Chicken (or Meatless) Tortilla Soup

Make a gorgeous, healthy family meal in 15 minutes? Yes, it is very possible! This recipe is unbelievably quick, delicious, and full of protein and fiber.  It’s a good recipe for the kids to help prepare, and they can embellish their own bowls of soup at the table to their tastes with the optional toppings listed below.  Vegetarians can leave out the chicken altogether or use diced extra-firm tofu instead.  For a spicier touch, use hot enchilada sauce and serve the soup with hot pepper sauce, such as Tabasco. Serve it with celery sticks with blue cheese dressing.

Tip: To make your own seasoned chicken, cut one boneless, skinless chicken breast half (1/3-1/2 lb.) into bite-sized pieces and season the pieces with salt, pepper and garlic powder.  Heat 1 Tbsp. olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat and cook the chicken flipping often, until it is no longer pink inside, about 5-7 minutes total.  Remove it from the heat and add it to the soup.
