Best Ever Chicken Tortilla Soup

Grain and gluten free recipe for Chicken Tortilla Soup

I set out to create a mouth-watering tortilla soup, with zero grains, legumes or dairy.

I used to love a piping hot bowl of Chicken Tortilla Soup, complete with beans, something creamy in the base and a sprinkle of fried tortilla strips on top. Of course that was before I started to watch what I ate. Since then I’ve cut out grains, gluten, legumes and dairy — all main ingredients in Chicken Tortilla Soup– but I’ve missed those south-of-the-border flavors.

So here’s my rendition of Chicken Tortilla Soup, albeit without any actual tortillas! The addition of cauliflower rice nicely replaces tortilla strips, and the veggies and chicken are bursting with that awesome south-of-the-border flavor. Enjoy!
