Pa-lee-Olé! Body SymmetryMD 's Paleo Chicken Tortilla Soup

Being on a prescription hCG or other medically supervised weight loss program doesn't have to mean your eating regimen has to be bland, bitter-tasting or just plain blah.

You can actually create quite a healthful (and low calorie!) fiesta in the comfort of your own home while sticking to your diet. Don't believe it? Taste it for yourself...

Check out this great new Paleo -friendly recipe from our Body SymmetryMD wellness squad!

Paleo Chicken Tortilla Soup

- 2 chicken breasts, skin removed and cut into ½ inch strips
- 1 28 oz. can of organic diced tomatoes
- 32 oz. of organic low sodium chicken broth
- 1 onion, diced
- 2 jalapenos, diced (with seeds removed)
- 2 cups shredded carrots
- 2 cups chopped celery.
- 1 bunch of cilantro, finely chopped
- 4 cloves of garlic, minced
- 2 tbsp. tomato paste
- 1 tsp. chili powder
- 1 tsp. cumin

- 1 to 2 cups of water
- 2 or 3 wedges of lime (optional)
- dash of olive oil
- sea salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste


1. In a crockpot or large dutch oven over med-high heat, place a dash of olive oil and about ¼ cup chicken broth. 
2. Add onions, garlic, jalapeno, sea salt & pepper and cook until soft, adding more broth as needed.
3. Add all remaining ingredients and enough water to fill the top of your pot. 
4. Cover and cook on low for about 2 hours, adjusting salt and pepper seasoning as needed.
5. Once the chicken is fully cooked, shred it into small pieces by using the back of a wooden spoon and pressing the cooked chicken against the side of the pot (you can also use a fork or tongs to break the chicken apart and into shreds you'd like).
6. Squeeze fresh lime (if desired), add a few sprigs of cilantro, serve and enjoy eating Paleo -friendly (makes 2 servings)!
