Tortilla Soup

I was looking for the cafe rio tortilla soup recipe but couldn't find it so instead I just googled quick and easy tortilla soup and this is what I found. I've made it a few times and every time I make it I have to google it so I thought I would just post it here!

Quick, Easy -N- Fast Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe

1 (15 oz.) can whole-kernel corn, drained, or 2 C. frozen
2 (14.5 oz.) cans chicken broth
1 (15 oz.) can black beans
1 (14 oz.) can diced tomatoes, drained
1 (4 oz.) can diced green chilies
1 t. cumin
salt to taste
1 lb. boneless chicken breasts, cooked and chopped

Tortilla chips
Shredded Cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese for topping

Pour corn, broth, beans, tomatoes and chilies (I usually puree the tomatoes and chilies b/c I hate chunks) into large saucepan. Add cumin, salt and chicken. Simmer over medium heat until chicken is heated through. Serve with tortilla chips and shredded cheese.

For added spicy flavor, cook chicken in taco seasoning, or add a couple of teaspoons of taco seasoning or chili powder to the soup.

Makes 6 servings.
