My good friend Maribel shared this recipe during a Bunco gathering, and Im forever grateful!!!  She is one of the best cooks (hands down) that I know.  Bunco at her house consisted of good food, good drink and lots of dice grabbing fun.IMG_6373

Over the years, this recipe has evolved with our busy lives.  Once boiling the chicken breasts, now I am completely thrilled to pick up a rotisserie chicken at the market, making this soup a quick dinner.  Recently I started adding a can of corn (any variety) to add a little crunch, and I think it works.  Additions at serving time include chopped cilantro, shredded cheese, avocado slices, and tortilla strips.
