  • 3 chicken breasts
  • 1 1/2 TBSP Oil

  • In a large skillet add oil. Season both sides of chicken breast with salt and pepper. Once the chicken is cooked through set aside. Add onion in the skillet and cook until translucent. Dice chicken. Add in corn, chicken and tomatoes. Stir until heated.
  • Add in tomato paste, chicken broth and water. Stirring until paste is mixed into the water (you can also do this in a bowl and pour in, but, I hate doing dishes!). Drop beans into the mixture carefully and stir. Add in cilantro, sugar, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, lime juice and cumin.
  • Let the Chicken Tortilla Soup simmer on low for about an hour.
  • With a small amount of water add to the masa. Add into the soup mixture and let simmer for another 15-30 minutes.

  • Prior to serving crush tortilla chips into the bottom of the bowl. Ladle the soup into bowl and top with sour cream, shredded cheese and fresh cilantro.
