policy to share recipes, but I did coax the waiter to tell me the ingredients. (I left a big tip!!) :-)
I began to research recipes on the internet, and cookbooks from the library that listed these same ingredients. Lo, and behold, I found this recipe in one of my personal cookbooks. Of course, I have tweaked it a bit. Sometimes I add a can of pinto beans to ramp up the protein, or maybe some corn, because, well, because I LIKE corn. I suspect you do this, too….making a recipe custom to YOUR tastes.
The basic soup is strong in the vege department-carrots, onions, and celery, along with Tex-Mex seasoning in a chicken broth base. Chicken cooked WITH the veges adds flavor and the protein that supports your blood sugar levels to keep you from feeling hungry later on.
Optional toppings of grated cheese, a dollop of sour cream, and some crispy tortilla strips take this soup over the top for me, but if you are calorie counting, this soup is great even without the extras.
I’m sharing once again the recipe for Texas Tortilla Soup. Find it here…
KNOW that this recipe is GOOD & good FOR you. It’s worth the revisiting.
I am Sue Murphy…and I am Confectionately Yours.
