I was looking at my soup options in the supermarket the other day - in fact, there was quite a limited selection - and I decided to pick up Muir Glen Organic Chicken Tortilla Soup, in addition to a few others. I was curious to see whether a canned "organic" soup would be any different from the rest of canned soups around.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 cup (254 grams)
Calories: 130
Total Fat: 1.5 grams, 3%
Saturated Fat: 0.5 grams, 2%
Sodium: 790 mg, 33%
Carbohydrates: 22 grams
Fiber: 3 grams, 12%
Sugar: 3 grams
Protein: 7 grams

I heated up the contents of the can in a small pot on the stove, and when I had my first spoonful, all I could say was, Holy jumping jelly beans this soup is delicious!! It's chock full of rice, corn and black beans - not so much the chicken, but I honestly didn't mind, because the soup is so flavorful. There's also a spicy kick to it that adds some extra oomph. The soup was so good I went back for another helping - the can I bought (411 grams) provides 2 servings.

Each cup of Muir Glen Organic Chicken Tortilla Soup provides 130 calories from 1.5 grams of fat, 0.5 grams of which is saturated (3% and 2% of the daily value), 790 mg of sodium (33% of the DV), 3 grams of fiber and sugars plus 7 grams of protein.

The ingredients list is organic and all natural, starting with water, tomatoes and cooked chicken meat. Other than it being a bit high in sodium, I'm a happy camper when it comes to Muir Glen Organic Chicken Tortilla Soup.

I purchased a can for $2.50, and there was a sticker on it for $1.00 off 2 cans, so my final price was $2.00. I'm sure glad I bought 2 cans of this because it's really so delicious, and I intend on buying this again.
