This is a recipe I found on allrecipes.com and altered to make it a little easier.  I have been craving soup in this crazy cold weather. Soup is great because it keeps you full (and warm) for the night. And, love having leftovers the next day!

 

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 5 cups organic chicken broth
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1 can black beans, rinsed & drained
  • 1 cup frozen chopped onion
  • 1 cup shredded chicken (I buy from whole foods salad bar)
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1 avocado, chopped
  • 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese

Instructions:

In a large pot over medium heat, add oil, garlic and cumin. Add broth, corn, beans, onion, chicken, chili powder, lemon juice and salsa.  Reduce heat to low.  Simmer 20-30 minutes. When serving, top with chopped avocado and cheddar cheese.
