Tortilla Soup

On Saturday I made tortilla soup.  This is easy-peasy and really good---although a warning that it is on the spicy side.

1 can Mexican corn, drained
1 can black beans with jalepenos, drained
1 can diced tomatoes with chiles
2 cups chicken broth
2 cups water
2 teaspoons Maggi chicken caldo mix
1 lb chicken, cubed
lime juice to taste
Simmer for 2-3 hours, then serve with sliced avocado, tortilla chips, and sour cream and cheese garnish.

This is how sweet my little man is.  Here he is sitting on the couch reading his Bible and holding hands with his dad. I took a picture so I could remember this in a few years when he's an impossible teenager!

Update:  Low sodium version - instead of 2 cups chicken broth, 2 cups water, and 2 tsps Maggi caldo mix, use 4 cups low sodium chicken broth, 4 cloves minced garlic, 1 tsp chili powder, 1 tsp ground cumin, 1/2 tsp oregano, and 1/2 tsp onion powder.
