Healthy Chicken Tortilla Soup

Here is another healthy, easy dinner recipe.

I sautee boneless, skinless chicken breasts in a bit of olive oil.  I chop 2 celery stalks ( with leaves) and 1/2 red pepper and one white onion.  add to the sautee pan with one smashed garlic clove, one t. cumin, one t. chili powder and sea salt and black pepper,  and cook until nice and browned.  Add one cup of chicken or vegie broth to get all the yummy flavor off the bottom of the pan.

Throw into the crock-pot.  Add another 2 cups of broth, a large can or bottle of tomatoes, one cup of frozen corn and 1/2 can of black beans.  ( I already had some left over from the other night when we had some corn-tortilla soft tacos).  Let simmer until you are ready to eat...on low for 4 hours, on high for 1-2 hours.

Take some small corn tortillas and them into thin strips with a pizza cutter...quick and easy!  sprinkle a bit of sea salt on them and spread on a cookie sheet and broil just until them, it only takes a few minutes!

cut up one avacado, chop a bit of cilantro, and chop up some lime, and grate a bit of pepper-jack cheese...

Ladle the soup in the bowls and let everyone add their own avocado, cilantro, lime, tortilla strips, and fat free sour cream or plain greek yogurt to top...
