I used leftover rotisserie chicken from Costco and added one can of black beans, drained and rinsed. I added two ears of fresh corn on the cob, 1 tsp. cumin and ½ tsp. of chili powder. I added 2 garlic cloves, chopped and 1 cup pace picante mild chunky salsa, 2T of tomato paste, just to give the background of the soup a little depth and dimension. I allowed the soup to simmer for a while to reduce and thicken up a bit. I also tossed in some fresh chopped cilantro for color, taste and freshness. I used Tostitos lime flavored chips, which is salted, so I didn’t need to add any salt to the soup. I also cut some fresh corn tortillas into thin strips, sprayed baking sheet with Pam, baked at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. I garnish the soup with a dollop of sour cream, shredded cheese, green onions and a squeeze of lime juice. It was a delicious, filling soup. The tortilla chips and black beans add a nice texture. The soup is seasoned just right, not too spicy, and fresh tasting. The chicken is tender and I really like the sweet corn niblets. I served this soup with a moist and flavorful, “Absolute Mexican Cornbread,” also from this website.
