Ingredients: 3 cups fat-free chicken broth 1 1/4 cups finely chopped celery 1/2 cup diced sweet yellow onion 3 cups green enchilada sauce One 15-oz. can pure pumpkin 10 oz. cooked boneless skinless lean chicken breast, chopped or shredded 1 cup frozen white (or yellow) corn Optional: dash hot sauce, or more to taste Optional toppings: shredded fat-free cheddar cheese, crushed baked tortilla chips
Directions: In a large pot, bring broth to a low boil on the stove. Add celery and onion, and simmer for about 5 minutes, until slightly tender.
Stir in enchilada sauce and pumpkin. Once soup returns to a low boil, add chicken and corn, and mix well. Cook for an additional 3 - 5 minutes, until soup is heated throughout.
Add a dash or more hot sauce. (Or not. It's your soup.) Serve and, if you like, top with shredded cheese and/or crushed chips.

Wowowow! Wonton Soup

This soup is so good, you may become addicted to it. No worries -- there are worse things to become obsessed with...
For Wontons 9 oz. raw lean ground turkey 2 tsp. reduced-sodium/lite soy sauce 2 tsp. dried minced onion 1/2 tsp. garlic powder 1/8 tsp. black pepper 16 small square wonton wrappers (often stocked near the tofu in the fridge section of the market)
For Soup 6 cups fat-free chicken broth 2 cups dry broccoli cole slaw 1/3 cup canned bamboo shoots, drained 1/2 cup canned straw mushrooms, drained and roughly chopped 1 tsp. chopped fresh ginger 1 tsp. chopped garlic 1/2 cup chopped scallions
Directions: To make the wonton filling, combine all wonton ingredients except the wrappers in a medium bowl. Mix by hand until evenly combined. Set aside (and, duh, wash your hands).
In a large pot, combine all soup ingredients except scallions. Bring to a boil on the stove. Reduce heat to low and allow soup to simmer for 10 minutes.
Lay three wonton wrappers flat on a clean, dry surface. Scoop a spoonful (about 2 tsp.) of filling into the center of each wrapper. Moisten all wrapper edges by dabbing with water. Fold the bottom left corner of each wrapper to meet the top right corner, forming a triangle and enclosing the filling. Press firmly on the edges to seal. Set aside, and repeat with remaining wrappers and filling.
Stir scallions into the simmering soup. One at a time, carefully add wontons. Make sure they're submerged, but don't stir. Simmer for 5 minutes, adjusting temperature if soup begins to boil, until wonton centers are firm. (Don't worry if the wontons fall apart a little. They'll still taste delicious!)
Carefully serve up wontons and broth. Slurp 'n chew, people!
