Mexican Chicken Soup


I love soup. I love Fall. I love soup in the Fall. So I'm going to be posting some of my all-time favorite warm-your-belly great for fall soup recipes. But actually they are good anytime of year!

1.5 lbs cut up chicken (or 1 can chicken breast from your food storage)

1/2 cup chopped onion (or substitute dried)

1-2 tsp. minced garlic

3T butter or olive oil

2 chicken bouillon cubes

1 c. boiling water

1/2 - 1tsp. cumin (I like a lot)

2 c. half and half (or evaporated milk)

2 c. shredded cheese (Monterrey jack is best, but I've also used Velveeta, low fat cheese, or whatever I have in the fridge)

1 can creamed corn

1 can diced green chilies, undrained

Brown chicken, onion and garlic in butter. Dissolve bouillon in water. Add to chicken. Add cumin and bring to boil, then simmer 5 minutes. Add milk and the rest of ingredients and simmer til cheese melts through.

This is great served with chips, or over rice, or with a can of black beans added. Yum!
