Spicy Chicken Tortilla Soup


2 Teaspoons olive oil
1 medium sweet yellow onion, chopped
6 garlic cloves, minced
2 fresh jalapeño peppers, chopped
1 medium green bell pepper, chopped
5 small boneless skinless chicken breasts (I bought the pre-marinated breast from Whole Foods (cilantro lime)
2 Cups of Frozen Corn
1/2 Cup of dry white wine
2 teaspoons cumin
2 teaspoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
64oz of chicken broth
28oz of canned diced tomatoes
16oz of canned tomato sauce

Add oil to bowl and sear chicken on both sides. Remove and saute onion, garlic, jalapeño, and green pepper until soft.

Add the rest of the ingredients into your bowl and bring to a boil.

After 15 minutes remove chicken and shred.

Add the chicken back and let simmer for 90 mins.

Serve with crushed tortilla strips, fresh avocado, and a cheese of your choice.

Serves 10 people.
