Chicken Enchilada Soup

Here’s a quick soup for you folks!

Sometimes I feel like I take chicken for granted since we eat it so often.

Today I’d like to take a quick look at its benefits to appreciate the delicious nutrition of chicken.

I’m sure we all know it’s packed with protein with less fat.

It’s also a great source of Vitamin D for calcium absorption and bone health, Vitamin A for eyesight and our immune system, and iron for blood circulation.

Now we have more reasons to love and eat chicken!

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 12 corn tortillas
  • 1 10 oz can green enchilada sauce
  • 1 10 oz can red enchilada sauce
