I absolutely love Mexican/Southwestern food and flavors! Ask my fiance, most weeks we eat beef chili, turkey chili, chicken tacos, beef tacos, chicken tortilla soup, fajitas…I tend to gravitate towards these flavors so we end up eating a lot it. We are trying to cut gluten and carbs out of our diet so this Tortilla-Less Chicken Tortilla Soup is a great option!
