{tomatillo chicken soup}


i thought i was high time for a recipe on here, and what is better than a nice warm soup for the freezing cold winter.
i'm obsessed with this soup and i've made it a few times the past few weeks. my friend krissa made it for a girls dinner and it was super yummy. so, i hope she doesn't mind that i post it. i halved her recipe as this still makes a ton. you could easily serve 6-8 people with this and have seconds for each. i ate ours for the last 3 days with no complaint from me.
with this soup you have to add all the fixins like the avacado, rice, and lime juice for a great flavor.

{tomatillo chicken soup}

saute in big stock pot approx 10-15 min:
1/2 large onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 lb tomatillos, diced (about 5 medium)
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander

add the rest &simmer approximately 15-25 minutes:
3 chicken breasts cooked & shredded  (you can also leave this out if you want a vegetarian soup, i just add an extra can of hominy)
2 32 oz boxes of chicken broth
1 16oz fresh salsa from the deli
1 15.5 oz cans yellow hominy (drained)
1 15.5 oz cans white hominy (drained)

serve with:  ( a must!)
blue or white tortilla chips
avocado chunks
white rice
shredded cheese
sour cream
lime juice

*so if you don't know what hominy is, and i didn't either... this is what it looks like. it comes in a can right near where the canned corn is.

enjoy!
