This is a great easy soup to make for lunch or dinner that has a ton of flavor. You can mix in the ingredients you like the most I used red peppers and ground chicken, and top it with cilantro, lime and avocado. If you like spicy you can add chili peppers and jalepeños on top. I made this in the instantpot (if you don't have one, get one!), but you can also use a crockpot or large stove pot.
Tip: If you brown your meat first in the bottom of the instant pot on "sauteé setting", it gives the soup more flavor.
Healthy tip: Eating food with spice helps increase circulation which can boost immunity, keep you warm, and support metabolism.
Serve your topping with the soup, feel free to add crumbles of tortilla chips for some crunch, delicious!
What a great time to boost immunity. I know everyone is spending more time at home right now, what a great way to research more recipes for cooking. Root vegetables stay good for a long time in the fridge. I typically use carrots, turnips, daikon, celery root. Herbs like rosemary, oregano, sage, and thyme have antimicrobial properties, as well as garlic. Use these herbs in soup to get extra immune protection against bad invaders.
Tip: Frozen chicken or fish or beef stays in the freezer good for at least 1-2 months. Keep these around when you want to use them for a meal, take them out and defrost.
Healthy Tip: Garlic is my favorite immune booster, it is a strong and powerful antimicrobial, have it daily to support your immune system!
