Create a Thursday Moment!

The holidays are crazy. It seems like every weekend there is another event to attend or gifts to wrap. It’s hard to find time to even sit down for a nice family meal! So I was thrilled when Simply Organic reached out to me asking how I would use Thursdays to escape the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. Because this meant I got to share with you my (brilliant) idea for a new food-centric day of the week! We’ve all heard of Taco Tuesday, right? Well I am proposing another day be devoted to delicious Mexican cuisine: Tortilla Soup Thursday! I don’t know if it will catch on but I am hoping it will. This delectable soup is a great example of using simple, healthy ingredients to create a nourishing meal in minutes. Your family will love this soup, and you will too… healthy food in 15 minutes?

How To Make This Meal in 15 Minutes:

To make this meal super time efficient I place chicken broth and Simply Organic Chili Powder on the cooktop to heat. The chili powder lends a rich smoky flavor to the broth. While broth heats I prepare the corn, avocado and cheese, then I place all the ingredients in a bowl and pour the broth over the top! A garnish of tortilla chips and a sprig of cilantro completes the meal!

The Recipe: 15 Minute Chicken Tortilla Soup!

What you will need: Chili Powder gives this soup a rich, flavorful base. I use Simply Organic Chili Powder. If you would like to learn to make your own broth, click! Oaxaca cheese is a Mexican cheese (similar in texture to mozzarella) and can usually be found in the deli section of your grocery store. It’s fabulous for quesadillas too! I use organic rotisserie or leftover roasted chicken in this soup. If you use 100% corn tortilla chips this meal is gluten free.
