Tomatillo Chicken Soup

I've tried a lot of soups in my day. I love soup.
Who doesn't on a cold, winter day?
I've found the one that has topped them all! My sister Stacie is always coming up with these outstanding recipes, and this soup might have changed my life for the better. Very healthy, and out of this world good!!

It's not even a question, you HAVE to try it.

{tomatillo chicken soup}
serves 6-8 people

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 size, don’t forget to remove the husk and wash)
1 tablespoon cumin

add the rest & simmer approximately 15-25 minutes:
3 chicken breasts, cooked & shredded
1 49 1/2oz chicken broth can
1 16oz fresh salsa from the grocery store deli
1 15.5 oz cans yellow hominy (drained)
1 15.5 oz cans white hominy (drained)

**serve with:blue or white tortilla chips
avocado chunks
white rice
shredded cheese
sour cream
fresh lime juice

**these add-ons are a must! [they make the soup!]
i like to add white rice to the soup, then lime juice, sour cream, shredded cheese, and avacado slices. then, i eat it with tortilla chips.

Melissa, I follow your blog on my reader and just found this b/c of your comment about Stacies soup (I'm going to make it this week). Not only do I adore your fam. blog, I'm going nuts over this. Husband and I are going uber-healthy (back from pregnancy-eat-whatever-i-want land), and this blog is super motivating and useful. I am subscribing to it today on my reader. I'm so impressed with you- wish I were in Utah so I could go to one of your classes. Hope you had a wonderful birthday, girl. Love you to pieces.
