Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4
For the soup:
  • 4 cups flavorful chicken broth (I like Trader Joe's Organic or Kitchen Basics)
  • 1 cooked chicken breast, shredded (I used meat from a rotisserie chicken)
  • 1 cup fresh salsa, like Pico De Gallo
  • ½ cup corn kernels (frozen or canned are OK)
  • ¼ cup pickled jalapenos, chopped
For the toppings:
  • 1 California avocado
  • 4 corn tortillas
  • 2 ounces Monterey Jack cheese, grated
  • chopped cilantro
For the soup:
  1. Combine the broth, chicken, salsa, corn and jalapenos in a large pot.
  2. Heat over low heat for 15 minutes, or until the flavors combine. Salt to taste.
For the topping:
  1. Toast the tortillas (I toast them directly on my gas burner) and cut into strips. Slice the avocado.
  2. Serve soup topped with tortilla strips, sliced avocado, cheese and chopped cilantro.
