tortilla soup

for those of you who love soup and didnt catch this blog last october, this is the best soup & i am making it again for my discipleship class on wednesday night when they are headed to our house for our 1st offsite :-)

Tortilla Soup

what you need:
1 chopped onion
2 tbsp minced garlic
1 tbsp olive oil 
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1-28 oz can crushed tomatoes
1-10.5 oz can condensed chicken broth (low soduim/fat free)
1-1/4 cups water
1 cup whole corn kernels, cooked
1 cup white hominy (found in the corn aisle at the groc--bush's makes it)
1-4 oz can chopped green chile peppers
1-15 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained (they make a low sodium option which was just fine)
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro (i used 1/8 cup parsley instead last year...this year used my fresh cilantro)
2 chicken breasts cooked and shredded 

what to do...
1) heat oil in a stock pot and saute onion and garlic until onion is soft. 2) add in chili powder, oregano, tomatoes, broth, water and boil.  3) let simmer 5-10 minutes 4) add in corn, hominy, chiles, beans, cilantro, & chicken 5) simmer for 10 more minutes

if you know me you know i have a hearty dollop of daisy on top and a pretty decent handful of 2% sharp cheddar on this which only adds im sure to why i liked it so much at souper jenny.
