I have wanted a Vitamix for a very long time (read how I got one here) and originally my plan was to just blend up my Shakeology and make smoothies for my kids.  I knew it could do all sorts of amazing things but I didn’t think I’d even try that stuff but I was wrong.  It took me less than 2 weeks and I was ready to see what all this amazing appliance could do for me.

At lunch time today I was about to have my normal (boring) salad that I have almost every single day.  I pulled out the recipe book for my Vitamix instead.  I decided I’d make a soup but I didn’t have all the ingredients for one in the book so I created my own recipe.

21 Day Fix Approved:Mexican Soup

  • 4 cups of chicken broth
  • 2 roma tomatoes
  • 1 cup carrots
  • 1 stalk of celery
  • 1/4 of an onion
  • 1/2 cup cabbage
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 can chick peas
  • 1 can of Rotel
  • 1 pound of cooked chicken

I put the first 8 ingredients in my Vitamix, set it to soup setting and turned it on.  It blended for about 5 minutes and worked it’s magic. When it was done, out came a green puree (that was already warm!) that I poured into a bowl, leaving 1 cup of puree behind. I added the remaining ingredients and pulsed them until they were chopped but not pureed.  I added it to the bowl, stirred it together and at it up! It’s not the prettiest thing to look at but it was tasty!

Optional Add Ins: 

These are things I would have added but didn’t have on hand.

  • red or yellow pepper
  • cilantro
  • sour cream or greek yogurt
  • tortilla chips
  • corn
  • garlic

If you’re following the 21 Day Fix: 1 Red, 1 Green, 1 yellow per 1 1/2 cups serving.
