Nutrition Tips

To boost vegetables, add one 14 ounce can no salt added, fire-roasted tomatoes and add 1 cup fresh chopped bell peppers with soup mix.

To boost fruit, cut up 1 mango and add in final 5 minutes of cooking time.

To give a Mediterranean twist, substitute 1 pound shrimp for chicken.

To cut sodium, substitute 1 can no salt added, roasted or diced tomatoes plus 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper for salsa, and top with fresh chopped cilantro, diced avocado or thin slices of fresh lime rather than tortilla chips. Prepare with low sodium broth. To cut sodium further, substitute water for half of the broth.
