Tortilla Soup a la Luba

Saute until softened, not brown:
4 Scallions
2-3 Cloves Garlic, Minced
3 T Oil, I always use Olive Oil :)

Add the following ingredients, cook until the chicken is cooked:
4 Small Cans Low Sodium Chicken Broth
2 Chicken Breasts on bone but skin removed, can use boneless, skinless
4-5 Dashes Tobasco
1 1/2 t Oregano
1 1/2 t Marjorum
1/2 t Black Pepper
Salt to taste
1 28 ounce Can Diced Tomatoes
1 t Cumin
1 t Chili Powder

Add towards the end:
1 Bunch Cilantro, Chopped

Remove chicken, de-bone if necessary, shred and add back to soup.

Garnish with tortilla chips, shredded cheddar or jack, lime and avocado.

Background: I love this easy soup, and I love Luba! She is so fun and sweet! I had this soup at her daughter Barbara's in New Jersey. I was happy to find out how easy it is to make! So thanks Luba and Barbara for sharing this great recipe with me! To me this is true comfort food, so don't hesitate to add your favorite beans or corn to it! xo
