Chicken Tortilla Soup

1TBS Olive Oil
2-3 Chicken breasts (chopped into bite sized pieces) * I cut the pieces really tiny
1 medium onion (chopped)
3 cloves of garlic (minced)
2 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. oregano
1 48 oz. box of swanson chicken broth (3lbs)
1 extra can of chicken broth
1 can corn
1 can of diced roasted green chilies
1/2 cup of salsa
1/2 cup of cooked rice
1 can diced tomatoes

In a large stock pot put in olive oil & chicken pieces for about 5 minutes till they are cooked thru. Then add the onion & garlic & saute. Then add the chili powder & oregano. Then add everything else in except the cooked rice. Bring to a boil for about 5 minutes. Then let it simmer for about 20-25 minutes. Add the rice (cooked) at the end.

The Results:
I made this recipe up a little while ago. I love this soup and it makes alot so I am able to eat it through the week for lunch. This is my husbands favorite and I really don't think you can mess it up. Perfect on a nice cold day. Go make it. Yum!
You can serve it with cornbread or some good ol' drop biscuits. On top we always put cheese. We have used Pepperjack cheese, sharp cheese. You can put sour cream on top or crushed tortilla chips. Whatever floats your boat.:)

*** I posted this on here a while ago and wanted to update the pictures. Best soup!**
