I’ve been working on making this my double up and meal prep week.
One of the things I have prepped in this savory soup that is perfect for a cold day.
Feeds 4 + some for storing adjust according to your family size
Let’s Start with what you will need.
1lb bag of Cheese Tortellini( I used Frozen this time)
1/4 cup of elbo macaroni (optional)
1 medium sized onion chopped (red if you have one, but I didnt this time and used white)
2 celery stock pieces choppped
2 cloves of garlic
1 pint of diced tomato or 4 tomatoes diced
2 box of chicken broth
1 whole Rotisserie chicken ( I literally by the already cooked ones to save me time and money)
1/4 cup chopped carrot stixx
1/2 cup of red,yellow, orange sweet bell pepper mini
2 heaping table spoons of Italian seasoning
1/4 cup of fresh cilantro chopped
1/2 Avacodo ( for topping)
1 tbs of chilli powder ( clean looking ingredients meaning you can read and understand what your eating)
1tbs of taco seasoing ( clean looking ingredients avoid msg)
1 can of tomato soup
1 tbs of black pepper
Mexican Cheese blend ( for topping)
2 cups of water
1/2 cup of orange juice
Combine all liquid incredients and HALF of each spice and herb in a pot
let that cook for 1 hour on low
Pull the breast meat and one leg meat off the chicken, throw it in the pot.
* If you threw the whole chicken in the freezer like I did this particular day just be sure to throw it in the fridge the night before and then put it in your soup as soon as you throw the herbs n such in.
The other part I pull off and use for other meals such as chicken salad or quesodillas, salad topping ( fry in a pan with a little oil peprika and lemon peper), etc
Put in your elbo macaroni and Tortellini
the last 20 min add in your chopped veggies and the rest of your herbs n spices, except the cilatro save that.
Serve with a toping of avacado and cheese
Put the rest in a freezer bag laying flat to save room
OR can that sucker up in a canning jars.
There you have it, you made supper and prepped for another night all in one pot.
