Tasty Tuesday - Hearty Chicken Tortilla Soup

Yesterday, I made this wonderful chicken tortilla soup and wanted to share it with you.  It tastes a lot like On The Border's recipe!
These are the ingredients you'll need:

3 uncooked,boneless chicken breasts, cut up in thin strips
8 cups of chicken broth ( 2 quarts) I use fat-free broth.
3/4 cup of uncooked regular, long-grained white rice
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 can (11 oz.) Mexican-style corn
1 cup chunky salsa
1 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
2 Tbsp. lime juice
fresh zucchini
crisp tortilla strips

I realize those aren't zucchini squash, but this is all I could find at Walmart. I'm not really sure what they're called, but they tasted just like zucchini.  Here's a picture after I got all my ingredients measured and cut up.  Aren't the colors pretty?

Step 1: Spray a saucepot with vegetable cooking spray and heat it for one minute.  Add cut up chicken and cook until white, stirring often.

Step 2:  Add the broth, rice, squash and cumin.  Stir well and heat to a boil.  Cover and cook over low heat for 20 minutes.

Step 3:  Stir in corn, salsa, cilantro and lime juice.  Heat until desired temperature and you are ready to serve!

Add some tortilla strips and cheese.  Yum-m-m!  Just perfect for a winter evening!
