Number of serving: 4
2 - 3 chicken breasts

1 bag full cooked and shelled shrimp

1 orange bell pepper, sliced

1 yellow bell pepper, sliced

1/2 green bell pepper, sliced

1 small yellow onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 32 oz chicken broth (homemade or boxed)

2 tomatoes, diced (1 can will do)

ground pepper

2 teaspoons chili powder

1/2 teaspoon paprika

-1/4 fresh thyme (dried will work too)

1 teaspoon parsley

1 bag frozen cauliflower (fresh will work)


  • Start with a frying pan. Saute onions and peppers in a little Olive Oil. Saute until peppers and onions are tender.
    Dump them into a soup pot. In the same frying pan add raw chicken. Brown and cook chicken until they are no longer pink inside. Add them to the soup pot. Add chicken broth and tomatoes and all the seasonings. Bring to a boil.
  • While waiting for the soup to boil, add cauliflower to the food processor. If frozen, thaw the cauliflower half way. Add to the processor and process until the cauliflower resembles rice.
    If you are using fresh cauliflower add directly to the processor and pulse. Set aside!
  • Once the soup is boiling add the shrimp and cauliflower rice. Let boil for just 5 minutes or us. Just enough to warm the shrimp. IF you are using raw shrimp you will want to add the shrimp and boil for 15 - 20 minutes.
  • You can add cod to this and it would be delicious. If you are into sausage --- add it!
