Whole30 & Paleo Chicken Tortilla Soup

Whole30 & Paleo Chicken Tortilla Soup


Chicken Tortilla Soup to kick off the first day of Fall. Happy Fall, y’all! Even though it doesn’t feel remotely close to Fall in Texas, that isn’t keeping me from enjoying this healthy, EASY, and satisfying soup, ft. the only bone broth I swear by Bonafide Provisions. I just can’t get enough of their broth and I love their story behind the company.

Have a happy Monday!
