  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 0 3/4 cup fresh yellow onion, chopped
  • 0 1/2 cup fresh red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 tsp fresh garlic
  • 1 1/4 cup canned original diced tomatoes, with green chilies
  • 3 cup chicken broth
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder, 036800328198, organic
  • 0 1/2 tsp ground cumin, 036800328228, organic
  • 0 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 1/2 lb raw chicken breast, skinless, boneless
  • 3 oz cream cheese
  • 1 cup fresh zucchini, with skin, chopped
  • 2 bag Atkins Nacho Cheese Protein Chips


  1. Heat a large sauce pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add olive oil and sauté chopped onions for 3 minutes, until becoming translucent. Add chopped red bell pepper and sauté for another 2 minutes. Sprinkle onion and pepper with chili powder, minced or pressed garlic, smoked paprika and cumin, mixing and cooking until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  2. Remove from heat and stir in canned diced tomatoes with green chilis. Layer chicken breasts on the bottom of the pot and pour the broth in to cover chicken. Place over high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer, cover and poach the chicken until fully cooked (internal temperature of 165°F), 15-20 minutes.
  3. Remove cooked chicken to a cutting board. Whisk the cream cheese into the broth until fully incorporated. Add cubed zucchini, cover and cook over medium heat until zucchini is tender, about 5 minutes.
  4. Cut chicken into bite size pieces and return to soup. Serve while warm, topped with Atkins Nacho Cheese Protein Chips and any other toppings as desired. Each serving is just shy of 1 ½ cups soup topped with 13 g chips.

Topping this soup is a great way to add a personal touch.
