Chicken, Spinach, and Potato Soup
This was a nice, light (but hearty) soup! It's not quite as heavy as a traditional thick & creamy potato soup, but it is still very satisfying without the caloric guilt. I did make a couple changes — I omitted the garbanzo beans and added carrots instead. I also omitted the parmesan cheese and added 1/4 cup, plus or minus, of 2% milk to thicken the stock slightly. Final result... a pretty tasty & delicate soup!

Best Tuna Casserole
Yum Yum! Simple and delish recipe however, I did make a few moderations: Instead of 2 cans of cream of mushroom, I used only 1 and added 1/4 milk + 1/4 alfredo sauce. I also used French Fried Onions instead of chips and spinkled with a thin layer of grated parmesan & mozzarella instead of cheddar.

Six Can Chicken Tortilla Soup
One word = DELISH! For a heartier, thicker soup... you can also add one (1) 10oz. can of cream of chicken and 1/2 cup of prepared/cooked rice. Feel free to use any kind of rice you'd like (i.e. plain white rice, yellow rice or even chicken flavored Rice A Roni). The rice definitely adds great texture and makes the soup more filling! Sprinkled with some Mexican shredded cheese and garnished with a few blue corn tortilla chips... and you've got yourself one hearty Mexican inspired meal!
