BBQ Tortilla Soup

My husband was not feeling well today and requested his favorite “feel good” soup: Chicken Tortilla Soup.  I don’t use any particular recipe; however, today’s version was pretty good with BBQ baked chicken.

BBQ Tortilla Soup

1 pound chicken tenders, diced

3 tablespoons BBQ sauce

2 teaspoons olive oil

3 tablespoons onion, finely diced

3 tablespoons pepper, finely diced

1 clove garlic, minced

8 cups chicken broth

1 cup rice, cooked

1.5 cups black beans, drained and rinsed

1 cup corn

1/2 diced tomatoes

1/4 teaspoon chili powder

1/8 teaspoon pepper

1/4 teaspoon coriander

Cheese for garnish

Avocado for garnish

Tortilla Chips for garnish

Preheat oven to 350º.  Line bottom of cooking dish with BBQ sauce.  Toss chicken in remaining sauce and cook for 30 minutes in the oven.  Heat oil and saute onion, pepper, and garlic in soup pot.  Add broth, rice, black beans, corn, tomatoes, and spices.  Simmer for 20 minutes.  Add cooked chicken.  Serve into soup bowls and garnish with cheese, avocado, and tortilla chips.  Enjoy!

Gadget Note:  I used an avocado peeler from Pampered Chef.  I received this cool tool from my aunt and uncle for Christmas.  It has been very handy!
