    jalapeno, chopped, if desired

  • Note: Use only 1 stalk celery and 1 carrot if you do not want your soup as chunky. You can also use the tomatoes drained if you don't want as broth as tomatoey. 2 cans of broth will also make the soup

Directions

Simmer EVOO, garlic, onion and celery in large saucepan or soup pot for about 8 minutes. I also add in corn at this point and get the corn somewhat pan roasted for extra flavor. Then add broth, can tomatoes, diced chicken, carrots, cilantro, little pepper, lime juice. Let simmer low to med. Heat for about 30 minutes. Top with avocado, Jack cheese, chopped jalapeno (if desired spicy hot) and serve with tortilla chips.
