Chicken Tortilla Soup!

Winter has finally arrived in Chicago. This past weekend we had snow, sleet, ice, and cold. Definitely hibernation weather. Yesterday all I wanted to do was curl up on the couch with a good movie (or rather Downton Abbey) and enjoy a nice big bowl of warm soup.

Mmmm....pepper!
Luckily I had all the ingredients for a tortilla soup and even a jump start thanks to Pacific's soup starters. Flavoring a spicy soup couldn't be easier; just add chopped veggies, beans, chicken and simmer. Boom. Comfort food is served. I cheated on making tortilla strips and crunched up some tostadas instead, which worked deliciously.



There are currently five varieties of Pacific soup starters including beef, chicken, and vegetable flavors of the Vietnamese soup, Pho. Tom Yum and Tortilla soup are the additional ethnic soup starters. All of these organic broths are gluten free, dairy free, corn free, soy free, yeast free, and low fat. Great for just about every diet.




The fine print: Pacific Natural Foods kindly provided me samples of their soup starters to review. The opinions in this post are mine and do not necessarily represent Pacific Natural Foods.

Great giveaway! My favorite soup is tomato, although pumpkin is a close second.

Oh, yum, that looks delightful! Chicken tortilla soup is one of my faves.

You're right about it being hibernating weather in Chicago - I'd love to stay snuggled with my pup and my Kindle until April:)

My favorite soup is tomato, followed very close by vegetable. But really, I love just about any soups. Mostly because they fill me up, can cost little to make, and I can always extend leftovers. Really helps since hubby has been out of work for a year. Thanks for the giveaway!! Lori at icalledonjesus@aol.com.

It's hard to chose just one, but tortilla or pho are two of my favorite soups.

I just saw these at the store yesterday! I *almost* got the pho and then got distracted by the kids and didn't. Pho is awesome, but I also love a good vegetable soup too.

I love tomato bisque and broccoli cheese, but anything with corn is at the top of my list!
