This soup has practically made me famous. The Husband can’t get enough and my Mom begs me to make it. It’s become our traditional Christmas Eve meal.

Ingredients:
Large Onion
4-6 Cloves Garlic
Green Pepper
Zucchini
Frozen Corn
2-3 Jalapenos
2 Small Cans Chicken Stock
1 Can Refried Beans
1 Large Can Tomatoes
2 Limes, zest and juice
Handful Chopped Cilantro
Shredded Chicken (1-1/12 breasts are usually sufficient)
Mexican seasoning

Toppings:
Shredded Cheese
Sour Cream
Tortilla strips

Directions:
Chop vegetables and sauté in olive oil until soft
Add in shredded chicken
Add in liquids/canned ingredients and let simmer until tomatoes lose their rawness
Add in lime and cilantro at the end.
Spices should be added with each step

Tortilla strips: Cut up tortillas & sauté with olive oil and salt until crispy

Tips
Takes longer than you’d think to make, but well worth it
If you have a stand mixer, shred the chicken with the paddle attachment. Saves a ton of time.
