Tortilla Soup

This is one of my go-to last-minute throw-together recipes.  I can easily make it with ingredients I usually have on-hand.  It's a great way to use up cooked, leftover chicken, and really warms the belly on a cold night. 

Tortilla Soup

2 cloves garlic
1 med. onion, chopped
1 Tbsp. olive oil
4 c. chicken broth
2 c. cooked, cut-up chicken
1 bunch cilantro
1 1/2 c. frozen (or canned) corn, thawed and drained
1 can black beans, rinsed & drained
1-2 can recipe cut diced tomatoes (I only used one.)
1/8 c. taco seasoning (1 pkg.)

jack or cheddar cheese, shredded
tortilla chips

1.  Heat oil in large pot. Saute garlic and onions in oil until soft.
2.  Add broth, tomatoes, corn, beans, taco seasoning and chicken.
3.  Simmer at a med. heat for around 20-30 min. Add cilantro and simmer a few more minutes.
4.  Serve garnished with crushed tortilla chips, cheese and cilantro.
