Cinco de Mayo - Chicken Tortilla Soup!

It's Cinco de Mayo!! And to celebrate, I made this wonderfully delicious chicken tortilla soup. You MUST try it. SOOO GOOD!

Chicken Tortilla Soup
Serves 4

2 T Olive Oil
1/2 medium onion, diced
1 jalapeno chili, diced
2 T minced garlic
4 cups chicken broth
1 can (15 oz) diced tomatoes
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 Bay leaf
1 cup black beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup frozen corn, thawed
1 cup cooked chicken breast, diced
Cilantro to taste
Salt and pepper to taste

After heating the oil in a large stock pot, add the onions, jalapenos, and garlic. Saute until onions become soft and translucent.

Add the broth, tomatoes, chili powder, cumin, oregano, Worcestershire, and bay leaf to the pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer, and allow to simmer for 1 hour.

Add the remaining ingredients. Simmer for another 15 minutes. Then serve!
