Mexican Tortilla Soup with Roasted Chicken

Submitted by: JGOARING

Introduction

I modified this slightly from the version I got from "One Family One Meal" by adding the corn and beans -- makes it a bit more hearty - more of a full meal. Can serve topped with cheese, sour cream, diced avocados... whatever sounds good.

Preparation
divider
In a large stockpot over a medium-low flame, heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. Add the onions and sautÚ them until they are soft, about 10 minutes. Add the garlic, cumin, ╝ teaspoon salt, and a generous grinding of pepper, and sautÚ the mixture another minute.

Add the chicken broth, raise the flame to high, and bring it to a simmer. Add the shredded chicken, tomatoes, corn, black beans, lime juice, and cilantro. Season to taste with more salt and freshly ground pepper if needed. Remove the stockpot from the heat and cover.

Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium heat, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Add the tortilla strips and allow them to brown, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle them with salt.

To serve, ladle soup into bowls, top with cubed avocado, shredded cheese, and a handful of tortilla strips.
