Señorita Panda’s Paleo Chicken Soup

You’ll never want your traditional (aka BORING) chicken soup after you have this hearty and zesty Mexican style chicken soup that is jam packed with flavor and nutrients.  The non-paleo version of the recipe also calls for 1 cup of fresh sweet corn and 2 cups of brown rice to give this soup even more texture.  The best part about flu season is being able to make big batches of this soup to soothe the soul and warm my appetite.  

Try serving wrapped in my paleo tortillas used in this recipe!
