Chicken Tortilla Soup

It's hard to go wrong with making up a soup recipe. There aren't a lot of rules to making soup. I was pleasantly surprised how well this one came together. We'll definitely be making it again, especially since I now believe that winter is never going to end this year!

Chicken Tortilla Soup

1/4 c oil
1 onion, chopped
1 t garlic, chopped

1/2 t cumin

1 t coriander

1 t salt
1 box chicken broth

2 small cans chopped green chilies

1 can white beans (pinto or garbanzo)

2-3 chicken breasts big handful of crushed tortilla chips
1 c corn

heat oil in soup pan.

cook onions until tender.
add garlic and spices and cook for 1 minute.

add broth and bring to a boil.

add chicken breasts.
simmer until chicken is cooked through.
remove chicken and shred into bite-sized pieces, then return to soup.

add beans, chilies, corn, and crushed chips.
serve once heated through and top with cheese, sour cream, avocado, cilantro, more chips.
