Quick and Easy Spicy Tortilla Soup

I found this recipe here.
I didn't change much...

1 green pepper
1 medium sweet onion
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced (you won't need all of it unless you like your soup ON FIRE!)
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
salt and pepper
4 cups chicken broth
1 can can diced Mexican style tomatoes (I used these...cause they are so awesome)
1 cup frozen sweet corn, thawed.
1/4 cup..or so of chopped up fresh cilantro
1 chicken breast, diced
Tortilla chips, for topping
sour cream, for topping
Monterey Jack, shredded, for topping
few slices of avocado

  1. In a large pot heat the oil on medium heat and saute the onions. Add bell pepper, jalapenos (I added two or 3 thin slices...diced.), salt and pepper. Cook until the onions become translucent. Add the cumin and stir until fragrant.
  2. Add Chicken. Cook for a few minutes.
  3. Add chopped cilantro and chicken broth, tomatoes and corn.
  4. Cook for about 15 minutes (until chicken is cooked through)
  5. Add salt to taste

Pour into bowl

Crush a handful of tortilla chips on top of soup. Sprinkle cheese, dollop sour cream, squeeze lime and throw a couple slices of avocado on top (We forgot the avocado on ours! But added a spoonful of pico de gallo!)


We served ours with an amazing Steak Cobb Salad!
