Every winter I go into a soup craze where I just want soup all the time. Zupas Chicken Tortilla Soup is one of my absolute favorites and after making nearly 10 different recipes I combined a few different recipes to make this one, which is the first one that I actually like just as much.

Ingredients:

1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
2 chicken breasts, cubed
2 14.5-oz cans of chicken broth
1 tsp cumin
1 11-oz can of corn with red and green bell peppers
1 10-oz can of black beans
1 10-oz can of green enchilada sauce
1 cup salsa
1 Tablespoon chopped cilantro
2 Tablespoons lime juice
1/2 cup fiesta blend cheese

Directions:

In a large sauce pan, cook the chicken and olive oil on medium heat until it is browned. Add the broth and cumin, stir in corn, enchilada sauce, salsa, cilantro, and lime juice. Add cheese right before serving.

Top with extra cheese, sour cream, avocados and tortilla strips.
