And the Answer is....

Tortilla soups vary greatly in ingredients and nutritional values, but Baja Fresh did a good job with this one. One serving, with chicken added, comes to 320 calories, 14 grams of fat (4 grams saturated fat), and zero trans fats (which everyone should try to avoid completely). Despite using charbroiled chicken instead of fried, the Chipotle Glazed Chicken Salad is not diet-friendly choice. This salad contains 700 calories, more than twice the fat (31 grams), 7 grams of saturated fat, and 1 gram of trans fat. Grab the soup instead and round out your meal with Baja's side salad, topped with Salsa Verde instead of dressing. Together, you'll consume a total of 401 calories, 17 grams of fat, and a filling 8 grams of fiber and 20 grams of protein. Excelente!
