Fellow soupaholics,

The other day I was on my way home and I REALLY wanted tortilla soup for dinner. Well, there's no tortilla soup on JCC so I remembered I had Southwestern chicken and rice in the cabinet so I mixed that with low sodium fat free chicken broth and voila! I had my black bean chips with it, and salsa, too. yum.

Last night I was dying for soup again so I took a can of mexican style chopped tomatoes, the same cx broth and heated it up, pureed it and got my soup fix. It was filling and satisfying.

Wonder what else I can turn into soup...

love your idea of the tomatos and chicken broth, sounds good! Some have posted how they make potato soup out of the stuffed potato.

That sounds really good :)

I too am a soupaholic, especially when it's cold out.
I actually just posted a recipe on volumizing the corn chowder to make green curry soup and also awhile back (under recipes) I made the fajitas into a sort of tortilla soup- hope you like it!

I also posted a free veggie soup recipe under recipes (sometimes I make it instead of salad for the week) and if you search for tuscan soup on the site JC came up with a free one, too. It's tomato based and I liked it, but I prefer a chicken broth base. Weight Watchers has 3 soup recipes on their site- search for zero point soups. It's a freebie for us, too!

Some others have posted that they use the baked potato and mash it and add it to broth as well and it makes a great soup. I have yet to try it, but I bet it's awesome!

I've been playing around into making a parmesan broth for the ravioli and making a soup, but I've not had success. I bet the ravioli would make a good soup, just haven't figured out a way yet!
