Chicken Tortilla Yum, Yum

Here's our dinner tonight...I know most of you probably don't care about recipes but I need a place to put things I've created so they don't get lost and maybe someone out there might actually use something I made. It's nothing fancy, just dump it in and let it cook but I tend to forget simple things like this. Enjoy!

Chicken Taco Soup
2 T Olive Oil
1 Med. Onion
1/2 cup pepper (we only had red but green would probably be better)
2 cloves garlic crushed
2 medium chicken breasts, cooked and chopped
1 can whole kernel corn
1 can black beans
1 can kidney beans
1 can diced tomatoes
2 cups chicken broth
1 package taco seasoning
lime juice
sharp cheddar cheese
Tortilla chips
Sour Cream

In a stockpot/dutchoven, simmer onion, pepper and garlic in olive oil until translucent, be careful not to burn the garlic. Add taco seasoning, tomatoes, beans, corn and stock. Simmer for 15 minutes. Add diced chicken, simmer 20 minutes. Add lime juice, stir. Dish out tortilla chips into bowls, top with soup. Top soup with what you like: shredded cheese, sour cream, more chips, cilantro, etc...
