Tortilla Soup


Easy Chicken Tortilla Soup

2 tsps olive oil

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 small onion chopped

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp oregano

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp chili powder

1 cup water

4 cups chicken stock

1 tsp tomato paste

Shredded cooked chicken (I used a rotisserie chicken)

1 lime

1 cup cilantro


Sauté onion and garlic in olive oil on medium heat till soft. Next, add cumin, salt, and chili powder. Stir for one minute. Next, add chicken stock, water, and tomato paste, and chicken (I cut off some pieces from the rotisserie chicken and tore into small pieces) and bring up to a simmer for 6 minutes. Next, add cilantro, and squeeze all the juice from the one lime into the pot. Finally, serve over tortilla chips with a dollop of sour cream. YUM.

(Also, add avocado if you have it lying around!!)
