Tortilla Soup Recipe

This is a soup that my mother-in-law used to make for us all the time. It was fun to make something from home :) Its super easy and super delicious!! 

What you need:
2T butter or olive oil
1 large garlic clove minced (I used way more than this)
4-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts cooked and shredded or cubed
1 32 oz. container of Chicken Stock or broth
2-14 oz. cans diced tomatoes
1-2 T fresh lime juice ( I use 2 whole limes, we love lime juice!)
1 c. Salsa
1/2 c. chopped fresh cilantro
1 T ground cumin (I didnt use quite this much) 

Monterrey Jack or Pepper Jack Cheese to sprinkle on top when served 
Tortilla chips 

Saute chicken and minced garlic in oil or butter in large pot
When chicken is cooked take out and shred or cube
Put chicken back in pot with all remaining ingredients and simmer about 20-30 min   

Add cheese when served and we usually put in more lime juice and either crush chips on top or use chips as a spoon!
Enjoy! :)
