The easiest Chicken Tortilla Soup, Ever!

Have I mentioned I've been on a soup kick lately? Well I think with the cold weather, soup is the one comforting thing I crave to really warm me up, both body and soul! For my other cold weather soup creations you can check them out here and here.
So today on the menu and officially my new current favorite soup: Chicken Tortilla Soup. 
Not only is this delicious and soooo flavorful, but its honestly the EASIEST recipe ever. I kid you not, I made this in 5 minutes after work. And I'll tell you, after working 8 hours and coming home, going to the gym, and finally getting a chance to sit down -- cooking (as much as I love to do it) is not on my top priority list. But this soup is literally a 5 minute meal. Winning! And D liked it as well (and he typically doesn't like Mexican flavors/cuisine) so double winning!!
{ Chicken Tortilla Soup }

What You'll Need:
1 Box Organic Free Range Chicken Broth
1 Jar Trader Joe's Chunky Salsa
2 Cans Organic Black Beans
1 Cup Trader Joe's Frozen Roasted Organic Corn
1 Can of Premium White Chicken or 2 Boiled Organic Chicken Breasts (preferred)

Optional Garnishes (I personally like all of the following!)
Avocado
Cilantro
Mexican Blend Cheese 
Corn Tortilla Chips


Directions:
Combine all items in a large pot over medium heat. Stir well. When soup has reached desired temperature, ladle into a bowl and garnish with avocado, cilantro and cheese and broken up tortilla chips. 
See -- I told you how ridiculously easy this recipe is!!
 You can even make this soup more healthy by substituting raw black beans, raw corn and uncooked chicken into a crock pot and let it cook for the day (as opposed to the canned items) but again, the canned stuff was a lifesaver to make on a busy weekday : )
perfect for a rainy, chilly day.
Bon appetite friends!
Hope you all enjoy this recipe as much as I do!
