Yummy SOUP! :)
Ok, I cooked it! This soup is DELICIOUS! I love it! I baked some tortillas strips(using the Mission brand 2 for 1 WW point THIN corn tortillas-cut and sprayed with PAM) to top my soup and skipped the cheese and hot sauce. I find the green enchilada sauce spicy enough. :)

Extra-special thanks to Pam, who inspired us with her swap for Chili's Chicken Enchilada Soup. YOU ROCK, Pam, and so does this soup!
3 cups fat-free chicken broth
1 1/4 cups finely chopped celery
1/2 cup diced sweet yellow onion
3 cups green enchilada sauce
One 15-oz. can pure pumpkin
10 oz. cooked boneless skinless lean chicken breast, chopped or shredded
1 cup frozen white (or yellow) corn
Optional: dash hot sauce, or more to taste
Optional toppings: shredded fat-free cheddar cheese, crushed baked tortilla chips
In a large pot, bring broth to a low boil on the stove. Add celery and onion, and simmer for about 5 minutes, until slightly tender.
Stir in enchilada sauce and pumpkin. Once soup returns to a low boil, add chicken and corn, and mix well. Cook for an additional 3 - 5 minutes, until soup is heated throughout.
Add a dash or more hot sauce. (Or not. It's your soup.) Serve and, if you like, top with shredded cheese and/or crushed chips.

I just finished lunch and a few loads of laundry. I am going to bust out the Wii Fit in a second and play a couple of games and do some of my physical therapy home exercises. I am NOT enjoying all of the rain we have been having for OH, the past FEW weeks! I feel like the next time I see the sunshine I am going to RUN outside and never come home! lol Seriously, it's been awhile here! I was so excited about lunch that I really did not think about what I am making for dinner! lol Probably something easy! If you saw my shopping loot I really only picked up FRESH stuff- I tried to shop at home first and see what my pantry had for me to work with. Maybe a pasta dish tonight...we shall see!
Oh! Vitalicious is having a sale for Valentines day. So I treated myself to it! lol I love the muffin tops and I just finished my chocolate ones (I had some brownies) from my last order. DEALS HERE!
Have a great day everyone! BYE! :)
