Somersizing Chicken Enchilada Soup

“This is a recipe from the website that other Somersizers have posted - said to be terrific and it fits within the guidelines. I saw many used a rotisserie chicken - bet that would add come nice flavor and speed to this dish! I enjoyed Somersizing last time around, and OBVIOUSLY need to get back to it!! ;) Enjoy!! Appears to be Level One meal - but there is an additional section for anyone wanting to make it a LEVEL TWO meal. **Original posting called for 3tbsp of tomato paste, but most reviewers semed to like the recipe changed this way, so I am posting as such.”
