Spicy Mexican Tortilla Soup
Heat the oil in a 6-quart saucepot over medium-high heat. Add the onion and peppers and cook for 2 minutes or until tender-crisp, stirring occasionally.Advertisement
Stir in the tomato paste, corn, beans, tomatoes, broth and chicken and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve topped with crushed tortilla chips or strips, if desired.
Serving Suggestion: Customize your soup with your favorite toppings! Try diced avocado, sour cream and/or chopped fresh cilantro. Serve with lime wedges on the side to add a twist of citrus.
Alternate Preparation: You can substitute 1 1/4 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into cubes, for the cooked chicken. In Step 1, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook until browned, stirring occasionally. Add the onion and peppers and proceed as directed above.
