Chicken Tortilla Soup

Oh buddy, I loveeeee to cook soup well i love soup in general. I love this soup and it is even man approved - Robert definitely ate a wholeee bunch of this! So, I'm guessing your man will like it too!
This soup CAN be spicy, just remember that the amount of spice you use is up to you. I suggest that you start off with a little amount and taste test until you get to the level of spice you desire! You don't want to end up with soup so spicy it is impossible to eat!

Chicken Tortilla Soup
1 onion, finely chopped
olive oil
4 cloves minced garlic
1 can diced tomatoes
6 cups chicken broth
1 can corn, drained
2 large chicken breasts
cayenne pepper
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp coriander
garlic power
1tsp cumin
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
tortilla chips and cheddar cheese

First, you saute your onions in the olive oil until they are tender. Add the garlic, cayenne pepper (I think I used about 1/4 tsp, use less if you don't like spice!), chili powder (Add less if you don't like spice) and stir. Stir in the chicken broth. Bring this to a boil. Then, add the corn and diced tomatoes. Let simmer.
In the mean time, pat your chicken dry and spice with cayenne pepper, chili powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Cook through and cut up into pieces.
Add the chicken to the soup. At this time add the coriander.
Serve this soup with tortilla chips and cheddar cheese - you can even serve it with sour cream! Yum yum!
