Chicken Tortilla Soup

Yesterday, after a long day at work, I came home to find my soon-to-be husband in the kitchen baking a cake. And he had already washed laundry and done the dishes. So all I had to do was make chicken tortilla soup.

It is quickly becoming one of our staples. It has all the ingredients of a burrito in a soup.

To make, boil the following ingredients in a large pot in the order listed below:

Chicken stock, water, rice, onion, garlic, tomatoes, bell peppers, zucchini, yellow squash, jalapenos, cumin, Thai chili garlic sauce, chili powder, lime, garlic salt, chicken, can of black beans, can of corn

Top with Monterrey Jack, tortilla chips, cilantro, and ripe avocado. 

I think I'll make it for mom and dad when they get here in two (!) weeks.
