Florida Chicken Tortilla Soup


2-3 Florida chicken breasts (cooked and diced into bite-size chunks)

2 ears fresh Florida sweet corn, cut off the cob

2 Florida bell peppers (your favorite color), diced

2 Florida tomatoes, diced small

1 small onion, diced small

1 jalapeño (remove seeds to lessen the heat), finely chopped

1 poblano pepper, diced small

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 small can green chiles

2 cans black beans, rinsed

2 tablespoons chili powder

6 cups low sodium chicken broth

2 cups water

1 lime, juiced

Hot sauce (your favorite)

5 small corn tortillas, cut into long thin strips

Olive oil for cooking

Sea salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste


Pre-heat a large skillet; carefully add the oil. Sauté the onions, bell peppers, jalapeño, poblano, and corn until soft; about 8 minutes. Add the minced garlic, tomatoes, and green chilis and cook for additional 5 minutes. Next add rinsed black beans, chili powder, cumin, and oregano. Stir all the ingredients to combine. Pour in the chicken broth and water; add the diced chicken and tortilla strips now. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes, finish with fresh lime juice. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed. Serve with fresh avocado, sour cream, and crushed tortilla chips if desired.
