    I was aksed to give the recipe for this soup I mentioned on another topic.
    Used to eat frequently at this restaurant in Austin and asked for their soup recipe just before I moved back to VA 4 years ago. Of course, it was written in amounts for about a hundred people, so I adjusted it for my own use! And in the way of soup, I add or detract things from it as the whim or 'on-hand' suits me. Measurements aren't given but that's an easy personal fix for anyone who cooks alot.

    This is very brothy until the tortillas and cheese are added, which is why I like it.

    1-2 cans Swanson chicken broth
    couple poached chicken breasts, chopped
    some chopped onion
    couple cans Rotel Tomatoes Lime and Cilantro or one of Rotel Original (hotter) and one of lime/cilantro
    can diced tomatoes
    canned or frozen white corn kernels
    some minced carrots
    a bit of minced garlic
    salt and lots of freshly ground pepper
    cilantro
    cumin
    Sometimes I add leftover black beans or left over rice.

    Simmer as long as you wish, it just gets better. Freezes great, too!

    Top with sliced avocado, tortilla strips, jack cheese, and a healthy squeeze of lime (or lemon in a pinch)
