We had another snow storm last week and the kids had off from school again. We've had so much snow that the kids didn't even want to play outside anymore. I guess they are finally bored of making snow men and snow forts.
Chicken Tortilla Soup
2 TBS olive oil
1 medium onion, finely chopped
2 large cloves garlic, chopped
2 ½ quarts chicken stock, preferably homemade
1 (28-ounce) can tomato sauce
dried arbol chili peppers, crushed (amount to your liking or another dried pepper)
2 cups frozen corn
1 can (15 oz) black beans, rinsed and drained
4 cups cooked shredded chicken
1 avocado, pitted, peeled and diced
In a large Dutch oven, heat oil and saute onion and garlic for a few minutes or or until it starts to brown. Add chicken stock, tomato sauce, peppers, corn, beans, chicken and masa harina. Bring to boil, reduce heat to low and simmer for 25 minutes. Add avocado and simmer for 5 more minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Top with crushed tortilla chips and sour cream. Makes about 6 to 8 servings.
