New Nutrition Tips:

  • To boost vegetables, add one 14 ounce can no salt added, fire-roasted tomatoes and add 1 cup fresh chopped bell peppers with soup mix.
  • To boost fruit, cut up 1 mango and add in final 5 minutes of cooking time.
  • To go Vegetarian, substitute for chicken 2 chopped chayote squash (the “seed” inside is edible) or 1 large diced sweet potato (microwave before cutting up for 5 minutes).
  • To give a Mediterranean twist, substitute 1 pound shrimp for chicken (see Inventive Variations suggestion on the package and website).
  • To cut sodium, substitute 1 can no salt added, roasted or diced tomatoes plus 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper for salsa, and top with fresh chopped cilantro, diced avocado or thin slices of fresh lime rather than tortilla chips (see Inventive Variations suggestion on the package and website). Prepare with low sodium broth. To cut sodium further, substitute water for half of the broth.

Inventive Variation:

Optional garnishes of chopped fresh cilantro, diced fresh avocado or thin slices of fresh lime make a festive presentation! Shrimp can be used as an addition instead of chicken for a delicious shrimp tortilla soup! Use 1 lb peeled and deveined or frozen baby shrimp. Add for last 5 minutes of cooking time.
