Chicken Black Bean soup with crunchy corn tortilla strips

It’s been quite a day at FC.. Started with running a 5K to save the boobies !!

Then off I went to my son’s soccer game. My Lil Kicker is 3 and has joined a neighborhood soccer camp. I am so proud of him !!

So when we got back home, We were tired.. Didn’t want to spend a lot of time cooking lunch and didn’t wanna eat out. We ate out two past nights and we are done with that.. for a while .. Well atleast till mommy wants to order take-out.

So I made the below simple yet flavorful soup with leftovers for lunch.. Served it with crunchy corn tortilla strips for an added element of texture and fun.. trust me it’s FUN for a 3 yr old and a 30 yr old (me).. 🙂

Enjoy !
