Good morning!
Even though this post was done on Thursday it is from Wednesday. We had this for dinner the other day and it was a big hit. I had gotten the recipe from online. It makes a lot but my family ate it all with no leftovers!

Chicken Tortilla soup

1 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
3 cans crushed tomatoes
5 cans condensed chicken broth
3 cups water
1 bag frozen corn thawed
1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chile peppers
1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained (I did NOT add these because of allergies)
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 cups of chopped up chicken (boneless, skinless)

crushed tortilla chips
sliced avocado
shredded Monterey Jack cheese
chopped green onions

In a medium stock pot, heat oil over medium heat. Saute onion and garlic in oil until soft. Stir in chili powder, oregano, tomatoes, broth, and water. Bring to a boil, and simmer for 5 to 10 minutes.
Stir in corn, chiles,( beans), cilantro, and chicken. Simmer for 10 minutes.
Ladle soup into individual serving bowls, and top with crushed tortilla chips, avocado slices, cheese, and chopped green onion.
