Get great recipes and save time. (Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe)

                              Easy Meals. Happy Family.

I found the perfect tool to help me eat healthy and save time. eMeals offers a great service where they email you a menu for the week. All you have to do is provide the store which you usually grocery shop at and they will customize your menus to that store. You have the option of purchasing only one meal a day or all three and they will send you the menus weekly. I went grocery shopping at the beginning of the week and I took my menu with me. They have it set up so that one page has the recipes and another page will have all of the ingredients and the prices they are at the store you chose. The second page helped out a lot because we are on a budget and I was able to see how much everything it that weeks menu would cost me. I made one of the recipes last night and I am in love. It was chicken tortilla soup and it was so yummy that I had to blog about it.

Here is the recipe for this great soup:
1 c each diced carrot, celery & onion (2 T oil)
(1 t minced garlic, ⅛ t salt, ¼ t pepper)
4 cans chicken broth
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can diced tomatoes w/ chilies
1 packet taco seasoning
1.5 lbs chicken breasts, cooked & diced
8-10 corn tortillas, cut into thin strips
12 oz Monterey jack cheese, divided
1 c milk
2 avocados
1 bag tortilla chips

Sauté carrots, onions, and celery in oil until tender. Add garlic,
salt and pepper. Add chicken broth; bring to a boil. Add tomatoes,
tomatoes w/ chilies, taco seasoning, and chicken. Cut tortillas into
small pieces; add to broth. Let boil 20 min or until tortillas are
thoroughly incorporated into soup stirring occasionally to keep from
sticking. Reduce heat; add 8 oz cheese. Simmer 10 min. Add
milk; simmer another 10 min. Garnish with extra cheese and
crushed tortilla chips.
Slice avocados and use to garnish soup. Serve with extra
tortilla chips on the side.
