INGREDIENTS

  • 4 teaspoons (20 mililiters) vegetable oil , divided
  • 1 teaspoon (5 mililiters) Minced Garlic
  • 3/4 cup (175 mililiters) finely diced red onion
  • 1 can (796 mililiters) diced tomatoes
  • 4 tablespoons (59 mililiters) Club House Southwest Chipotle Seasoning , divided
  • 1 container (950 mililiters) Chicken Stock
  • 2 cups (500 mililiters) diced boneless , skinless chicken breast (½-inch dice)
  • 1 1/2 cups (350 mililiters) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups (350 mililiters) crumbled corn chips
  • 3/4 cup (175 mililiters) peeled , pitted and cubed avocado
  • 6 tablespoons (90 mililiters) sliced green onion

Preparation

  • 1 In a large pot, heat 2 tsp (10 mL) of vegetable oil over medium heat. Add garlic and onion and sauté until softened, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  • 2 Add diced tomatoes and 3 Tbsp (45 ml) of seasoning and simmer until liquid from canned tomatoes is almost evaporated.
  • 3 Add chicken stock and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
  • 4 Using a hand-held immersion blender, carefully puree the soup (Note: Use caution if using a traditional blender. Blend soup in small batches and remove vent from blender lid, covering the hole with a folded tea towel, to relieve pressure from escaping steam). Return soup to pot.
  • 5 In a bowl, season diced chicken with remaining 1 tbsp (15 mL) seasoning. In a medium saucepan, heat remaining 2 tsp (10 mL) oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken and sauté until fully cooked through and slightly browned. Add Chicken to soup.
  • 6 Divide soup into 6 bowls and top with ¼ cup (60 mL) each of cheese and crumbled corn chips. Garnish each soup with 2 Tbsp (30 ml) of diced avocado and 1 Tbsp (15 ml) of sliced green onions.
