Ingredients

I like my soup a little thicker (more like stew) so if you want thinner soup, use more chicken broth
2 Lg cans of Tomato paste
1 Lg box of Chicken Broth
1 Med Onion
2 Red Bell Peppers
2 cans of Corn
3-4 Cloves of Garlic
1 can of Black Beans
8 Chicken Thighs
3-4 Med Avocados
Pepperjack Cheese
Oil
Salt and Pepper
Chili Powder
Paprika
Red Pepper Flakes
Tortilla Chips


Precooking Prep


Dice onion and peppers into 1/4 in pieces


Mince garlic


De-bone the chicken thighs and dice into 1 in cubes


(I leave some meat on the bones and throw them into the soup to cook as well)


De-pit and dice avocados into 1 in cubes


Grate pepperjack cheese (1-2 cups)



Cooking


On medium, heat oil in large pot


Sweat onions and garlic for a few minutes


Season with salt, pepper


Add chicken and just brown outsides (~2 minutes)


Season with chili powder and paprika


Add diced peppers and let cook for another 2 minutes or so


Add tomato paste, chicken broth, thigh bones and bring everything to a boil


Season with salt and pepper


Add corn and beans


Add red pepper flakes to desired heat and additional seasoning to taste


Simmer until meat falls off the thigh bones


Turn off heat, add diced avocados and let residual heat warm the avocados for a few minutes


Serve in bowls and top with pepperjack cheese


Eat with tortilla chips on the side or throw them into the soup


Pairs Well With


Notes

I wanted to make soup so I looked at the ingredients of a can of tortilla soup and bought them so I could make it from scratch. I basically do it by ear so its always a little different each time.
