Satisfied Tastebuds and some recipes!

It's Sunday so I think it is time that I add some recipes I concocted in the My Wild Crazy Life home this week.  One is a healthy recipe and two are heathy-er recipes!  Hope you enjoy as much as I did!

Allyson's Healthier Chicken Tortilla Soup

3 large chicken breasts
6 bullion cubes
1 large bunch of cilantro, stems cut off
1 family sized bag of frozen corn
2 cans of black beans or homemade black beans
1 pint of organic homemade tomato sauce
Fat free sour cream
low fat shredded cheese
fried tortilla for garnish (optional)
Feeds 6 supper sized portions

1.  Bring to boil a stew pot full of water with 6 bullion cubes in it.
2.  Add chicken breasts, salt and pepper and boil until chicken breasts are done (about 30 minutes)
3.  Remove chicken breasts and add in tomato sauce and  frozen corn, cook for 8 minutes
4.  While corn is cooking, shred the chicken into thin shreds as if you were making BBQ
5.  When corn is done, add in beans, chicken and break up all but a few sprigs of the cilantro into the soup
6. Boil for a few more minutes just long enough to cook the cilantro a bit.
7.  Ladle soup in a bow, and top with shredded cheese, sour cream, fried tortilla strips, and garnish with cilantro
