Turner's Tortilla Soup

Tonight I made tortilla soup. I love Mexican food, especially cilantro. To make this soup you need: 
Olive oil for the soup pot
1/2 an onion
A few cloves of garlic
2 cans of rinsed beans (I used black beans and pinto beans)
About 2 cups of frozen corn
2 chopped up pre-cooked chicken breasts
1 1/2 boxes of chicken stock
2 cans diced tomatoes
Large spoonful of tomato paste
2 limes (plus more for garnish)
Handful of chopped cilantro (plus more for garnish)
Chili powder

First chop your onion and garlic (I used a garlic press). Heat oil in the soup pot over medium high heat, and then add the onion and garlic. Rinse beans and add to the pot. Then add chicken, salt, pepper, cumin, chili powder, and oregano. Stir and then add chicken broth, tomatoes and tomato paste. Add limes to taste. 

Serve with shredded cheese, sour cream, cilantro, limes, and chips!
