Leftovers: Chicken Tortilla Soup

So you made shredded chicken tacos and they were freaking amazing. But you don't want to be stuck eating the same thing for the next 3 days. This recipe for chicken tortilla soup is super simple and will definitely shake things up.


2-3 cups of leftover shredded chicken
One 32 oz box of chicken broth
2 handfuls chopped cilantro
One squeezed lime
2 cans diced tomatos
1 can corn, drained
1 can black beans
3 tablespoons tomato paste
1/2 yellow onion
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp chile powder
2 tsp garlic powder

Put it all in a pot and simmer for 30 minutes. It's that easy!
For extra yumminess add shredded cheese and crispy tortilla strips.

(Found recipe on Pinterest but it originally came from this blog.  I bet she has tons more great recipes to check out)

Healthy Eats: Southwest Turkey Burger

1 pound ground turkey
1/3 cup black bean and corn salsa
1 egg
1 tomato, sliced
1 avocado, just the guts
1 lime, juiced
Optional garlic salt

In a medium bowl, combine the turkey, salsa and egg. Mix well. It should make about 4 patties.
Cook it up in a pan or griddle. Make sure to cook all the way through. Mix avocado, lime juice,  and a pinch of garlic salt. Top of burger with this guac and a tomato slice. Since I was avoiding hamburger buns it ended up being easier chopping up the tomato and putting in the guac.

So this week I went on the dreaded "diet." It's the Jillian Michaels 7-Day Kickstart your metabolism booklet that came with the workout program. It started of with plain greek yogurt with cinnamon and almonds. BLEH pretty gross. Then I saw turkey burgers on the menu and I figured it would just be equally sad. WRONG. It was so yummy! Of course I modified the recipe. I was supposed to have brussels sprouts with the burger. Sorry, not happening. I had some roasted zucchini instead.

Normally I just oversleep, or am too distracted by school, work or whatever to eat. Then I find myself starving and just eating something quick and not great for me (ahh taco hell). Actually taking the time to cook again hasn't been perfect but it's definitely been rewarding. I hope you enjoy the recipe.
