Whole30 & Paleo Spicy Turmeric Chicken Soup

This is my go to base soup recipe. It is so quick to come together, is filling and easy to modify based on your preferences. The Trader Joes Fire Roasted Tomatoes with Green Chilis adds the perfect spicy kick that almost resembles a 'tortilla soup' flavor. The turmeric gives this soup a lovely golden color and some wonderful anti inflammatory properties!
I love to change this recipe depending on what veggies I have in my fridge that need to be used up too! As you can see in the pictures I added a tomato that was looking like it was on its last leg. Try adding kale, cabbage, riced cauliflower, zucchini, or even diced sweet potatoes to change the flavor profile.
