Chicken Tortilla Soup

2 chicken breasts
1/2 T olive oil
2 cloves garlic
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp chili powder
2 cans chicken broth or 4 bouillon cubes and 4 C water
1 can corn
1 large onion
1 T lime or lemon juice
1 C salsa or.. 1 can tomatoes w/ green chilis
*can of rinsed black beans optional

Chips and shredded cheese to serve with

1. In soup pot, drizzle oil and add chicken. Lightly brown on each side.
2. Add minced garlic(I cheat and finely shred), diced onion until translucent.
3. Add the rest. Lett simmer for at least 20 minutes. (This is a great recipe for the crock-pot... just throw it all in and cook on low for 6 hours/or more. Chicken can be frozen!)
4. Pull chicken out, shred, and return to pot. Done.
5. Serve over a pile of crunched tortilla chips and under a pile of cheese! :)
