Diabetic Recipes - Mexican

Author: Nancy Hughes
Source: Quick and Easy Low-Carb Cooking

Easy Mexican Soup


1 boil-in-bag rice packet
2 (14 oz) cans low-fat reduced sodium chicken broth
8 oz frozen cooked cubed chicken breast meat
1 (10.5 oz) can tomatoes with green chilies, Mexican-style, drained
1/4 c chopped cilantro leaves
1/2 medium avocado, diced
1-2 medium limes, cut in wedges


In a medium saucepot, cook rice according to directions on package, omitting any salt or fats. When cooked, place rice in a separate bowl and set aside. Discard water for rice and add chicken broth to saucepot. Bring to a boil, add frozen chicken, and return just to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 2 minutes to heat chicken thoroughly. To serve, place 1/2 cup rice in the bottom of 4 individual shallow soup bowls, spoon 3/4 cup chicken around the mound of rice, top rice with 2 tablespoons tomatoes and 1 tablespoon cilantro, and sprinkle 2 tablespoons avocado around sides. Squeeze lime over all.

Makes 4 Servings.
