Chicken Tortilla Soup :)

With the weather getting cooler, soups and stews make a weekly appearance on our dinner menu and this week I made Chicken Tortilla Soup :)


Ingredients:

  • 1
    tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2
    large yellow onion diced
  • 2
    cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1
    jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped
  • 2
    teaspoons chili powder
  • 1
    teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1
    teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1
    quart reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 1/4
    pounds plum tomatoes, diced ( I used can diced tomatoes)
  • 1
    4 1/2 ounce can green chilies
  • 1
    15 ounce can hominy, drained
  • 1/2
    teaspoon salt
  • 2
    cups shredded, cooked chicken
  • 1/3
    cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1
    ripe avocado, peeled, pitted and sliced
  • Lime wedges for serving

    Recipe:
    1. In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion, garlic and jalapeno. Cook, stirring, until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the chili powder, oregano and cumin; cook 1 minute more.
    2. Stir in the broth, tomatoes, chiles, hominy and salt. Bring to a boil, then immediately reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Add the chicken; simmer 10 minutes more. Stir in the cilantro.
    3. Ladle into individual bowls and serve garnished with the avocado slices and the lime wedges.
