This easy, paleo chicken tortilla soup is hearty and makes a great weeknight meal. Made with chicken thighs and a few pantry and fridge staples, this soup is budget friendly without skimping on flavor.
I keep the recipe grain free with a little help from my friends over at Siete Foods. This family owned company makes delicious grain-free and dairy-free products like tortillas, chips, and queso dip. I use their grain-free tortilla chips in this recipe and they are the absolute best.
Whats wrong with regular corn tortilla chips? Well, I mean inherently nothing. However, for some folks, corn can cause an inflammatory response in the body. For our family, we notice sinus congestion and bloat when we dabble with too much corn.
For postpartum people, removing inflammatory foods can help with healing, energy and recovery. Please don’t focus on restriction, but rather adding in plenty of delicious, nourishing and nutrient-dense foods.
This chicken tortilla soup is full of warming spices, without being too “spicy”, perfect for the postpartum period. Broths, rich cuts of meat, and well cooked veggies are ideal for postpartum digestion support, reducing inflammation, and healing the body after birth.
