Ingredients

  • 2 lb Chicken boneless & skinless cut in bite sized chunks
  • 2 32 oz Chicken stock
  • 2 14.5 oz can Tomatoes Diced - I use Red Gold petite diced tomatoes with green chilies
  • 4 oz can Diced green chiles add another if you like yours spicy
  • 15 oz can Corn
  • 1 Medium Onion diced
  • 3 cloves Garlic smashed a bit
  • 2 Carrots diced
  • 2 Medium Potatoes peeled and cubed
  • 1 Chayote squash diced
  • 2 Bay leaves
  • 1 tsp Cumin ground
  • 1 tbsp Chili Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Allspice ground
  • 1 pinch Cayenne
  • Salt to Taste roughly 2 tbsp
  • 2 Limes juiced

To Serve

  • 2 Avocados diced
  • 1/2 cup Cilantro chopped
  • Sour Cream
  • Tortilla Chips
  • Colby Jack Cheese Shredded

Instructions

  • In a large pot add everything but the lime juice and serving items.
  • Put on Medium heat and cover.
  • Cook for about 40 minutes. You want the veggies soft but not mushy.
  • Before serving add lime juice to taste and the chopped cilantro.
  • Serve over hearty tortilla chips, avocado, sour cream and cheese.

Notes

If you find the chicken flavor is thin at the end, stir in a tablespoon of Chicken Better than Bouillon. I would suggest doing this before the lime and cilantro are added.
