Soup Recipe - Chicken Taco Soup

Since this bad bout of depression that I've been through, I've lost my appetite for many things.  One of them being protein.  Other than peanut butter, hard boiled eggs and cheese, the only way I can tolerate protein is if it's cut up little and mixed in with veggies.  Soup is great way to deal with this so I've been experimenting with a variety of different soup recipes.

My latest original soup creation is Chicken Taco Soup:
If no one minds that I pat myself on the back, this one is absolutely awesome!  I also prefer to eat low fat, low carb and low salt so this is quite healthy!

Chicken Taco Soup

2 1/2 pounds cooked Chicken Breast diced.
4 cloves Garlic minced
1/2 large Onion diced
3 tablespoons Olive Oil
4 - 14 ounce cans Low Sodium Chicken Broth
1 - 28 ounce can Stewed Tomatos
1 - 16 ounce jar Mild Pace Picante Sauce
2 teaspoons Chili Powder
1 teaspoon Cumin
1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
1 teaspoon Onion Powder
Pepper to taste

Shredded Cheddar Cheese
Sliced Green Onions
Sliced Black Olives

Heat Olive Oil in stock pot, add diced onion and garlic.  Saute until onions become transparent.  Add diced chicken and chicken broth.  Add stewed tomations, picante sauce and seasonings.  Simmer for 30 minutes.

Before serving, garnish soup with cheddar cheese, green onions and black olives.  YUM!
