This time of year, we’re always looking for warm comfort foods that are somehow also detox appropriate. To aid us in this endeavor, we asked Amy Davis, trainer to Selena Gomez, if she had any such undercover-healthy recipes she could share. She indulged us by showing us how to make this winter-perfect Mexican chicken soup, which checks all of our boxes—it’s easy to make, packed full of vegetables and other good-for-you foods and it tastes like you should feel guilty about curling up with a bowl (or 3). Watch the video below to see how it’s done and find out why Selena swears by this decadent detox dish.
