ETLC: Chicken Mexican Beer Soup

Thursday, May 03, 2012

this is a soup I made earlier in the week for lunches



here is the link to my recipe for it in SparkRecipes

recipes.sparkpeople.com/
recipe-detail.asp?recipe=2
090563


here is how the nutrition breaks down



this recipe is what happens when I am feeling "creative" in the kitchen - I love my slow cooker, and I love experimenting with different things - the nice thing is my husband will eat almost anything once - and the good thing is that the more I experiment, the better I get at flavor combinations and I have fewer misses

at under 300 calories for a bowl (a large bowl), this is the perfect meal and easy to pair with a starch (I have eaten it with crushed saltines and also served it over mashed potatoes)

for some the beer may be questionable, you could switch it up with either a veggie or chicken broth, or even a fruit juice or non-alcoholic beer - the amber beer gives it a nice flavor which mellows through the meat as it cooks all day

    actually the sodium in what I made was probably much lower - I use no-salt beans (chili and black) and no-salt tomatoes where I can find them - also the corn is drained, and I think there is sodium in that water - It is frustrating sometimes when entering a recipe because they often don't have the "no-salt" versions and I don't always have time to enter new items

    Looks fabulous...the sodium is too high for my program. Wonder if I could lower the sodium mg? Hmmmm!

emoticon that you're sharing the recipes! We all benefit!!!
