Zest of Southwest

You have to try Zest of Southwest (pg 294).  We had it last night and loved it so much I made it again times six.

I did 32oz of chicken broth, maybe 2 1/2 cups of salsa (sort eyeball it), 6 frozen chicken breast tenderloins (i use these alot because they cook faster on my Forman with out drying out), 1 can of diced tomatoes, and lentils (just eyeballed these too).  Then I added water to stretch it a bit more. Two or three cups maybe. 

The lentils make this an E so it can be top with greek yogurt and low fast cheese.  The batch last night was really spicy.  This pot is much more balanced.  The kind of salsa used makes a big difference on spice.

I have some low carb wraps in the fridge that I hate, that I going to try baking into tortilla chips seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic, and a little parmesan cheese. Its so fun to try an find away to use what you've got.
