Creamy Tortilla Soup

    Yes! A while back when I started “health-i-fying” what we eat I found substitutes for my cream soups that were more healthy. For cram of chicken use 3 cups chicken broth, 1 cup of milk or fat-free half and half or both, 1/2 cup whole wheat flour and salt to taste. Mix all the ingredients in a saucepan. Whisk until smooth.and thickened over medium heat. Super easy, I’d usually make it ahead of time and freeze it, it looks weird out of the freezer, but worked awesome combined to recipes, especially slow cooker or crock pot ones, I wouldn’t even thaw it much for those. If my recipe didn’t have chicken in it, I’d add cannery shredded chicken to the above recipe. You can double it, then just add the amount you need to get the right consistency for the recipe, I’ll have to try this recipe, sounds delish 🙂

    Ya something like that, I’m not real exact, you can just thaw what you need and re-freeze the rest. I’ve frozen it in Tupperware or ziplocks, both are good 🙂
