clean chicken tortilla soup



I just had to share our dinner with you last night.  I made a Clean Chicken Tortilla Soup.  We added brown rice to make it stretch and oh my!  We are loving our newly adapted lifestyle of clean eating thanks to the Arbonne 28 Day Detox Boot Camp. The evening meals are so amazing.  You wouldn’t know you were on a Detox plan.  Clean eating is really the way to go.  Last nights menu called for Chicken Tortilla Soup so I cruised Pinterest and picked up some ideas and then put a little Green Acres love in it.  Boy it was amazing, I will say “slap your Mama good”, sorry Mimi I couldn’t help myself.

Clean Chicken Tortilla Soup

1lb Organic Free Range Chicken

32 oz. organic Chicken Broth

1 can Organic Diced tomatoes with juice

1 can black beans, rinsed and drained

1 can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained

2 tsp. cumin

2 garlic cloves crushed

1 tsp. onion powder

1 cup fresh salsa (no vinegar)

1 cup cooked brown rice

fresh spinach – about 2 handfuls


Rinse chicken add to crockpot.  Combine broth, tomatoes, beans and spices.  Pour over chicken.  Add Salsa.  Cook on high 5 hours or low 7-8.  Shred chicken when done cooking.  Add cooked brown rice and spinach.  Let set in crockpot for 20 min.  Serve with Guacamole on top.
