Creamy Chicken Tortilla Soup
15 mins (prep 5, cooking 10)
10 ingredients

I had to write this down fast before I forgot how I came up with this. I got a tip from a can of refried beans to use it as a base for soups. I love tortilla soup but it can sometimes be loaded in calories. Using refried beans not only thickens the soup, but saves calories on any added cheese or tortillas used to do the same. Taking a few cans out of the pantry makes very quick, easy, and delicious soup. Check out my vegetarian version which is just as yummy. A great way to use up the crushed up tortilla chips at the bottom of the bag.
