Sundance Tortilla Soup with Grilled Chicken

3 Tbsp olive oil
1 jalapeno pepper, fresh minced
1 red onion, medium size (optional)
3 C Roma tomatoes, diced
3 C corn kernels, preferably fresh
1 Tbsp cumin seed
2 qts chicken stock
2 Tbsp fresh cilantro
3 C grilled chicken breast, diced
Garnish: 1 avocado, 1 lime wedged, 2 corn tortillas cut into strips, salt, pepper, Tabasco

In a large saucepan, heat oil. Add jalapenos, onions, tomatoes and corn. Cook 15 minutes, stirring until all are soft. Add cilantro and cumin, cook another 5 minutes. Add chicken stock, bring to a boil. Then, reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Add chicken and fresh cilantro. Heat through and serve.
***I like my soup "thick." So, at the end I added 2 Tbsp flour to thicken the broth. I made a half recipe for our family, but ended up sharing with neighbors. So, I added 1/2 can of black beans to stretch it a little further.***

we made this last night and loved it! We used just shredded chicken (not grilled, which I am sure adds a nice flavor) but we loved the spice and even added black beans and tortilla chips :)
