Chicken Tortilla Soup for Dieters

“My boss gave me this recipe when she was going to Weight Watchers. I tried it and was impressed with how easy it is to make and the great flavor. If you follow this recipe exactly this is only 3 points per serving. I myself never follow the serving and always tend to add more tortillas and chicken and cheese!”
