Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe

I got the following recipe from my good friend Katie.  Thanks Katie!


1 onion finely chopped
clove of garlic
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
4 cups of chicken broth
1 teaspoon ground red chilies
3/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 15 oz. can tomato puree
1 can of corn (normal size) -drained
1 can of black beans (normal size) - drained
1 can of petite diced tomatoes (normal size) - undrained
2 cups of cooked chicken (I used canned and drained 2 cans make it hearty enough for dinner)

add-on for after its cooked:
tortilla chips
sour cream
shredded cheese


In a big pot cook the onion and garlic with the vegetable oil.  Then add in the rest of the ingredients and let it simmer for a while.  When you are ready to eat you can serve it with any of the add-ons listed above.
