Answer by Sandy H
I just tried this soup out the other day and it was so good! If you want it to be all vegetables, you can omit the chicken and add other vegetables that you think would be good in its place.

Cook Time: 25 minutes Serves: 4-6 Easy


2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 onion, finely diced
1 yellow bell pepper, diced
1 jalapeno, seeded and diced
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
32 ounces low-sodium chicken broth
1 (14.5-ounce) can diced Mexican style tomatoes
1 cup frozen corn kernels, thawed
1/4 cup roughly chopped cilantro, plus 2 tablespoons
1 (12-ounce) boneless skinless chicken breast, diced
1 cup crushed tortilla chips
Sour cream, for topping
Monterey Jack, shredded, for topping
2 limes, wedged


In a large heavy bottomed pot, heat the oil on medium-high heat. Saute the onions. Add bell pepper, jalapenos, salt and pepper. Cook until the onions become translucent. Add the cumin and stir until fragrant. Add the chicken broth, tomatoes, corn, and 1/4 cup of the cilantro. Add the diced chicken and cook through for about 10 minutes. Season with salt, to taste.

Ladle soup into bowls and divide the crushed tortilla chips between the bowls. Top with sour cream, Monterey jack cheese, cilantro, sliced avocado, and lime wedges.
